gonna be back in the good lands for a bit and will have an hour or two to kill in PM. Let's have a drink or sutin, idk.
I finish work at 3, after that I'm up for whatever.
i should be there by then.
I'll book my coach and will let you know soon.
and also because I'm going to book now. I wanna be home by about 7.45 or sutin so probs til 7?
I can probably be in town for 6/6:30ish
i know it because whenever i say anything EVERYBODY starts having a go
What does that mean?
I might come say hi on the way tthough
The last Big Boys Beano was CLASS (well, until you-know-who had his little racist episode, obviously).
yes, I am :)
if not I will buy you a beer sir.
so my coach gets to Shudehill at about six. Which bar's are good now? I'm not going to pretend I know where's good anymore. Might just go to Garrett for the lolz.
you get a free pizza if you spend over £6
could just go to a right old man's boozer like the Hare and Hounds. There's a man in there who has a house full of folders about everything that's ever happened in Manchester city centre, full of old photos and stuff, he's ace to talk to. Alternatively Almost Famous would be wicked, especially if you want to eat (and aren't vegetarian)
I'd just like to get back to notlob to watch the bolton game. So maybe another fifteen minutes.
I'll go with whatever the people decide.
The best pub in Manchester (by miles) is a 5-minute walk away. Go up Shudehill (away from town) onto Rochdale Road, and the Angel is on your left.
been on the website
what the fuck is that music, son?
just places realistic if you have an hour. I like the Angel. I prefer Marble though if we're heading that way
Love the beer, and obviously it's a fine building, but it's too loud, too busy, the staff aren't very good, and idk, i get a bit seasick in there.
The Angel's a proper local, the staff are brilliant, the food's better, the fire's on more, more dogs.
dont do that actually
if you want to stay close to Shude Hill. Not been in there for a while though so can't say how good it is now.
I've been a couple of times in the last month and it's still great. It's probably my favourite pub that side of town but one I always forget about, plus you get to walk near Daily Express AND 42nd charity building <3
The Space at 42nd street in our GM building of the year award. I'm quite looking forward to going for a tour.
do you have a contact to tour? I've been trying for a couple of months but not found a contact online and everytime I'm there it's shut. I've looked through every window in the place though, like a paedo
asking for a tour with a link to the press releases we'd done about the shortlist.
probably best to keep an eye out for open days.
I'll just pop in this week when they're actually open
Good beer, friendly staff, nice mixed clientele. Just not very comfortable seating-wise. Feels like what it is, a bar in a shop. Great for one or two pints, but always end up moving on to The Castle.
and as it's currently looking like nice weather then I think the beer garden here is a great choice but I'm not overly bothered.
Bloody nightshifters lost this thread didn't they. Where the hell is this place?
shall we say there from 6ish?
Each to their own
let's just say Trof.
I can literally fall off the coach and land in there.
see you there :) Though I don't know what you look like but I'll walk in with vine, C-r and wily so you'll think woah who are those cool dudes and you'll know it's us
I do know what you look like, having watched you at that football game
that's what you're talking about down there, isn't it? I came to watch dots play and then we went to some really really shit bar after on New Wakefield Street
nah I wasn't there. I went to a kickabout with gowman and his mates (inc. dots) once though but just like jumpers for goalposts and such.
Cool story bro.
see you all friday.

i'll pm you guys my mobile, text us before hand and (as it's dependent on traffic etc) I'l be able to give you an eta nearer the town.
although I'm a little bit upset you don't want me walking in with you.
he kept looking at me, he caught me taking a photo of him too :D
I'm sure the staring thing was down to you staring and trying to get all paps on his ass.
OK. But I will be coming from Stockport, not C-town
tbf there are a billion pubs around there. We'll just end up in Trof won't we.
Are you the one who came down to footy with gowman (RIP) once?
Ah yes I remember him saynig you played. Did we say hey? I can't remember it was long ago sorry :(
You played in net mostly, and I think I took over from you after a while (I'm tall).
but Trof still wins
i make a horrible first impression though
I'll just call you a cunt and then we'll laugh about it. Deal?
I have money for two drinks, that's one for me and one for you.
hopefully some money will have come through x
Are we going to Trof or Fringe?
Trof is in the NQ next to TV21. Everyone knows where Trof is, come on now
will drop by if so.
hot girl with a camera turns up and is actually f_t_b.
I mean come on, Matt isn't even a name.
I think Trof
It's Trof at 6. I'll probably be there a bit early working, not behind the bar, like typing stuff (on DiS) or something so before it gets ridiculously busy, which it will, I shall lie down across as many chairs as possible.
he's arriving in Shudehill, this is the closest place (except the Hare and Hounds) that we can go to.
I am ambling Trof-wards.
