Got a bit a shock when spinning pigeon appeared.
He has definitely got the wrong house.

Although, I am partial to a bit of pigeon...

Went for an afternoon out at the weekend. If you are ever in Nantwich you should try this new place called 'Street'. Great drinks and lovely food.
(review to go onto Google once the place is listed!)

+Ade S  Yeah I've done that before. I added it via maps but I'm assuming there is a review process before things are added?

Just had an enlightening conversation with my work colleague:
Ste: "...I'll pop on a housecoat and go downstairs"
Me: "Housecoat?"
Ste: "yeah you know.. a dressing gown"

My colleague thinks he is Hugh Heffner

Surely a 'onesie' will suffice?

Any ideas for Adrians project in Manchester?
 
Hey Local Guides!

I've got a project coming up soon to take some photos of Manchester. The brief is fun, social, hidden gems with a target audience of 18-25 year old foreign, independent, travellers. I'm to avoid the obvious tourist spots but highlight the quirky ones. I already have a few ideas in mind but curious to know if you all have anything to share that would be useful for me.

I'm planning on attending the Urban Food Fest, Castlefield Market and Friday Food Fight to cover some regular local events. And I've also taken some shots of touristy stuff (despite the brief) that has some interesting background story. I plan on doing a list of quirky sculptures dotted around town and also a "Guess where I am" or "Try to find me" style shots. And, obviously, throw in a few recommended food stops!

Anyway, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

We've always thought it would be good to do a photoshoot of clocks in Manchester, there are just so many and lots on iconic and interesting buildings as well as some more mundane one.... I'm sure you could spin that to kids and tourists alike. 

Whatever you end up doing I hope you post it for us all to enjoy.

Not strictly in town, but if you ever venture into Cheshire, and more specifically Nantwich, then I recommend trying out 'Street'. Its a really laid back bar/eatery that sells amazing hotdogs and has very interesting drinks (the Budda lager is great, the 'Smoked Mojito' was, erm, interesting).  Kinda has a Northern Quarter feel to it

I may of mentioned +MOJO BAR​ before, but Lisa tonight was very fantastic. Accommodating the request from pirate Gav "make me a drink you think I would like" was awesome.

The Imp has gone thru a number of changes over the last year, the most dramatic being the management change. Gone are the bands and the lively atmosphere, in are more ales and a choice of craft beers. After a period of not having any sports being shown, it appears that Sky is back in so you will get to see matches. Not a bad pint, the landlord is very proud of his cellar skills so expect that to remain. Not a bad price either at £3 a pint of lager.

Called in at 8pm on a Saturday evening and there were 3 people in the place (one of them was bar staff!). Not sure if I picked the wrong night, or its recently changed hands or something had happened earlier, but it was dead, so no atmosphere and very little to stay there for,

The last time I was in here it was called the Waldren and it was 'a bit of a hole' very much geared up to cater for a certain younger demographic, I can't believe the difference in the place now its Alberts Corner. It was fairly quiet for a Saturday afternoon, but that may of been due to the whole place being booked out for a private party (this struck me as strange how a whole pub can be taken over.. what about the other drinkers planning to visit/eat??) later that evening. The decor was really nice, the menu looked decent enough, the staff were friendly and the drinks were well priced. Would definitely go back.

Really great pub which seems to be going from strength to strength. There is always a selection of very reasonably priced guest ales from local brewers (Kooky Gold from Crewe based Offbeat Brewery was especially drinkable). The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are always friendly. The landlord there puts bands on most weekends (the usual Crewe suspects, Sway, NSS, Beardsmith etc) and it can get pretty busy, but that's only a good thing.

Brilliant place, tucked away and hidden from the idiots. Great selection of beers, some brewed locally, some from further afield, but all really good. After a few of the locally ales I switched to the cherry beer which is always nice for a change. No music, tv's, sport, bandits.. just very decent beer and good conversation. Recommended.

A little piece of Northern Quarter (Manchester) in Nantwich. Called in on a Saturday afternoon and I really liked the place. I liked its laid back feel, I liked the look and I liked the concept of street food served in a communal(ish) environment. I liked the fact that it felt different to many of the bars in Nantwich, it wasn't 'up itself' and the vibe of the place was really good. The drinks weren't too pricey, I'd definitely recommend the Budda lager and the staff were really great and very friendly We didn't eat as such, with two of us sharing a hotdog as a 'snack' which was very nice, although I'd say the pricing would put me off ordering too many items, which possibly detracts from the idea of street food being cheap and being able to try lots of things. Overall though, I enjoyed my afternoon there and will be going back.

Really nice bar, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Cracking conservatory and outside area which I can imagine makes for some great afternoons. As one of Nantwichs better bars it does attract a lot of the beautiful people (but they let me in anyway).
