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.

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.

A PMA is usually hard earned in my experience. :)

My N5 has died! It turned itself off and won't switch on again. Battery was at 70% so it hadn't been drained, plugging charger in sees something very odd happen. Google logo appears briefly but the phone just switches on and off, on and off.
Can't do the power and volume turn on as the phone switches off before it can happen.
Any suggestions or is it knackered?

I've come into work this morning to be faced with this in the kitchen.
It would appear that on Friday (when I was working remotely) that everyone was doing shots?!

Not entirely sure if this says footballers earn too much, or I don't earn enough. Either way, I can confirm I'm footballs loss and marketings gain.
Test how your wages stack up against a selection of some of the world’s top footballers.

Oh I completely agree +Ade S I don't begrudge anyone earning the most that they can do, whatever industry.

The soccer flop is a legendary part of the beautiful game, but one player raised the form to true art over the weekend.

OK so the bar is small and it can get pretty cramped in there, but its still a pretty decent pub. Staff were friendly, very decent pint of Tetley Gold, prices were reasonable and they had loads of TVs showing the football.

Lovely little pub. This place has had a bit of a facelift since I was last in and its a now a really smart and cosy place to call in for a pint or two. They had a good selection of ales which were really well kept, and reasonably priced too. Definitely one of the nicer places to drink in (and not a 'bar' like most of Nantwichs alternatives)

Great bar and bowling place. Visited on a Saturday afternoon and I was impressed. I like the Roxy Ballroom and this place is very much an extension of the pool/ping pong vibe the Roxy has going on, but applied to this hidden away bowling venue. The beer was good, the decor is 'industrial chic' and a good time was had by all

Had a really great Saturday afternoon celebrating my sisters birhtday. On arrival whilst we waited for the rest of the party the drinks at the bar were really good, the barman entertained the three seven year olds who were propping up the bar (at talent in itself). The meals were really good and then service pretty good too. The only gripe of the afternoon was the member of waiting staff (not sure English is her first language) who brought out the last meal to the party of 12 and said "chicken?" to my mother. She advised she was waiting on duck, so the waitress went back into the kitchen, where she waited 30 seconds then brought the same dish out and said "this is the duck". It wasn't. It was chicken (it had onions and bacon on it as per the menu), but my mother not wanting to cause a fuss, or delay the meal, accepted it. The kids meals were really great and were enjoyed, and the rest of the party really enjoyed their meals. Oh and my mother did enjoy the chicken.

Really great hotel in a brilliant location. The room I stayed in didn't have a river view but was impressive, well presented, stylish and clean. Didn't eat there as such, but had room service which was delivered quickly and the food was really nice. Staff were good, free wifi good, glass of wine on checking in nice and a free Yorkshire Posts in reception all made for a great stay. (my only minor negative is the TV's menu is complicated to navgigate around and the radio channels on it don't work)

Had the pleasure of visiting on a Saturday lunchtime. As we were hungry we opted for the upstairs 'main menu' rater than having pizza and drinks downstairs (the pizzas that I saw being brought out did look really good). As much as the rest of the menu looked amazing it was a red meat kind of day and once we'd been told about the steak of the day "Rump steak, with a beef dripping butter, chips and onion rings both cooked in dripping too".. the poor cod that was the fish special never got a look in. The rare steak was cooked to perfection the chips were great and the onion rings... oh my, they were incredible. The staff were all really clued up, attentive and friendly, the beer was great and the decor is as you'd expect - eclectic and interesting. Really enjoyable experience, well worth a return, I want to work my way thru the menu!

Great hidden away pub. Staff friendly, beer was good and would recommend for something more 'traditional'.
