    Just a thought...since we're going for a meal for the birthday boys, should we book a table for wherever we're going? It may be busy as it's a Saturday......? [face_thinking]

    Well, there was talk of going for a pizza- Pizza Express was mentioned:

    http://www.pizzaexpress.co.uk/

    And there's a PE right next to GMEX (56 Peter St).......But it's up to Tim & Jase! I just think it'd be wise to book somewhere as a Sat night may be busy, especially if there are a few of us going.....

    bleh .. sorry to be not of help
    GMEX would have been like 5 to 10 mins from uni

    Tim: dutch pancakes is long closed .. there is still the chinese we had been and there is a nice taih restaurant Martina should know
    there are also nice pubs around GMEX and right behind it is the big shopping centre "great northern" (fitting huh?) and then Deansgate leads up to the city centre.
    heading toward Picadilly Gardens there is Canal Street where are many bars and many people :p
    better not going down Oxford Road beyond the train station there is nothing except Universities ... you might find a Starbucks near Oxford Road Station
    better not go into the chinese (or similar) on Oxford Road .. it's just expensive and food is horrible
    there is a Pizza Hut on Oxford Road before the rain station (right hand side when heading down toward station)

    what else do I know/ remember?

    Hi

    Just a quick note to say goodbye and that I hope to see everyone in Manchester over the weekend. I am travelling up on Thursday, ready to help set up on Friday. I hope that everyone has a great weekend.

    By the way, how hard is it to get in when paying on the day? [face_worried]

    It's not 'hard' - but you just go in a bit later - the earlier you get there, the quicker you get in when they start letting general entry in!

    Yeah I could do with knowing that too! I have another friend coming with me now too, and she can only stay for a short while, until like half 12ish, so it's better if we get in earlyish <- not a word.
