    I may not be free on Sat 20th either.
    If it'll be held south of Newc, then I should be able to take the car (and anyone else from up this end!)

    Just thought I'd bump this one up. If we don't manage to have a curry this month, just thought I'd suggest having a joint curry+cinema trip in Feb...perhaps to see Hot Fuzz??

    Count me in! At least i'll try, i have a few taken-up weekends in Feb, but I should be able to pop up - just have to be conscious of my train times back!

    Also Akbars in York (also in Leeds, Bradford and Manchester) do a really nice meal - if you fancy doing a night out in York some time.

    Thinking on - York or Leeds are both reasonably good places for a joint NE/NW meet being sort of halfway between and on main transport lines - mind you the train is getting expensive these days!

    York is nice, :) I didn't get beaten up the night i took my green fx lightsaber round town!

    The lightsaber thing was accidental...for my work summer party we went outside of town for a BBQ - i took it along, but then everyone piled into town at like 10, and there's me walking into bars with a lightsaber...woot!

    Anyways - for the sake of putting dates up there - 17/18th?

    If we did want to have Feb's curry meet with a trip to see Hot Fuzz, just a reminder that it's not released 'til 16th Feb

    Cool I think Feb would be cool, nothing major happening for me then and no A-Level exams :)

    Hot Fuzz + curry, anyone...?
    HF opens on 16th Feb, so maybe give it a week to die down?? If we're looking at a Fri or Sat, then that'd give us 23/24 Feb or 2/3 March

    Suggestions....?

    Sounds like a decent idea.

    Since we had the curry in Newcastle last time, should we look at alternate locations? Durham/Boro/elsewhere?

    Cinema venues:

    Vue ? York or Hartlepool
    Odeon- Darlo (looks pretty small), Metro Centre, Silverlink (N Shields)
    Empire- Ncle or S/land
    Cineworld- Boldon or Boro


    Metro Centre could be a good one- shopping, cinema and curry all under one roof! And it has a train station on the same line as Boro/Hartlepool...

    Darlo lacks a decent venue for curry. Plus, yes, apart from the main screen (which is a converted theatre) it is really small.

    Great Idea the Metro Centre has plenty of stuff to do, plus easier to meet up. :)
