    Museum of Liverpool Life

    All these venues, the National Museums Liverpool group, are FREE ADMISSION.

    Food
    If we need to eat (lunch or evening meal even) Liverpool has plenty of places. Note we may need to suit to certain needs - I am not fussy what type of food, but I am vegetarian ;)

    Wetherspoons - http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/food/
    Kimos on Mount Pleasant?
    Wetherspoons, The Welkin on Whitechapel?

    Anything I missed out?

    Sorry Vez :( But'll be there in spirit, whilst you lot are on the spirits ;) :D

    Oooooooooooo Jase! :cool: :D Get your trackies on and come on down "luv" ;) :D (notice to everyone, that was a Cilla impression, not a pass at him :p I hear Yorkshire men prefer sheep anyways, so I am quite safe *runs* :p )

    So we have four, plus maybe Dickie (I best ping his msn to gently remind him).

    Anyone else?

    And lol, I was hoping someone would see something up there in the list that stands out for where to see culturally!

    Ok Docks area (Tate, Beatles experience) or William Brown Street (Walker AG, Liverpool Museum)? Post your vote below :)

    I'd say Brown Street 'cos of the Liverpool musuem, it may have something for everyone, but I have been to all the places in the list.

    The map was down there for some time after they stoped doing that segment of the show, but I can't remember seeing it last time I was down at the docks.
    Though I can say I did wacth Fred doing the weather once when I went to the docks on a school trip years ago :p

    As a massive Liverpool fan , avoid the pubs on Saturday evening for something to eat . We will be beating Chelski live on BBC in the FA Cup Semi-Final and every pub will be rammed . The game kicks off at 5:15 and its thirsty work watching the boys .

    Less than a week to go :)
    Caroline, you back from your holidays yet? :cool:
    Jase, what time are you arriving, then we can plan what time to meet the others. That's up to you Cozmic, since I have a feeling Jase and I are going to be in Liverpool for around 9am lol. I'll PM you soonish Cozmic with my moby details too. Just got to do a banner for regional for St George's Day, which is this Sunday coming, I am going to try and get some English flag on the meet day, so we can take it with the flag lol, I have a feeling the market near HMV will have one.

    Any other late comers to this meet?
    I think Dickie is out due to prior commitments, will ping him to make sure.

    Glass_Onion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cool: Where have you been????!!!!!
    You are more than welcome to come along dude!

    So now we have the Three Musketeerios and Dogtanian! The square is complete! Right, I have to do some PS work tonight, but I'll PM you and Cozmic tomorrow with my mobile no.
    Coz - I'll be meeting Jase in Lime Street at the time above (9.25am), it's up to you what time u meet up (I know you said after 10am) - where's best to wait for you? We can do Liverpool Museum, say for an hour or so then head centerwards if people want to see other venues, and the two FP shops.

    I've just been a moody git basically. Nothing interesting.

    I'll check back tomorrow for the times and whatnot. 9.25 is to early for me so I'll just pop down nearer that 10 region.
