    How did I guess! [face_laugh]
    Apparently, Tiger Tiger has a bar area that looks like the Cantina (according to my Dad) or maybe he meant that the people in there look like they're from the Cantina!!

    prepare yourselves for :eek: faces, but I've never had a pint in Newcastle before...

    so I'm open to any suggestions - apart from She-ra's Bar [face_shame_on_you]

    Well, if you're into rock, then Trillians is good- that's where I go. It just depends what you like really.....there's the meat market, oops I meant Bigg Market, but I'd avoid that like the plague (or you'll probably catch the plague!)

    I'm sure we'll find somewhere!

    Is anyone up for food at this meet? There's a nice Greek place called Simply Greek: http://www.simply-greek.co.uk/menu/menu_simply.php
    or a Spanish place: http://www.eltorero.co.uk/

    :_| I've just been informed it's my cousins wedding on the 2nd Sep - and not a cousin I like [face_frustrated]


    but family duty has to come first I suppose, so alas I can't make it

    damn, damn, damn.......[face_frustrated] [face_frustrated]

    sep 2nd seems so long away...but its the date of the Golden Orbit event in the Toon so it would be fun...

    Coupled with a night out at Trillians then? That could be quite bizarre....any gigs going on then or will it be some kind of 'rock disco'?

    Just a thought...if people want a day time thing then please say....have we ever had a FanForce N rock night?

    Just checked Trillians' site and there aren't any bands playing that night...I think Legends is open on a Sat, if you're after a bit of a boogie![face_dancing]

    She-Ra was also a "friend" of He-Man :p I am sure Alan forgives you. One day [face_laugh]

    This meet will coincide with a FF-UK: N by NW meet to Southport, the airshow to be precise, so I'll ring ya Jase to let you know when the eagle has landed :p

    If this turns into an all day/night thing, then I have space at my place if anyone wants to stay over- I can probably accommodate 5: 1 single bed, a double airbed (if 2 don't mind sharing!) and 2 on the floor....

    Other ideas:

    A Scanner Darkly is on at the Tyneside Cinema on 2nd Sept (time tbc) so if anyone fancies seeing that, then it's an option
    http://www.tynecine.org/whatson/films.php
    The cinema also has a great little restaurant

    A walk down the Quayside- visit the Baltic/Sage?

    :_| Still can't make it :(
    All sounds great tho. Looks like a fun packed day, with the proposals for all the Sci-fi shopping (still working on the Golden Orbit thing) and what you are proposing too :D Maybe next time for me.

    Who needs you Tim anyway? :p

    Seriously though...when will we be able to get you up Norf Tim? You are sure missing out! Theres so much to see and do - we have loadsa castles too! Spike Thmid was talking about taking you to this one which we thought you might like...?

    So whats the plan then - does everyone fancy an afternoon in the Toon at the shops, incorporating a visit to the Comic Fair?

    Food somewhere...then maybe a night out at Trillions or somewhere later for those with metallic tendancies?

    Just a thought...?[face_thinking]

    ps. I have no hair to sway and headbang with these days though....[face_worried]

    Yep, that sounds good to me.
    Don't worry re the headbanging- whenever I try to headbang/dance I nearly always fall over....must be getting old!
    I'll try and find out if Legends is open on a Sat night and will post when I find out, that'll give us an option of somewhere to go after Trillians.

    So there'll be no mosh pits? I'm disappointed. I view moshing as a competitive sport :(
