    For Info from Golden Orbit

    Newcastle Comic Fair / Mart ? September 2nd

    University of Northumbria, Ellison Place

    Due to extended University inductions taking place in the hall we normally use, the mart on September 2nd will instead be held in a new location within the same building.

    We will be using two large rooms opposite each other on the first floor. Access to unload etc. is straight forward, from the usual main entrance there are three lifts available by the reception area. On the first floor, we are just down the main corridor.

    The new location will be well sign posted to avoid any confusion with the public entering the building.

    Writer, Alan Grant will also be attending for a signing session. Information on Alan?s work is available at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Grant

    Future dates will be back in the Rutherford Hall.

    Hey Suzi :)

    I live in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear so I know Newcastle pretty well. I'm there quite a lot when not at uni. I'll just hop off the metro and meet you at the waterstones.

    Someone please take a pic of him stage diving. Meanwhile, in Southport, I'll dive off the end of Southport pier into the sea, since the gauntlet has been thrown down*








    * Good job the pier will be closed due to the airshow. Plus, the sea never comes that far in [face_laugh]

    Oh well, there is always Bristol next year :D
    It's a little joke Nige knows all too well Dave btw, about me and the size of a hill and how far away stuff is. Well, I don't drive, so I am in a different mindset than most.

    Been thinking about where to eat tomorrow and thought I?d list a few places that I know of that make a change from Burger King etc. This is by no means me telling people where to go, just a few suggestions! I?m probably a bit biased, as some are veggie ;)

    Lunch time sort of places:

    Almonds & Raisins- a nice health food place which does veggie/vegan food, such as sarnies, pasties, soup and other dishes

    Base11- Little café which does a nice selection of paninis, wraps, bagels etc

    Trillians- rock pub that does the usual sort of pub grub

    Bob Trollops- nice old pub on the Quayside, which has an all-veggie menu (has an adjoining pub which caters for carnivores) [face_cow]

    Stateside Diner- American 50?s style diner tucked away along a side street, which serves typical diner food (now there?s a thing!)

    Evening meal:

    Rasa- restaurant on the Quayside which does South Indian cuisine. Quite unusual stuff- makes a change from vindaloo etc!

    Stowell St- In Chinatown, so plenty of Chinese/Japanese restaurants to choose from

    The Gate- has a few different bars/restaurants to choose from

    Simply Greek- erm....Greek ;)

    We'll see how things go, but just thought I'd make some suggestions
