You may be horrified that my two lads couldn’t identify Frank Sidebottom on the graffitied walls of Newton Street.
“Best street in Manchester” says Matt. Is it ? What’s it got, Police Museum, Ezra & Gill ? I felt old.
We’d stopped in Manchester on the way home from bucolic Barrow so Matt could give James a severe cut, in Maclures Barbers (next to what will be the new GCHQ Building). James could do worse than a job in cyber security there.
Central Manchester round Albert Square is alternately busy and closed, so we head to the Northern Quarter for a late lunch. A pint of Bass and a packet of scratchings surely appeals ?
Apparently not. They wanted huge burgers in Solita. Almost as good as BrewDog.
One of our party had the house beer. The glass is a design classic.
While Matt did the cut (80 minutes !) I whiled away an hour in a Mystery Manchester Pub. An easy one for you, to end the week.
The beer was from Brightside (NBSS 3). That should help.
Dick and Dave have walked past it at least 37 times, even if they’ve never been in. That won’t.
Oh yes, and for the first time in a year, it rained in Manchester while I was there. #EndOfTimes #NoMore2020
