After a quiet week in listening to the pounding rain, this coming weekend will be a huge improvement. Come out with Manchester Cool Bars on Saturday night!
We're heading to Spinningfields bar Tattu, Saturday, for some cocktails and a chat. I've tried some of their offerings and they're the best cocktails I've ever tasted. The venue itself is one of the most refined, luxurious bars you'll ever visit. Decorated with a maritime feel, you'll see rope, beams, black leather and exquisite photography of tattoo art, and hear quiet, laid-back house in the background.
The weather looks dry next weekend, a far cry from the downpour we had over the last few days. So if we decide to bar-hop we shouldn't be caught out.
Like clubbing but don't necessarily like getting pissed? New Meetup group Healthy Raving encourages not-so-late nights, not-so-drunken experiences but an emphasis on house and techno. It's what I've been looking for for some time! I'm always looking for more house music fans as the last house night I went to I was stood up and ended up going on my own. Still a decent night though.
Also arriving on Meetup is The Marketing Meetup Manchester, 'a positive and non-salesy group for the brilliant marketers of Manchester to come together, listen and learn.' I'm looking into Public Relations at the moment, but Marketing is a close relative so I'm planning on keeping an eye on them.
For the last few weeks I've been dipping into Judge Dredd the Mega Collection: America, a compilation of 2000AD's Dredd comic strips. The series of bite-size mysteries allows the reader to delve into the world of Megacity One as they please- none of the stories connect much, but they all display a dystopian, totalitarian future in which crime doesn't pay, but the violence used in retaliation always breeds more violence. But of course it does: otherwise the stories would get very dull. Some have great plots, others (like Firepower, a silly shootout) no plot. It's a mixed bag. 2000AD is one of a collection of SF brands in which people ride flying bikes but still have to fill in actual paperwork.
Entertaining, but I could never be a solid 2000AD fan.
