Ideal Home Christmas..

What more can you ask for on a Sunday than to have a mosey round?  Well that’s exactly what I did today at the Ideal Home show at Event City.  After fighting for a space at the Traffic Centre we arrived to a winter wonderland with an array of food, house bits and randomness.  I loved it!

Southern 11 relaunch…

Southern 11 is an American style easy going restaurant in the Spinningfields area of Manchester City Centre.  If I remember rightly it was one of the first American style eateries before they exploded like Gremlins around town.

After a couple of years I had the pleasure of going to the relaunch of the new Southern 11.

Upon entering the restaurant I had a quick look round to access what had been changed. Gone is the stainless steel and long tables (which I personally liked) it seems to be a warmer almost a shut down fairground theme.  If you get what I mean?!

Taken from their Facebook page as it was so busy on the night.

Probably my favourite thing about the relaunch was the big bear, I wanted to take him home!

Drinks were flowing freely and mini samples were given out.  Unfortunately I didn’t get to eat a slider but the tacos, corn bread and chicken wings were pretty tasty.
