    Bloody hell.....this has come round quickly......maybe the weekend following the March night of The Smyths and Viva Morrissey both appearing live has made it seem a short month:guitar::guitar:

    Anyway, so yes, where was I......

    Yes, this coming Friday, usual blah blah blah
    OH! Tis the 10th anniversary of my first visit, oh yes, April 2000 was my first ever visit to this fine establishment. I remember going up the wooden stairs, holding onto the side thinking....'will these stairs hold all these people' and wondering if the dancefloor would hold all these people:eek:
    It took a few further visits to become fully confident that the building was indeed safe:lbf:

    It was on these very forums (or in the chat actually) that i heard about the S&G....Iain from Scotland convinced me that at the age of 37, I would not stick out like a sore thumb..... and he was right:bow:

    S&G sent me a PM saying it was drinks free all night for me in celebration of being a long and loyal custmer:thumb::cool::guitar:

    I got a free can of Coke from my local corner shop because I go there so often. Not often you meet a nice shopkeeper. I think the amount of booze and crisps and sandwiches I buy in there has helped pay for his new kitchen.

    My Ace girlfriend - for my birthday last week - booked a hotel this Friday night just so i can travel down to Manchester with her and go to the S&G - where I havent been for over 18 months. Shes not even a Morrissey fan. Christ, I'm lucky. I can't see me convincing her to spend Saturday lunchtime in a pub watching the Man Utd Chelsea game as well as visiting the S&G though...

    Hmmm, I'll have to count the cash & see if I can get down.
    It's never been the same since I moved to Manchester & didn't have to get the train anymore.

    Many an hour waiting for the 4.30am train spent I.

    Ill have to give it a miss this time, as I've got to get up quite early on Saturday morning.

    Which is a shame, as the daffodils in my garden have just come out, so I could have harvested them to bring along (and pretend that it's still 1984).

    It's been too long since a visit. Due to work-type stuff and drugs, it would be a bad idea right now, but I'm planning a visit in May...
