  1. When does the promotion finish? Sounds interesting...
  2. Well Tramlines 2019 was a fantastic event. Apart from the downpour on Friday, the weather was great, there was hardly any trouble. The diverse line up was tremendous, something for everybody, sometimes it was hard to decide who to go and see as some bands clashed. The food offer was good and the choice of beers fantastic for such an event. Holding the event in Hillsborough Park is so much better than moving around different locations in the city to see bands. My personal favourites were, in no particular order, Manic Street Preachers, Courteeners, The Reytons, Peter Hook, Tom Grennan. Miles Kane, Johnny Marr and The Rev. Everyone who I went with had a wonderful time. We have all bought tickets for next years event and look forward to it. Tramlines really is incredible vfm. The organisers deserve lots of credit for this event and helping to raise the profile of Sheffield.
  3. I've just been trying to say that sentence.... difficult after a couple of beers...
  4. Three Merry Lads at Lodge Moor, not quite sure if they have a private hire room though.
  5. Didn't the staff from this restaurant leave and set up Top Thai on London Road? The food there was wonderful, but sadly it didn't last too long.
  6. IMO, Balti King is one of the worst places to go for a curry in Sheffield. The food, the ambiance, the staff and the toilet facilities are just terrible. Only my opinion, I know some people who think it's great... Looking forward to trying out Mowgli, Ecclesall Road on Monday.
  7. Just had 2 men knock on our door asking if we were Polish. I replied no. They then asked if any of our neighbours were Polish. Again, I responded no and they were polite and left. I thought this was a little strange and watched them leave through the window. They didn't knock on any other doors, just walked to the end of the road. Does anyone have any similar experiences? Maybe it's innocent, it just seems a little weird...
  8. Did my first ever half marathon in 2h 16m 51s, absolutely delighted...
  9. If you were interested in good quality Neopolitan pizza then you would definitely know about the ingredients. The specific flour, particular tomatoes, and top quality cheese are all so important. As is the method of cooking in a very high temperature oven. Take a trip to Naples and eat pizza at a few places. Then you'll appreciate the best pizza in the world and the importance of quality ingredients and their provenance.
  10. This place is definitely worth a visit. Lovely, Neopolitan style pizza served by friendly staff. Closes around 9.30pm though.
  11. JohnnyBoy is reyt, Sports Bar and gym. Don't get how the gym will work with the lack of parking. Apparently the new owners signed up prospective tenants before buying the building. Excellent bit of business...
  12. Looks like this place will be opening as a branch of Mowgli, the indian street food chain. The menu looks interesting, hope they can stay open longer than the Cats PJ's. https://www.mowglistreetfood.com/
  13. Just Trade Windows on Capel Street... Ive used loads of times. https://www.justtradewindows.co.uk/
  14. Just driven past the newly refurbed Champs on Ecclesall Road. You can see it from miles away. All the external building is illuminated really bright. How they got that past planning is beyond me. I certainly wouldn't be happy if I lived opposite or near the monstrosity.
  15. I'd quite like to live on Fargate above the shops, down towards Coles corner would be perfect.
  16. The initial line up has now been announced. Lots of good bands to see. Great value festival, and very positive for Sheffield. Plenty of coverage on Look North which quite surprised me... We just need the fabulous weather like last time...
  17. We had one through the door a couple of weeks ago in Greystones. The writer of the letter was offering to rent the house for a few months with a view to purchasing it off us at market value a few months down the line. I asked an estate agent about it, his opinion was that he'd heard of similar things before, however he did seem a bit puzzled about the rental element of the letter. Usually they are when people want to relocate due to a certain school.
  18. This on the Guardian website... Tottenham Ladies player says opponent made monkey noises at her https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jan/06/tottenham-hotspur-ladies-renee-hector-defender-racial-abuse-football?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard Also... https://www.sufc.co.uk/women/news/2019/january/statement/
  19. SF doesn't operate like that at all. Just depends how many people are interested in what your topic is. Sometimes a post/thread will get lots of views and no responses at all. Sometimes the thread runs forever and a day with lots of comments. I really like the Union at Nether Edge, a proper old fashioned pub and nice clientele.
  20. Went in Saturday evening at 8.45pm. Had quite a few mums/dads coming in with prams and young children. Felt this was innappropriate at this time of day. Maybe up to 7pm is OK, but not later. Had a pint of Abbeydale Serenity, which was quite nice but none of the other beers appealed. Nice enough place but there are more appealing watering holes in Heeley.
  21. Loads to pick from here. I'm helping organise the one on Manor Fields... https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/your-complete-guide-to-bonfire-night-and-fireworks-displays-in-sheffield-2018-1-9426992
  22. I was looking forward to trying this place but this administration puts me off... I've been on the receiving end of non-payment from an expanding, ill managed business.
  23. Yes, the Sausage Cottage was a hot dog stand which opened on match days. Parked near the front of the vegan deli.
