Terrible news that this week we lost one of my favourite DJs, Eric Morillo. Saw this guy DJ in so many places over the years :(
Got back at the weekend and of course it was the bank holiday. Went to Freight Island for the HomoElectric afternoon on the Monday night. Normally these are quite hectic parties but now COVID friendly.
Can’t wait to start my new role at MuscleFood, there is going to be an amazing team of people and looking forward to meeting them all.
Having lived in the city of Manchester for the past 9 months I have just about covered all the seasons of the city. Looking back to the winter, I was pretty settled in my new job and still exploring the different areas. I feel now, having the knowledge of Manchester to the level I do now that I am certainly better at knowing where to go, the quickest routes and you know what… people ask me for directions and I even know where to point them. Summers here!![caption id="attachment_8419" align="aligncenter" width="506"] Chilling in Cathedral Gardens[/caption]
I was just thinking the other day how much I have enjoyed the city since I have been living here. There are so many lovely places, restaurants, bars, and places to chill out. What has made it even better is the fact that people are so helpful and in great spirit. One of my favourite places in the sun is down at Castlefield, one of the best places in the sun and becoming increasingly surrounded by the high rise apartments going up at the south of the city. People seem to flock here, with it being right along the canals it makes it a great place to go for a drink or chill out, its a complete sun trap.[caption id="attachment_8421" align="aligncenter" width="900"] Castlefield in the sun[/caption] [caption id="attachment_8418" align="aligncenter" width="900"] Celebrating my 31st[/caption]
I have been socialising with my work colleagues on some of our social nights. We went to Deansgate for a night at Roxy’s ballroom, exactly like the name, its a room full of ball games, followed by a visit to Revolution de Cuba, an underground bar and club quite close to the Albert Hall. Deansgate is a big street right in the heart of the city that links the northern part of the centre to the southern part, right up against the Hilton Hotel. It's pretty closely nestled to Spinningfields, another great spot in the sun. There is a place called Oast House, pretty much a small pub smack bang in the middle of the cities business district. There is often a band on or a solo singer, they also have an outside BBQ too.[caption id="attachment_8420" align="aligncenter" width="675"] Kylie is arriving soon[/caption]
Coming up soon is Manchester’s International’s Festival, which I think the logo looks like MILF haha, and also the food festival. This will be taking place in the Albert Square, pretty close to where I work. There are loads of events on their website and all of them are free to attend. There are even late night DJ sets at the weekends including a Homoelectric, which I’m yet to experience.
