  1. I was reading this article on the BBC's website about the expected winter power shortages in the UK. I was just wondering if anyone knows if we actually sell any power to the UK's national grid using the undersea cable, seeing how we've got Peel sat there not doing a whole lot... Or is it just not cost effective to do so?
  2. We were in the empress a wee while ago and the buffet has gone. Food wasn'd too bad but not a stratch on the Majestic.
  3. We went about a month or so ago and asked what flavour one of the cakes was in the cabinet. The girl responded with "Oh I don't know, I've never taken that one out of the packet" It was also still frozen in the middle. Still not as bad as the newer cafe round the front.
  4. Had a look and the and and I just cannot understand why they'd want to strip all the character out of the station? Ok maybe I can understand giving it a bit of a facelift like putting down some new pavers and the art display thing... However to remove some of the original features such as the lighting on the posts would totally strip the character away.
  5. Believe it's Heath Craig formerly of Paramount City that has taken it on...
  6. Haha that's right! There was a section for each establishment about their toilets... It's been driving me crazy trying to find out what it was. I think it might have been off a manxforums post from way back. I remeber a very in depth review about the gridlocked stairs of paramount...
  7. I came across a link to a Manx website that had long been offline but was still accessible through the Internet Archive. It was basically a website listing all the island's bars and clubs with a small info section and people would write their own reviews complete with a few pictures from each establishment. The website had bars such as Jeffersons and Studebakers as still open so that should give an indication to how long the website has been down. Anyway, the reviews are pretty funny to look back on and does anyone remember the URL or the website at all? Cheers!
  8. We were in Colours this past Saturday... Us and about 6 others. Place was dead. Asked the bar maid when the refurb was happening only to be told that tonight was their last night. See the logical thing to do would be to have a closing down event, seeing as it was one of the busiest and oldest clubs, and try and squeeze the last couple of pennies out of it like Toffs http://m.iomtoday.co.im/news/isle-of-man-news/toffs-closes-this-weekend-1-1778886 No no, this is the Sefton group. No logical thought. At the very least I just wish they'd employ some people who actual know what they're doing before they end up wasting all their cash injection.
  9. Hey Puskas Bistro is a new Hungarian restaurant thats just recently opened on the Quay by The British... Was formerly the deli. Highly recommend it. The restaurant itself could do with a few more finishing touches, but could not fault the food. 3 courses worked out roughly £25 pp.
  10. Are you saying to remove the whole Thread because of the title? I can't believe how big it all got after starting that thread 3 years ago, it even got on the proper news if i remember correctly... Whilst it certainly wasn't a finer moment, I think it was needed to highlight that the problem was/is still there
  11. http://www.manxcancerhelp.org/events/crissy-rock-kitty-litter-comedy-fun-night/ Crissy Rock (I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here & Benidorm) & Kitty Litter (UK's top Drag Queen) are coming over for a special comedy night in aid of Manx Cancer Help. It takes place this Saturday (27/10/12) at the Crescent - Former Paramount City. It's all in aid of a very special charity that works with something that effects many of us in some way. Tickets are only £8 and it's sure to be a great night! Telephone 622447 for more details & tickets!
  12. Whilst I believe that smoking is incredably unhealthy, I despise the thought that the government tried to involve itself. Although I agree that the smoking ban was a good idea, i do not agree with the blanket ban. It's great that smoking has been removed from places that serve food, but I still believe smoking should have never been taken away from bars. However, when we redecorated Paramount City, the damage (& colour) done to the air-conditioners considering they were in use only 2 days a week for 15 years in unbelievable. Anyway before I go off on one, smoking in bars is something done and will only effect adults (in theory), and to enter a bar that has smoking in is that adults choice! Thats my muddled view.
  13. I liked the picnic basket... My waist however! In seriousness, it always seemed pretty busy at lunchtimes so it;s odd that it closed.
  14. Just an example - I find it odd how a large company such as H&B, sells beer at a higher price than a free house that buys it's drinks off H&B and pays it's staff more? I paid £4.05 about a year ago for a pint of Peroni in the Railway (Douglas) and nearly had a heart attack. The trade is probably in it's worst position in a long long time. Also maybe it's time to scrap the smoking ban for pubs/clubs or at least trial it...
  15. I'm not quite sure what KFC, McDonalds, M&S or any other UK chain have to do with a high police presence? f you don't like them, don't go.
