Since I have spent the last few months getting reacquainted with Sheffield, I feel it’s only right to point out what are for me, the highlights. It’s fast becoming my new favourite place generally.
So without further ado and in no particular order, here they are:
Molly. And Dexter, respectively. Oh and @erica_jane_mp.
Made By Jonty (@madebyjonty) is a belting cafe, a really nice place (order eggs benedict, it’s awesome!).
The Rutland Arms (@rutlandarms). Cracking pub, great beers, amazing fish finger sandwiches; and the quiz is lots of fun too. Whilst we’re on the subject of pubs, I can also highly recommend The Sheffield Tap (@sheffieldtap) for Jaipur especially, and The Sheaf – Farmers Blonde being my personal favourite.
Pho68 on London Road is a splendid little place too. Really good value and excellent victuals.
Popped into a surprisingly cool little bookshop called ‘Rare and Racy’ which I can fully endorse; before nipping over to Harrison’s Cameras for some film, again a place I’d use again. If you’re into Lomography then you should also check out Kuji Shop (@teebagdesigns).
If you’re going to go to the flicks whilst on what we Mancunians refer to as the wrong side of the Pennines, it has to be the Showroom. You can take a beer in with you, need I say more? If it’s too early for a beer; Cocoa (@cocoawonderland) is really good for a brew!
There are a lot more places that deserve recognition but I simply haven’t time in this post to mention them all!
And so, back to band orientated material. With the drums provisionally done, the next step is overdubs; which we’re hoping to start in the next couple of weeks. Don’t forget you can catch Marry Another live the next two Saturdays running, we’re in Manchester at Taurus on the 5th March, then Dickens Bar in Rotherham on the 12th with the lovely Gypsy Toes (@_gypsytoes). Should be fun!
Cheerio for now.
