I went to the Manchester Winter Ale Festival to celebrate Marks slowly climbing years. Being a veteran of beer festivals myself I got one of the half pint glasses instead of the usual pint. I also drank a lot slower and generally avoided the stronger beers in an effort to make it to the evening in one piece.
After Mark & Co headed off for food I wandered over to the Salisbury (via Kro where I briefly caught up with some of the guys from work). Somehow (the details are a little hazy) I ended up in Rock World with Nook, Michelle, Si,, Fluff and Anne's step brother. At a further point in the evening the guys from work caught up with me. Everything else is a little blurry.
