Manchester Grows Up

Published on June 15th 2004.


Manchester Awards the other night, at the spanking new Radisson Edwardian Hotel. What a class A night.

Arriving early awaiting our guests, the trainee restaurant critic Ekta Malhotra being half an hour late, we suddenly realised that Manchester at last has a real 5* Hotel. What a great bar; the guys serving were going into meltdown as 350 people descended on them, butcoped admirably. I know The Lowry is supposed to have done it for us, but itdoesn’t do it for me, I am afraid. You only get one chance to make a goodfirst impression and that drive up to the entrance is just depressing. TheRadisson is stunning.

This hotel is in a class of its own. we're told that Emma Jean Sturgess ofThe Metro fame gave the restaurant 4/5, praise indeed from the hard one. Thefunction room was fabulous, the service first rate, the starter was the bestI have ever had at a big ‘do’, although we're not completely sold onpoaching fillet steak and turnips, overall it was a rare treat.

Michael Huckerby, much respect from us all. The head honcho of theManchester Awards showed that he can organise an event that truly broughtManchester together. And the rest of the team.

Neil, had you dipped your head in a chip pan?

Twiglet... Bloody ‘ell, 6’4 of dynamite, you looked great, David Mallon,stop taking the pills! If you grow any more muscle you are gonna pop. Andget a sodding hair cut. Nicky Oliver, you should be ashamed of yourself for that one.Angela Brown, great hair. Don and John from the Comedy store, well on form.Kelly at Creative Spark, I have a bag of sweeties just for you. Damon BDB, Isee you have written ‘sex god’ on the card you gave us. You Sure? Lookingforward to doing the restaurant review with you. Donna from In Manchester, Iwould have said I could eat you for dessert, but it sounds a bit rude. Cath,you should have won it!! Best looking table in the gaff.

Deepa put a great after show party on at The Circle, and yes Deepa, we stilllove you! El Gourdo spent most of the time on the floor (pole axed) havingbeen hypnotised by the rather delicious Kat Mackay.... Apologies to theusual suspects....

Well done to all the winners. And well done to everyone who invested theirtime, energy and money in supporting the night when Manchester came of age.We are the best.
