Simple N4 is 5!

Simple N4 celebrates it's 5th birthday in airline style, with the retired Mike H at the helm..

Simple N4 is 5!
Simple N4 (that’s the Northern Quarter to you and me) celebrated its 5th birthday late last month choosing a retro airline theme, which provided a few eye pleasing hostess outfits to keep the blokes chipper (or though some may have been checking out the guys outfits!).

Mike Huckerby, the gaffer of the above has had an interesting year, selling his property magazine and other Simple venues to a selection of Manchester types. He is now semi retired at the ripe old age of 30.

I arrived in time to drink some free vodka before the rush started, kindly assisted by Comedy Store’s John Locke who uses his ESP to track down any bar in town that needs an invite and gives out free drinks. We both of course bought tickets for the raffle which was in aid of cancer research UK, so our conscience was clear.

Pretty soon Lockey was more interested in his beautiful girlfriend than lil’ ol’ me. Who can blame him? So I strolled off into the main bar area and watched a few minutes of "Catch me if you can" with Leonardio DiCaprio, which was projected onto the wall to add some more airline vibes. Good film actually. I watched it until some lune from Century FM 105.4 dived onto the stage and stopped the proceedings to begin the auction.

The auction raised over £2,000 for Cancer Research UK, courtesy of a hand full of very generous individuals, spurred on and shamed by Mike H who took the stage. I whole heartedly agreed (too much nattering and not enough bidding in the ranks).

On the whole, a good evening, great generosity on the drinks front and well organised. Gordo and Howard turned up at some stage having been to the Northern Quarter Restaurant Bar and Grill and start telling heinous lies. Charity gets some wedge, we were drunk. Jog done. Hic
