Lass O' Gowrie closing down now too :(
« on: November 20, 2013, 02:52:05 PM »
When it rains, it pours.   The closure of Jabez Clegg the other day and now the Lass O' Gowrie (as of January 7th). 

It's going to be dark days ahead without a decent pub in Manchester with a good solid retro-gaming past :(

Very Sad, one of my favourite pubs. Mind you the Salisbury has a solid gaming past that might well be older many of the members on here. They were pioneers of gaming machines and had one of the early Space Wars machines:-

I never was any good, even when I was sober........

A few places are closing
Night and day cafe, Star and garter (used to have a games night, ran by someone that used to write for some games mags)

My games night has moved to FAB cafe, more details to come as im meeting with their higher ups next week
