    Anyone going to see The Pirates! at the Odeon? At £9 a ticket for adults, I assume the Pirates are running the joint.

    Vodka Revolution Bar for food and drink? Has Food Monster had his hand in this decision by any chance? I can only suggest Vodka Revolutions for a meal out if you enjoy being stuck to the furniture and you dont mind the background music at 400,000dB. Is it April 1st today by any chance?

    Is this a serious list or somebody's idea of a joke? I absolutely sure there are more engaging things to do in the countries second biggest county this lot ..surely. You might get a buzz from the annual bee auction .. I don't know who put this list together but your either to lazy to go and find more interesting things or your trying for Olympic gold in being boring. If this is the top ten whats the rest of the list like.
