It’s non-stop for Manchester!

What a weekend! Manchester witnessed a spectacular Chinese New Year celebration that saw thousands of people gather the streets, taking away a few goodies home with them, despite the cold, wintry weather. Manchester boasts a large Chinese community and they all came together to celebrate, starting with a rattling firecracker in Albert Square, followed by the traditional dragon parade and lion dancers. The Manchester city centre streets were filled with market stalls including, food, arts and crafts, workshops and a fairground. The Year of the Snake celebrations will continue on Friday 15th for a live show at the Manchester Central.

It was a great weekend for sport too, well for most anyway! We saw Manchester City lose a miserable 3-1 against Southampton and Manchester United win 2-0 against Everton. Putting the football to one side, England carried through yet another win against Ireland in the Rugby Six Nations yesterday, with a tough 12-6 win. England is yet to be defeated in the Six Nations, we wonder if they’ll claim the Grand Slam title this year? So that’s Manchester rounded up for the weekend events, now let’s see what the city has to offer this week…

Well, of course it’s Shrove Tuesday tomorrow (Pancake Day to you and me)! We’re very excited at The Mitre to flip some pancakes, sample the goods and well, eat pancakes all day long where can i buy viagra in nyc until our stomach can no longer buy cialis online mexico take another mouth-watering bite! What’s your favourite topping? You can’t beat the traditional lemon and sugar, but tomorrow, we may just go all out and spread some Nutella on them…mmmm! It’s also the week for love! Valentine’s Day is this Thursday. To some, this shares excitement, but to others it doesn’t quite have the same effect. You never know Singletons, your mystery Valentine maybe just around the corner…

The MEN Arena will be hosting Usher on Friday 15th February, followed by The Killers on Sunday 17th February. If you’re after something with a little more cheese that keeps you smiling and feet tapping, then Priscella, Queen of the Desert, the musical will be showing at the Manchester Opera House until the 23rd February. We’ve heard great reviews about this musical and hopefully we’ll get to go and watch it!

It looks like another busy week in Manchester this week! Whether you’re off to watch Usher at the MEN, going for the Chinese New Celebrations or off for a visit to the city and on the hunt for some budget hotels in Manchester, then give us a call today on 0161 820 5773. Or, if like some, you’ve completely left Valentine’s Day to the last minute, then how about a stay in a boutique, Manchester city centre hotel?
