    :rolleyes:

    I would like to organise a meet somewhere in the the North East.

    Here are my thoughts
    • Newcastle
      There is a place called Beyond Bar, they have a mezzanine with a restaurant and other stuff.
      http://www.beyondleisureltd.com/beyond/detail.asp?Id=143
    • Durham
      No suggestions for places
    • Sunderland
      I live here so loads of places, its on the coast and has some lovely places right in the city centre or on the sea front
    • Darlington
      That's my home town, so there is many places i can also suggest there, it is also not that far from York, Leeds, ripon, Barnard castle, Yorkshire dales, and only 45 Min's from the lakes/cumbria.
    • Middlesbrough
      No suggestions, i know it OK, but not very well
    • Morpeth
      Stunning village on the edge of northumberland
      No suggestions, but i know of a few nice places.
    I think personally it should be Newcastle, as it is great for transport via train plane or Ferrari, it has a great night and restaurant scene and its fairly central. The Gate, where Beyond bar is set, has also a very secure and easy to get to car park that is 24hrs and built into the complex. The Gate also has many other bars and clubs including a cinema so if you want after the meeting you can do as you want and explore a bit. Maybe Durham is more central, as it is almost dead in the middle of the Sunderland, Newcastle and darlington triangle.

    Those are simply just suggestions, but any other ideas?

    How about end of May, beginning of June, any other offers on dates?
    Regards
    Ian

    I'm half way between Durham and Darlington and up for a meet. Durham sounds fine to me. I help run a womens networking group in the Durham area. We have often meet at the Mexican in Durham just next to the Gala theatre. Very nice food, they also have a mezzanine that they allow us to use as long as we order food.

    Whats it like now for car parking and transport link, as i thought durham was probably the better options, i just found in the past parking an absolute nightmare apart from the bishop car park, which is always full and spilling out onto the roundabout with a queue of cars.

    (But the last time i actually parked there was about 18 months ago, os i dont know if it has changed)

    And halfway between durham and darlington..... would that make you a Ferryhill billy :p

    Bishop Auckland and parking in Durham is fine on an evening. Just next to the old ice rink is a huge car park and the mexican is very close by.

    Ahh i dated a girl for 3 yrs from there (well st helens) :)

    Ahh right, i wasnt sure about the parking, as i do personally think its a much better solution than newcastle, as newcastle is a long way north from somewhere like york or even darlington, and there is very little north of newcastle being honest.
