    Chitty's Valentines Day 10 pubs and 10 pints onit like a car bonnet picture thread.

    Love is in the air or is it lust??

    Let's have a day out and explore 10 off the beaten unusual pubs in the northern city of Manchester, UK.

    On the right we have the Etihad Stadium home to the finest football team in the world...

    Stopped off at this red Rag boozer that has world's biggest collection of George Best pics on the walls over three storeys, he's also on the the chimney!
    Nice little boozer with a roof terrace, funny thing is there's a boozer a few streets away exactly the same but Bluckily and called the Waldorf.
    Both are famous northern soul/Mod venues...

    Looks like you had a good time, Chitty. Pity the focus ring on your camera is buggered.

    Corbieres does a bit of Mexican scran or it is a Mexican gaff these days?

    Used to have the best jukebox in town.

    Btw, worst skyline pic of town ever.

    It's still Corbieres with the juke box, some things never change.
    Which is a good thing coz most of the city has changed beyond recognition from 20 years ago.
    Best thing the IRA did blowing it up.

    Free pizza delivery from my emporium for TD members

    Gotta have something to line your stomach for an all day session and a trip to the Etihad..
