I am going to Manchester next weekend for the QPR game and the Hatton fight. These events should fill my saturday, but not sure how to spend the Friday night and Sunday, anyone got any recommendations?

I *think* that the Christmas markets have started, so I'd suggest a few Gluhweins on the friday night.

Sunday, depending on your interests - the university museum is worth a visit as is the art gallery if you're into the Pre-Raphelites.

Try Canal Street, there's this 50p on the dance floor in the Rembrandt, seems to be glued or something, I must have tried a 100 times to pick it up. Funny thing is when I do I fall asleep and I wake up with what seems to be porridge in the back of my trollies. Odd...

Starts this weekend. Town is mad with all the little huts getting ready to open.

I think an idea would be to tell us what you like doing first. We could say go eat at Rosso and then down Panacea to do some star spotting but that might be your bag. Are you doing all this alone or is the missus or mates with you?

I believe it's only 2 hours by train to London where you can find something to do away from the plebs

Unfortunately the mrs is with me as she wants to see her sisters who live there, all they seem to want to do is to go and drink. For me that goes with out saying, but would quite like to do something a bit more touristy in the day. (Plus dont want to end up getting drunk and getting in trouble for staring at her 20yo sisters impeccable rack) Christmas markets look good, will definitely visit.

I looked through through the museums and restaurants, the football museum might be mildly interesting and think i will give the Artzu gallery a go. Was just hoping someone may have some hidden gems that are worth visiting that i wouldnt find in the headlines of a guidebook.

the footy museum is now open - maybe worth a look

also MOSI - which is free...

although from your comments not sure your companions are the 'intellectual type'.

but while you are down by MOSI 2 decent pubs selling decent beer are cask and the knot both down the bottom end of deansgate

also the oasthouse half way down deansgate

also australasia bar on deansgate - bit psjh but great cocktails and you can do a bit of footballer spotting..

Of course, there's also the train station where you'll be able to see hoards of pissed off QPR fans. :D

Museum of Science and Industry was pretty good last time I went. Trying to remember pubs that were good for a quick pint when I lived there. Mr Samuel's Chop House, maybe?
