What should you do?
No. 1. Get rid of your Glaswegian accent so we can understand you.
2. Bring lot's of money to spend on pop in some of the best drinking venues in the North-East
3. Bring a digi camera to shoot all the best birds, then have them published on the doon toon section of this website.
4. Go for a dip in the North Sea to bring you round after the night before, and sample some of the best beaches in England.
5. Eat sarnies made in stotties.
6. Sample savaloy dips
7. See how many curries you can scran in Ocean (Asian) Road.
8. Visit St. Paul's in Jarrow and see the home of the Venerable Bede, the father of English history.
9. Fish from the South pier
10. Surf on Sandhaven beach
11. Rerun the last 2 miles of the Great North run to an imaginery finishing line
12. Visit Westoe Village and look for the legendary Spodge
13. Visit the Satellite and find the creators of this site (something I must do, just to thank and congratulate them.)
14. Pick up a bargain in Shields Market ( Mondays,Fridays, and Saturdays)
15. Visit the Museum and sample the delights of a crummy Catherine Cookson film :oops:
16. Fly a kite on Cleadon Hills :D

How many daft suggestions would you like????????
I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay.

Im guessing the Brunny is a pub curly?
If so thats a freaky coincidence seeing as my local in Glasgow is the Brunswick Cellars. :lol:

Oh and cheers for all those fine suggestions curly.
Dont have the first clue how to fish or surf though but im up for most things at least once.

Ashtray, unfortunaly south shields is closed for winter, apart from that there is nothing to do there except car stealing and locking salesmen in the rear of their delivery vans, but for excitement you could visit hotrat for a bit of car chat.

And a Happy New Year to you as well Furball, and to all of the others on the strange planet that you live on. It's great that these message boards exist to allow people the opportunity to express their opinions and I fully respect and defend your rights to hold your opinions, which imho are a load of CRAP!

Do any of these clubs you chaps mention play decent funk or even some northern soul?
I really dont fancy pop/dance music to be honest.
No offence intended if thats what you lads are up for.
Failing that some pool hall action will suffice. :)
Have a cracking new year all.
