    I might meet people for brekie (well elevensies around eleven) if it's central.

    Ashton Court to Parkway? Forget it! About 10 miles and a pretty convoluted treck across the city. From Temple Meads station it would be about 3 miles - still a bastard of a hike. Get a cab.

    ...or a bus from temple meads into the centre and another bus out (that's what I'm planning anyways)

    Great in principle :) but I don't really know the cafes in the centre, I'll be relying on my hosts, who I don't see til tonight!

    Hopefully see you at the fest though ... :)

    And others in the Bell at 9 tonight! :) :D

    It should be easy enough to meet you william on the SUNDAY morning for the brekkie - Im confused now. I did specify Sunday because my friends that were going to come to AC and now can't stay suggested going for the brekkie Sunday morning before they leave. Are you guys going for a brekkie Saturday? :confused:

    Plenty peeps about making there way up...I'm coming from the opposite end of town or I'd be more helpful! :rolleyes:

  12. gentlegreen

    gentlegreen Ezekiel 23:20

    That would suit me too ...

    It's a bit of a ritual for me making my own way to the festival on the first day at least .....

    Actuellement ..... I believe many kinds of breakfast are available at the site :)
  13. William of Walworth

    William of Walworth Festographer

    That sounds alright,we can talk about it :)

    I will do a brekkie on Saturday, but could easily do a Sunday one as well :)

    Heading for the coach very soon now ...

    Really hoping to see the sparkly one (and the fizzy one ;) ) at some point this weekend, even though I prolly won't get to AC.

    I don't know anywhere in the centre that does good veggies breakies. I'm not veggie anymore but I've had a couple in the Prom and they're pretty good, it's about 20-25mins from the centre - it'll build up your appetitie though! :)
  21. nellyphant

    How about the Cuban place (I can't remember the name) along Welshback, that does quite good brekkies if I remember. I haven't been there since last summer and you can sit outside.

    There's also the Muddock Cafe - that's pretty good for all types of brekkies and you get a nice view over the riverside - very cool early in the morning watching the city spring into life!

    Both are reletively near to each other so at least you'd have options if one was busy or the menu wasn't to your liking.

    Hope this helps :D

    Waves at Hammy, coz she'll likely be back to see it :D

    How's it going??

    If you need to get to Bristol Parkway, I'd suggest walking from Ashton Court to the bottom of Stokes Croft (30-40mins walk tops) and catching a bus on the left hand side of the road up to Parkway (yep 73A). It should take about 30mins but they are quite frequent (approx. every 10-15mins). Alternitively a taxi may be a speedier escape (I've got one for about £10 before, by the time you've added up seprate train/bus fares and taking into account that Bristol buses are SHITE, it may be cheaper and less hassle too!)

    Good luck and hopefully see you there!:D

    3:00 Pie Minister? Nope. 3:30? Nope. 5? 7? 9? Nope. :mad: Where was everyone? :(

    We'll be wandering around tomorrow, and will check pie minister every now and then. 3 oclock?
  25. geminisnake

    geminisnake a complex mass of conflicting ideas

    If they were where they were last year, and the pie stall is in roughly the same place try standing back to pie stall and head at roughly 45degree angle left, can't remember distance, do you know what anyone looks like? That'd help. They were up from the main orange stage last year. Near the man selling helium balloons.
  26. Crispy

    Crispy Fond of drink and industry

    Yeah, we know people - just a lack of phone numbers! In fact, if anyone's reading this who'll be around tomorrow, could you PM me or sparrow with a phone number so we can meet up? Ta :)
