I am going to Manchester the week after next to see the arcade fire, and I want to see some of the city while I am there. I am certain that there must be some current or ex mancunians within the Moblog community who can recommend places to eat, drink and see while I am there?

yess! manchester museum is awesome, even if its just usually full of 7years old!
though saying that, i live in manchester and can't think of many places to go see and stuff, mainly coz i'm a poor student so would only recommend grubby places!
if you want fancy expensive food i'd say either deansgate or didbury which is only a short bus ride away!

Depends how long you're there...
Agree with Spongevid; lots of places to eat in Dids, though W. Dids probably better. Greens, a 'BYO wine' veggie restaurant on Lapwing Lane gets good reviews, as does the slightly pricer Lime Tree opposite - omnivorous menu, & a wine list. The Ghurka Grill on Burton Rd is one of the best curry houses in M'cr - knocks Rusholme's Curry Mile into a cocked hat (you might want to phone ahead; they're all very popular) & I have it on good authority that Graffitti Pizza, also on Burton Rd, still make the best pizza in S M'cr, bar none.

In town, there's a Japanese restaurant on Whitworth St - The New Samsi - that's worth a visit, esp for the Sunday lunchtime sushi deals.

Things to see - the Town Hall. Just if you're passing; the public areas are extraordinary flights of municiple grandeur. Barton Arcade; a tiny Victorian jewel between Deansgate & St Anne's Sq, the lovely nonsense of the Royal Exchange Theatre - if you've ever seen the kids' cartoon "Ludwig", you'll know what I mean. The Hidden Gem RC Church, the first Catholic church to be built in England after the Reformation... The John Rylands library on Deansgate (If it's open, ISTR a restoration programme being mooted).

You could try a Blue Badge Tour; the Tourist Info office on St Peter's Sq between the Town Hall & the library can organise it for you; it's an odd city with unexpected bits - see it now before the City Council & Urban Splash turn it all into Toytown...
