Hummingbirds, Mink Bar, Middlesbrough

Having previously known little about them The Hummingbirds were a nice surprise as main support at Young Rebel Set's Christmas Town Hall show, then a poorly child was spanner to our plan to catch up with them the other month at Stockton's Ku Bar so I was itching to get down to Mink tonight.

I'm a sucker for harmonies especially when presented in gilt-edged country goodness as on offer tonight.

Starters, Middlesbrough

Written by
Starters, Middlesbrough

When you have a restaurant next to a cinema, you’ve pretty much set your stall out from the off. It’s a very specific demographic that you are aiming at, mainly representing curly fries and onion rings, and overcooked steaks with tomato sauce. As a result of this, or perhaps despite this, Starters sits in a culinary no man’s land between post-cinema Americanised food-as-fuel and poncey next-gen tapas.

For those that don’t know the drill the idea is that everything on the menu is a starter (Starters!), plus an assortment of sides and sundries so you order one for a snack, two for a larger meal and so forth plus any other bits and bobs you may or may not eat. And it’s all very palatable and comfortable in a post-cinema sort of way. The menu includes nachos and cheese, bang bang chicken, cod goujons, a jambalaya and there is a separate grill/steak menu of, presumably, standard sized portions in case all this is too fancy.

    From smacmillan13

    A film by Sarah Macmillan celebrating the Zetland Life-Boat 'The Oldest Life-Boat In The World'.

    Built in 1802 by Henry Greathead of South Shields, the Zetland Life-Boat knew service on the rugged & dangerous stretch of sea along the North-East Coast off Redcar.

    The film also pays tribute to the generations of Redcar Lifeboats & lifeboatmen who continue the brave & courageous tradition of saving lives at sea.
