Photo of the Month - October 2014 Finalists

Well, the dark nights are upon us and to mark this time of the year, we decided that 'Teesside at Night' would be an apt theme for this month! These are the six finalists for October's competition. The quality of photo's this month was really high and deciding on these six was no mean feat! The only thing that helped was that a lot of the images were very similar and as such cancelled each other out! The key to a guaranteed final six photo is increasingly becoming uniqueness...something that might be worth considering if you are entering in the future!

The winner will receive a £20 Amazon voucher, courtesy of our sponsors, Tomlinson Hall, Teesside's industrial pump specialists and entry into our Teesside Photo of the Year.

Meze Lounge, Middlesbrough

Meze Lounge, Middlesbrough

Going straight to the top of the Trip Advisor charts for places to eat in Teesside upon opening is no mean feat, in fact it automatically makes me wonder whether Meze Lounge is a marketing strategy or a restaurant having done just that since opening in May.

A Gazette article from June sheds some light.

It’s all biased fanfare of course, thinly disguised back scratching tenuously dressed up to a football theme. Basically Bulent Yalcin is a first generation immigrant done good, professional footballer son, coaching pedigree himself (albeit York City juniors) and an engineering background. He’s teamed up with his mate Ozgur Burgaz who he’s known “five or six years” but it’s not clear what their business or cheffing acumen is. What could possibly go wrong. But for now, whether by hook or by crook, it’s the buzz place to eat on Teesside.

Brasserie Hudson Quay, Middlesbrough

Brasserie Hudson Quay, Middlesbrough

I don't really know what it means to be included in the Michelin Guide.

I suspect it means in years to come wine sozzled foodies will sit in their libraries seeking reference the way cricket geeks pore over old Wisdens or me flicking through sun yellowed NMEs reminiscing about when Unexplained Laughter were on the Radar page.

It puts the town on the map though, as they say and the 25 of us who braved our hangovers for Sunday lunch weren't about to be intimidated by such lofty accolades.

But the thing is Brasserie is very average.
