My first time there, but I thought it was great, although i'm slightly biased. It was doing a back to Madchester special, so dj's from my youth in the Hacienda, Graeme Park, Mike Pickering etc, were playing. And Shaun Ryder, looking very much worse for wear, made a guest appearance.
And as well Gary Sinise (TBC), apparently there was a troupe of stripping dwarves (not spotted by me so I can't confirm that one), and a 40's/50's style dress thing going on among a load of the punters, which looked pretty good.
So did I! I lived in Manchester from 1988 until 1992 when I was studying there. Have to admit, I only went to the Hac about 3 times as I wasn't a fashionable young thing and I couldn't afford it. I was more likely to have been seen knocking back 50p a shot vodka at the student union.
