I know that Urban Outfitters sell old school Casio watches. There upstairs to the left of the store, over by the home stuff beside the till up there. I'm unsure if they have the white ones though, i know they have gold and steel. Thats the first place that came to mind. Other than that Selfridges might be worth a try.

I'm off to the Belfry on Saturday for the night with the Doris, anyone stayed there before?

Thinking of heading into Birmingham on the evening after eating, any suggestions where to go / avoid?

Got to go to Birmingham on Monday for a meeting so I'm going to have a few hours to kill before my flight back.

What's worth doing / seeing in the centre? Want to see Selfridges as it was designed by my favourite architects, but other than that what should I look out for?

Fuk un-meet San?

Just spent a bit of time trying to think of something decent to do to kill some time in birmingham but literally cannot think of anything other than a stroll round the city centre. There is a lot to look out for in birmingham but mostly it involves trying to keep possession of your wallet.

Dependent on what time your flight is, you can chill out in brindleyplace by having a couple of drinks/some food. Maybe go to the Ikon Gallery for a look around or the Sea Life centre which is near Bank restaurant.
Botanical Gardens is kinda cool if you are into all that stuff which is around Edgbaston.

In the town centre its mainly about eating & drinking if you are going to kill a couple of hours. What time you about?

Sea Life Centre in Birmigham? Isn't it the furthest point from the sea in the whole of the UK? Laughing out loud

The meeting is at 11 at the Novotel opposite the airport and will probably only take an hour or so, return flight's not 'til 5.

If its opposite the airport then you could go to the National Motorcycle museum which is a around 5 mins away from the airport if its still open.
On the way into town you could go to the cusard factory in digbeth and have a look at the studio's around their (local artists etc) or even go to the jewellry qtr in hockley. I probably will be around at some point so i'll drop a pm soon

Kinaree (Thai) by the mailbox
Raj Doot (Curry) just off Broad Street, by BMW garage near summer row
Mailbox also has a tapas, Red Peppers, Real Burger and Nando's. Pretty much a decent place to go for food without the chav element of broad street

Go to Stratford road/ Highgate for a proper curry. Or Akbars on Hagley Road which is cheap and cheerful.
Simpsons is nice if you got a bit of money.
Purnells is another good one.
Opus does seafood.
San Carlo for Italian food.
Plenty of places, depends where you are staying and what you want really.

Drop me a pm and we'll take you to some proper ghetto spots Laughing out loud
