29/07/2005 Last ‘Chica Chica Boom’, Rossetti, Manchester

A fantastic farewell party after nearly two and a half years at the Rossetti; lots of the regulars and my favourite people came out for the last night, including John Locke and his crew, Mark Ealand (& Sally & Nick), Hema Patel (& Jegsy), Mark, Kerry and Rachel, the Chorlton girls (they deserve some kind of loyalty card, bless ’em), Jack of course, the soon-to-be-married Alex Morris, Sarah Haughey & Andrea Csanyi and their crew, Vanessa & Rachel + 10, Jill & Anthony & Laura & Faye & Max, Les (til midnight), Tara & Belinda, Louise, Charlotte with half of Harvey Nicks, Roz Hughes & Deepa Parekh (we’re honoured…), Martin, Justine….

A very busy club, a great ending. Quit while you’re ahead; no regrets.

Highlights; the airhorns, the barstaff (Paul & Kingdom) dancing on top of the bar (Coyote Ugly style), ‘JJ Tribute’, ‘Insomnia’, ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’, and ‘White Man in Hammersmith Palais’.
