Don't park there...

We called yesterday a work day, which meant interesting conversations with Gary and Grant and the team at Eurekster, and with Seth about his still NDA'd startup, interspersed with Indonesian for lunch (with a peanut sauce that's not Munchy Munchy standards but really quite close), dinner at Indochine (asian fusion done right; delicious flatbread, tuna, pork in lettuce, pork dumpling in truffle oil, orangle glazed belly pork, masala chkicken in spinach, spice rubbed steak and the most wonderful aioli on the rosemary roasted potatoes, plus a good wine list and some intriguing cocktails) and a parking catastrophe.

The multi-story car park on Manchester is mid way between Eurekster and the incubator, so it looked like a good choice. But when spotting the Gourmet Burger King sticker on Simon's notebook made us all hungry and we told Seth were we had parked to work out logistics for dinner he said 'you might regret that'. And as it was gone 7 and the car park closed at 6.15, we did. But it meant Simon could drink with dinner and the nice lady at the car park gave him a good deal, it wasn't that bad after all.
