Night Time Economy Adviser for Greater Manchester, Sacha Lord, strikes again as he has announced that he will be paying for everyone’s dinner at a chippy in Blackley, North Manchester this weekend so guests can dine for free. This follows on from Sacha Lord’s generous initiative back in August where he paid for customers’ food and drink at The Thirsty Korean restaurant in Chorlton, with hundreds claiming a free meal.
Bringing some festive cheer this weekend, the Warehouse Project and Parklife co-creator will once again pick up the entire bill for customers at one Greater Manchester eatery. On Sunday afternoon, Manchester’s night time economy advisor Sacha Lord will be paying for all the food and drink over at a chippy in Blackley.
Taking to social media this morning, Sacha Lord revealed the independent Manchester restaurant which he would be footing the bill for. The restaurant selected for his generous offer was Blackley establishment, Frankies Fish Bar, situated on Hill Lane, just off the Rochdale Road.
In a video, Sacha Lord said: “Eat as much as you want, drink as much as you want, this is on me. This coming Sunday, December 17th between 3 and 7pm I’m going to be at Frankies Fish Bar on Hill Lane in Blackley, this is on me.”
The night time economy advisor will be covering all costs regardless of how many people turn up, which we anticipate will be A LOT. Frankies Fish Bar, which has been running for over 20 years, will be open between the hours of 3pm and 7pm on Sunday 17 December, and it is simply walk-ins only.
As for the catch, there isn’t one. Explaining the reason behind the generous offer, Lord said: “It’s all about those independent hospitality businesses and giving them the footfall they really deserve. And what better place to choose than a good old traditional chippy? And everybody can get the free food and drink. Merry Christmas.”
So whether it’s a plate of cod or haddock and chips, battered sausage, pie and mushy peas or chips with curry sauce or gravy, Mancs can enjoy and help support a local independent. Better still, it’s free!
