      Well, as a meat eater, I can&#39;t give you any personal recommendations on where to eat, but my Brother-In-Law is a vegan and makes a special trip from &#39;round here just to eat at Terre A Terre.

      There is a good guide on this page on places to eat and where they are.

      Personally, I always end up lunching at Blind Lemon Alley and never regretted being a creature of habit.

              Right I can squeeze in a bit more about my fave town.

              Bodger are you a brightonian?

              Anyways.

              Here is a streetmap to the George. It was voted like best vege place to eat. I really rate it. Can get very busy.

              http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.....=0&amp;ar=Y

              Its on Trafalgar St. Which is the road from the station down to the &#39;level&#39;. If you walk down here you&#39;ll see a couple of record stores.

              One called &#39;recordland&#39; which is feckin horrible and has the comic book guy from the simpsons at the counter. Its crap.

              &#39;Waxfactor&#39; further down the hill can be ok. Lots of rock and then in the basement hip hip and 45&#39;s. Dug to death.

              So past waxfactor the george is just a bit further down the hill. Inbetween will be a right turn onto a pedestrianised street - Sydney St. (It will be on a saturday anways).  This is the start of the North Laines. Loads of fit shops down here. Comic stuff, gadget shit and my fave the one-fourty-five store. I rinse out the tee&#39;s from this place. Stussy, milkcrate etc etc. Loads of nice ones you never seen anywhere else.

              So on sydney street will be a wee turning called &#39;Gloucester St&#39;. This has two fine pubs - The Eagle and the Basketmakers Arms. Both are good for food if the george is rammed.

              Ok back on sydney st - On the far corner is &#39;across the tracks&#39;. They must read VV as they have Big Jim H records for £8 with &#39;breaks&#39; stickered on them. This shop is a goldmine for random stuff. I&#39;ve pulled some ridiculous uk stuff from here over the years.

              Ok then from across the tracks you take a wee right then a left down a very very narrow st called &#39;kensington gardens&#39;. This has again loads of funky and cool places. I cant remember the name of the vege place but its waikoko something. Covered in cow style paint. Great vege food and its opposite a very very nice deli.

              Then on from kensington gardens I think its Gardner St with more nice shops and other places. The komedia cafe is really nice just to chill in and have a coffee.

              Then its onto Bond St and this joins up with North St which goes up the hill to the Clock Tower. Bond St has a cool bar called &#39;ricki tiks&#39;. Great jugs of cocktails here. Miu-Miu&#39;s leather me.

              From the Clock Tower its West St which goes past all the arcades down to the seafront. If you go on the seafront here and take a right then you&#39;ll hit Gemini&#39;s.

              As for other drinking holes I&#39;m not too sure. I never did the bar thing and when I&#39;m down I never go to the new ones. Alley cats which is in a basement below the casino on East St (2mins from the palace pier) is a good bar.

              If you like Japanese food then also try Moshi Moshi. Its a really smart place with the usual conveyer but their menu is superb. The restaurant is open to the outside by sliding doors. Awesome&#33;

              Clubs wise.

              Enigma (Quantic stylee funk hiphop etc) - http://www.tru-thoughts.co.uk/?page=live/phonic.html

              Jazz Rooms - http://www.jazzbop.co.uk/jazzrooms

              Casablancas (super cheesy jazz funk. Awesome fun).

              Funky Fish club (SUPER cheesy soul/mod/funk). Its in a hotel and its like you&#39;ve walked into the wedding reception from hell. Great place to pull.

              Anyways have fun&#33;

                  Not as yet but planning to relocate soon. Always love going down there especially as it seems everyone I know has either moved there or is planning to go soon.

                    Brightons good to live in for a while. Its very insular (too insular) and you get to know everyone who floats in the record circles very quickly.

                    I had to move away just to get a pay rise. Sucked but thats life innit&#33;
