It's open!

On a completely non-food tack, if you're ever in Newcastle, definitely go see the Sage Gateshead, which opened yesterday. We went to a 'tuning' concert last week, where they were setting the acoustics for the main hall, and it's just amazing. The interior of the building is like some glorious ocean liner, all clean lines and curves. And then you get inside the main concert hall, to discover blond wood panelling, a ceiling that moves up and down 10m, and one of the best sound systems in the country. I think they've probably removed the rules that said we had to wear blue overshoes so as not to mess up the carpets now though. Which is probably a good thing.
