On Wednesday night's, it's Bike Night, but on Sunday night it's Car Night at MFN (Miles From Nowhere) at Eastwood, Nottinghamshire.

Years ago, this used to be a sucessful nightclub, but rules and regulations, along with a couple of complaints, have resulted in it operating just a few days a week now. The pub does have one redeeming feature - it has a huge carpark, and overspill field.

On a Wednesday night, I have seen all of the carparks full (some 2,000+ bikes), but on Sunday 3rd, was the first car night of the year, and the whole place was packed. I thought it opened at 7pm, but we got there at around 6, and already had to park on a grass verge. In the end, it was a good spot, as it was at the entrance/exit to the rear carpark. Thereafter, once all of the curbs were full, parking was on the gravel area, and then the field. £1 per person, and there must have been 2,000 cars - most of which will have had 2 or 3 occupants.

The burger stand had a new bbq, and the burgers were really nice (according to Tim, who 'borrowed' £5 from me) and they only charged 50p for a good sized paper cup of tea. Good on them. Good food, good prices. I wish them every success for 2011.

There were many fancy cars, and a few disasters, but everyone had a great time walking around, looking at everyone else's cars. (Apart from the one's parked 1/2 mile or more away!)
