This weekend in Liverpool is full of things to do. Of course we celebrate Chinese New Year in the city, turn the volume up at our bars and clubs, enjoy the final weekend of January dining deals, and in the footie; Liverpool are away to Shewsbury Town at 5pm on Sunday, and Everton are away to Watford with kick off on Saturday at 3pm.
Here are a few things you can be doing this weekend in, and around Liverpool.

How about eating brunch dock side this weekend? Brasco Lounge at Mann Island is open 7 days a week and is the big sister of Lark Lane’s Milo Lounge. The brunch menu is packed with tasty dishes to start your day and, interesting fact, on the wall behind the bar at Brasco is a Liver bird shield that was salvaged from the Liver Building itself.
