Anywhere I can sleep with my teddy and not feel judged!
Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
I know she reads this so best not say anything…. Hi mummy!
What would you do if you had the keys to the city for the day?
Close down McDonald’s and Burger King and KFC and all those big corporate places and let the places out to veggie companies, and open a chocolate factory of course.
What’s the most interesting discovery you’ve made in Belfast?
That would probably be a soiled pair of kegs I found lying outside Warzone one night… Nobody else was amused as I was.
Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?
Can I say Stormount? I’ll say Stormount… Imagine the party you could have!
Paul Weller, Taylor Momsen and Anthony Kiedis, in no particular order
Describe your perfect day in the city?
Breakfast in Wetherspoon’s, a dander round the shops, stopping in the Disney Store to transform in to a princess, pick up a veggie sausage roll from Nutmeg, then to Centra and get some AriZona tea, then to the offies and bomb round to a gig!
I don’t know if it counts as a restaraunt, but I love Spoon Street on the Newtownards Road! It’s a huge room filled with Frozen Yogurt, I mean, it’s bloody amazing!
Favourite bar or club
Voodoo! I adore it there. Everything is so different there to anywhere else. I also have a soft spot for Kelly’s!
Best place in Belfast to spend a fiver
Cookie Box definitely. I always grab a Love Hearts and Milkybar milkshake with popping candy bits in there and get a raisin cookie, trust me, it’s brilliant.
Earliest Belfast memory?
Well my mum used to work in the Grand Opera House, I think one of my earliest memories was probably going to the panto!
Sum up Belfast in a couple of words
Arty and noisy.
