Taking his doodling skills through the whole of his academic career seems to have paid off for the very talented graphic artist that is Dan Burp-Sick.

Cheese Board

Cheese Board

Since before cheese was invented man liked cheese. If it could serve as blood and travel through veins it would, that’s how good cheese wants to be.

The Hillary Step cheese board is rather good. Choose Hard, Soft and Blue Cheeses or combine Charcuterie sliced meats for extra fun.

All soured from Hickson & Black’s, Chorlton (881 2001)

Craig

Craig

Noble and just Craig is truly a jewel in the Hillary Step crown. His long face and svelte body were forged from a Russian meteor circa 12 AD.

Light of foot and some may say nimble and rhythmic he crusaded across Europe to slay injustice and serve super beer in local Manchester bars and develop web content for the needy.

A fools folly to question his grace*

He will lead the rapture and deliver unto the USS Starship Enterprise the good souls, the clean and the groovy. And therein rule for a millennia a race of interstellar egg based lifeforms.

* it’s ‘Please may I have…’ instead of the vulgar Americanised ‘Can I get…’

Rob

Rob

High overlord and master of the cheese Rob guides the Hillary Step with a deft hand and a tazer.

Some say he actually climbed the big E, found God – the Great Whey – and felt such visceral desire to sell beer and cheese in the same room it made him whoop with glee. Some say this didn’t happen. Others say nothing… Did this paramount experience inspire the choice of name for his urban boozer? It will always be a mystery – oooo.

Simmi

Simmi

A master in 4 martial arts, plumbing, stern stares and good teeth – a force to be reckoned with! Requiring diplomatic nouse to arbiter the bourgeois – proletariat struggle before her, Simmi manages the day-to-day operations at Step HQ with aplomb and a halloumi roast veg sandwichs.

Barely conscious after eating lots of chocolate cake, Simmi can run a half marathon in her head – wow.

The resident wine person (free of gout you’ll be glad to know), Simmi uses her highly trained nose to select the rather super wines on offer.

Simmi tries not to eat things with a face, like chicken or lambs or beetles and will one day own a floating gallery in Marseille (its a special yacht with diamonds on it) selling fine art.

Raised by wolves in Serbia Ian can commune with animals. Indeed he once breast fed a baby kangaroo with his own nipples.

A true Manc’ heart of cigarettes and alcohol and ordained by lord Liam himself, Ian compliments the Hillary Step with his indie swagger and leather jacket.

Ernest and innocent (you can see a meadow in his eyes) Matthew loves nothing more than great beer, iddy-biddy kitties and baggy trousers.

Sue & Angela’s Quiz

Tue 2nd October

Every 1st Tuesday of the month teams of southern Manchester intelligista do battle at infamously difficult Hillary Step quiz. Quiz master Sue delivers Angela’s monthly brainiac sermon to the masses. Some will relish factual obscurities, others reel in ignorance.

Think you can beat Angela’s knowledge of quantum physics, car parts and 1920′s boxing? Try if you dare, Mwahahaha!

(I am convinced Angela is a time travelling white witch).
