Discussion in 'Brixton' started by editor, Aug 1, 2012.
The official August thread, following on from July 2012.
The Portugese Deli is closed for August for their summer holidays
I guess that means the Phoenix will be off on their hols soon as well.
Speaking of the Phoenix, I was in there the other day with a mate who used to live in Brixton years ago. He worked in the library and used to go to the Phoenix regularly. We reckon he last went in there about 8 years, maybe longer. They can still remember his order. Legends.
Just to bring folks up to date:
Holiday Inn is coming to Brixton - http://www.urban75.net/forums/threads/hefty-holiday-inn-coming-to-central-brixton.297101/
Bollocks. Where am I going to get my reasonably priced olives from?
They are indeed. I go there last least once a week and the cup of tea (milk, no sugar) lands on my table before a word is uttered.
mural repair on Street view - great shots!!
I always imagined you as a one sugar man, like all sensible tea drinkers.
I'm sweet enough as I am.
that's fighting talk that is......
seems to be opposite the albert but i can't work out what properties it proposes to demolish...
Is there anywhere in Brixton I can buy a sprung mattress for a single bed for around £80? I am trying to avoid going to Ikea.
The bed shop near Streatham Odeon?
Aren't Beaumont Beds expensive?
Don't know, haven't used them. But they are there, and AFAIK they do sell some of the mattresses separately.
Or there's Morleys. Again, no idea about the current price range there.
Isn't there a place north of the railway bridge between the bridge and Stockwell Road that sells beds and stuff? Advertises "discounts for landlords" if I remember correctly.
Has the one on Brixton Hill pop the White Horse closed?
There's a bloke outside the post office selling them out of the back of a van. I shit you not
Is it not what was "The Real Mckoy"? I'm off tomorrow so will have a nose at property numbers.
Really He was flogging them on Electric Avenue a couple of weeks ago but I think he may have been moved on and found a more secluded position
Serious answer - Argos?
The Ritzy's outdoor drinking area was busy today. With the cheapo rates they're paying, they must be raking it in!
yes It is the site where 'The Real Mckoy' was
I think that secluded position must be outside of the ice skating rink! Irish blokes right?
Ah, normally selling rugs, right? I have an extremely funny story posted on here about one of those lads...back in a minute.
this week, Lidl has them for £69. And yes, they are sprung.
There is a bed shop just down from The Beehive, past the Halifax but before the funeral place.
Yes, Irish. But they were actually at the end of Electric Ave and Brixton Road before they moved to outside of the Post Office. They may well have been at the Ice Rink but I've not seen them there.
(((Futon Shop, Loughborough Junction)))
What, in that small Lidl on Acre Lane?
Actually just had a look at Argos and they are reasonable and do free delivery, sorted.
The Village was packed again today. Many cameras a-clicking.
We went to Federation for the first time in a while: since Granville Arcade has got so busy it's been hard to get a seat so we've been hitting Caffe Nero for the Bad Boy cakes. The coffee isn't too bad there either, tbh. Miles better than Starbucks and Costa, although that's not saying a lot.
What exactly is the problem with people taking photos? As a photographer yourself, it's a bit odd.
Separate names with a comma.
