    upsidedownwalrus RIP R.I.P.

    When I went back to Hackney over the summer, I really noticed how much more white-yuppie a lot of it had become, even just over the last 4 years. Posh italian bars up on lower clapton road etc...

    Paulie Tandoori shut it you egg!

    Biddle Bros does have a nice looking coffee bar next to it, dunnit? I've not been in there but BB has it's menu up so I assume you can bring in grub.

    :confused:

    biddle brothers is alright - and they do coffee, went there for the first a few nights ago

    but posh italian bars up lower clapton road?

    i have noticed a few places opening up there which are usually signs of gentrification - there's a few organic shops now, the havana cafe is alright too, but clapton will resist gentrification for a few centuries i reckon:D

    I went past Biddle Bros the other week & it looked like it was full of tosspots. Everything I've heard about it makes it sound like a venue for wankers, so I wasn't surprised.

    For god's sake! 'Wankers' as in people with jobs drinking wine and draught lager? Possibly listening to some live music It's hardly a suits boozer now, is it?

    i still haven't been in but apparently it is not so bad as i had thought for being like a "shoreditch-by-lea". but i don't trust other people's opinions.

    i like the eclipse, bit off the beaten path though, they took over a run down pub and did it up, i keep meaning to go there more - maybe a clapton urbanites night:cool:

    the havana is near the lea bridge roundabout, sort of opposite clapton pond, it does sarnies, fry ups, decent coffee, that sort of thing, great bacon sarnies:cool:

    It's already been attempted. Not sure what happened.

    I assumed that's what you meant by 'wankers'. People have got funny ideas about people, myself included.

    I like BB and you dismissed it - why? - she says, all friendly like :)

    it was a glorious failure, i think we ended up in stokie

    See post # 40.

    It's a bar for a start. Used to be a shop & they've kept the shop front. You been to Dream Bags & Jaguar Shoes in Shoreditch? It's painful.

    I don't understand - it looked like it was full of tosspots? What do wankers look like?

    I'm not poking you with a *very* sharp stick Onket, but this attitude does annoy me. I've been in there drinking rose with a difficult haircut, plus I've been in there in my jammies while my stuff went round in the laundrette opposite and I'm not a wanker**. Or am I? What the fuck do you mean?





    **Your mileage may very.

    It's my opinion, based on what I saw & what I have heard. Why the hell are you going on about it?!
     
  26. 5t3IIa

    I'm asking how you could tell the people you saw were wankers and tosspots. And also how you define wankers and tosspots. I'd hazard that having an attitude like that is precisly what makes a wanker.

    It just seems a funny sttitude to have, and so many people have it :confused:

    Yawn.

    A particular bar/pub is never going to be for everyone, is it. I am suggesting that this place is not for me as the people there would be what I consider to be wankers & tosspots. This is based on what I have seen & heard.

    Perhaps you might consider me to be a bit of a wanker &/or tosspot & not enjoy the places I go.

    People in 'not all the same & sometimes have different opinions shocker'.

    I don't really want to argue with you as I enjoy meeting weirdos off the internet generally but for god's sake :rolleyes:

    If you don't want to argue with me then stop & try to accept that different people can have different opinions sometimes! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    To be fair...you are completely right...I go to Biddle Bros and I am a anchovy and celery eating wanker...my friends are a bunch of tosspots....your intuition is scarily spot on...:eek: Careful now, you are displaying superior powers..;)
