    Some sort of ladeeez fashion clothing nonsense going on at the Dogstar on Thurs 1st September, I believe. You might know about it already... There's a website I think.

    I heard that last night. Sounded like it was coming from Tudor Close. Maybe the residents were having a party

    They have pretty much doubled the number of bike racks outside Brixton Rec (the first floor bit directly outside the entrance doors). This is a good thing.

    Should I write and tell my parents? :D

    The danger of the the Albert is it is like a (rough Wire Quote) war. Easy to get into but impossible to leave :D

    I run out into the book shop and got a Hunter S Thompson book for my nephew who has just been to Vegas :cool:

    You still in The Albert now or have you made a permanent break for freedom? I'm off work and was just debating whether to pop in for a pint...

    Don't all rush at once now.... Short notice ...

    The review for Botallack at the Half Moon is so good in Time Out I'm planning to see it before the run ends on Sat.

    Probably pop in there about 7.00 tomorrow to pick up a ticket. If anyone fanices a little local theatre pipe up - it's £8-10, happy to sort the cash out on the day.

    Went there today and I've got to say that it's been done well. The garden is especially improved.

    What have they done to the garden then? I always thought it was quite nice as it was. Might have to pop along for a nosey soon.

    Sections of covered seating and an outside bar (not quite yet up and running though).

    I really love the Trinity Arms but I was in last weekend and I think it is absolutely horrible. Standard soulless gastro pub. It made me very sad.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    "gastro" as in Brake Bros?

    Did you go, was it good?

    No one was there to sell tickets! Best I understand is you turn up after 7.45 and buy them then (and by which time the football had started on both Wed and Thurs).

    Tomorrow, def tomorrow..... The review is great though...

    Are you talking about the pub on trinity square?
     
  27. Onket

    Onket Je suis [CONTENT REMOVED]

    Yes, and I disagree that it's a souless gastro pub now. For a re-fit, and going on what I'd had described to me, I think they've done a pretty good job.

    I think I am addicted to Federation coffee. I don't really feel energetic until I've had one and have started going in every second day. I never realised how strong they are, they are very good.
