    went to a festival there last year - it's a really lovely place - we were struggling to find a taxi at the end and the owner of the site ended up paying for our cab back to brixton, top man!

    This is the kind of stuff that gets sent to the Buzz account every day. It's all about bloody entrepreneurs, big backed independents, upmarket foodie joints playing 'street' and PR company-promoted acts of charity. Here's today's gem. A fucking floating hot tub.

    I cannot think of many things I'd like to do less that sit unclothed in a 'hot tug' in Regents Canal

    But you get to bray on the river with your chums! What a hoot! Just £220 for all your pals (plus the cost of champers) and a half grand deposit.

    Imagine that lovely Regents Canal water slopping into your champers as a boat goes past

    Or, even better, the jolly champers-fuelled hot tub accidentally driving under a well-laden and particularly juicy oozing sewage outfall pipe.

    How does Tommo merit an award for something they describe on their own website as an idea they took from the netherlands?

    Bit like: Soak LDN

    i hope this doesnt mean they get stricter on the door with searches, and the bouncers get more moody/interfering once you are inside and having a good time.

    No one at the B£ cafe is mean to buggyists. Always a very friendly vibe. Unless you're in my seat, then you can do one.

    That reminds me: I was working on a list of Brixton venues demanding full photo ID/scanning. It's fucking depressing. Off the top of my head, the Phonox, Dogstar, Prince of Wales, Electric, 414 are all insisting on full photo ID with scanning, and places like Jamm, Albert and almost every other venue asking for ID before entry (sometimes only on weekends).

    How dare you, Tommo Stuart Thomson says it it is "aiming to be the world's most unique experience"! Thanks Tommo, I may as well cross the Sistine Chapel and the Grand Canyon off the bucket list. And thanks for the pleonasm, you bell-end.

    Just a guess but I reckon if it was up to the venue owners they wouldn't do it, but the police and/or local council authority perhaps 'encourage' all late venues to check photo ID nowadays... it seems to have become the norm everywhere.

    Oh for sure: I know it was forced on to the 414 and Dogstar as a condition. Plan B/Phonox took it on themselves to start scanning IDs though. I hate having to take out ID. If you haven't got a driving licence, you've got to go around with your expensive-to-replace passport. We're turning into the US, FFS.

    The 414 were made to do it by the Police after that DJ was shot. To be fair it's probably the best way to deter the people who take weapons into clubs.

    Yeah, that's a good point. I have a driving licence with me at all times but it must be a pain if you don't have one. Passports are easy to lose, and as you say bloody expensive to replace. Plus, if you lose 'too many' of them (don't know what the threshold might be), you might even have trouble getting replacements in the future. A colleague at work lost two in relatively quick succession and apparently was told if he lost the latest replacement he might find it far more difficult to get another, for a while at least.

    I know ID cards were fiercely opposed in this country when they were proposed, but they are so much more practical than a passport for identification purposes.

    You're still stuck with that troubling, "what do they do with my personal data" conundrum with ID cards though.
