    Went to Loughborough junction arty thing - was enjoyable though it did start to rain. I use to work and live in the area so have explored the back streets alot - still -it was a good exhibition.

    The whole point about Loughborough Junction is that it is not Camberwell - it is a place between Brixton and Camberwell that feels marginalised and overshadowed by its neighbours so the exhibition is one stage of building consciousness of Loughborough Junction.

    Yeah. More "don't lump us in with that shithole Camberwell, we're better than that!"

    Talk about holes, Gala bingo is in the worst cesspit around. What a dump. My mate claims it will be the new Ministry of Sound since they are shutting down in Elephant. Want it be a laugh watchin' drug dazed clubbers exiting into urban 'vibrancy' in the wee hours.

    We tried to go to the new tapas place on Wednesday - Angels and Gypsies. Unfortunately I am unable to report back because it was absolutely rammed, and no table to be had until 9.30pm. :eek: So we went to Caravaggio instead - I love the old school waiters there. :cool:

    Gala bingo is a good. Its social & just a nice place to meet people. (I bet you have never been).
    And there are plenty of drug crazed folk in camberwell exiting the Maudsley & other unlicensed drug establishments all day long.

    That's a shit church, as far as I know. Sunday mornings on that stretch will be fun then, with the various worshippers coming and going. However, I suspect the bingo-ers might have a better idea of it's next use than your mate's speculations.

    It will be a great shame if it becomes a church or is redeveloped into private housing as that will be a loss to the Camberwell community.

    I suppose the site might be redeveloped as a supermarket - I believe Sainsburys or Tesco wanted to open one on the site of the bus garage near there about 5-10 years ago and set about buying up the freeholds of places nearby to allow a bigger site to be developed/ to allow access but TfL then changed their minds and wanted to keep it as a bus garage and also retain the option of redeveloping it as Camberwell station. Not sure what the current state of play is on that.

    The food at Caravaggio is fit,esp the gnocci.

    We tried the Silk Road the other day was suprisingly nice but not so good for veggies.

    Has anyone tried Su Thai on Coldharbour yet? Def recommend it! The tofu in red curry sauce with lime was one of the best meals out I've had in a while :)

    Silk Road is great. Thanks for the tip about Su Thai - will give it a go soon.
