long overdue ban
We missed all the stuff in the park but had a lovely evening that started with jazz and ale in the G&G, went on to the Vietnamese place opposite the White Hart and ended with many strong drinks in Casa Cuba.
A bit more yeah. Seems the monthly street market on Maple Rd has been a success, so that's good. Now if only the Alexandra would reopen as a good pub it'd get positively vibrant down 'ere.It's going to take a bit more than that.
How did July's pub exploring go?
Admittedly I've not gone in yet, but I've only heard good things about it. OH has been to Loafe and Blue Belle and had great things to say about both of them. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Alexandra, apparently there's an application to classify it as a Community-Based Asset (I think that's the right term) and keep it as a proper community pub/activity centre. Maybe Late Knights Brewery will take it on? On the market for something like 380k, which sounds bloody cheap (if the structure is sound).BTW- Angel looks always empty and sorry for itself. I went to it a few times under its old names and had decent enough food. Been looking for an excuse to go again but it just never looks welcoming.
