Crystal Palace/Sydenham/Penge Chitter Chatter

Went to the Crystal Palace Overground Festival yesterday and had a lovely time. Some events on today if you are interested.

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.

Local exploration mission for July is to sample Angel, Loafe and Blue Belle in Penge.

So some of the traders in Penge has called for rebranding the High St area "Penge Village". Not sure whether to :rolleyes:, :facepalm: or :mad:.

It's going to take a bit more than that.:hmm:

How did July's pub exploring go?
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.

Not got to exploring as many pubs as I'd like to in July. Did have a nice and fairly cheap Portuguese meal in A Torre (spelling?) on Westow Street.

R.I.P.
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.

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).
