    So Essex Rd's closed for the next while as they're working on that water main. Just crawled along Upper Street on a 38, chaos at Highbury Corner due to the cycle superhighway works and we're now randomly going round Canonbury.

    No announcements about being on diversion either. If I'd known about this, I'd have walked as it'd have been quicker. From Shaftesbury Avenue. FFS.

    Is it closed for a while then :(:mad:
    I found out by chance as I had to get to a Solicitors near Essex Rd station from Angel station after work on Wednesday and was going to get a bus, got off in Upper St and cut through Canonbury in the end.

    Plans unveiled to turn Savoy Cinema into Hackney Arts Centre

    I went on one of the 'tours' to see around this yesterday when Epic was hosting the Flea Market.
    Very interesting - the picture shows what was the circle of the cinema, a false ceiling was put over the ground floor to make it an events room some years ago.
    Great to see that the 1930's decor has survived.

    The acid attacks last week ! Club in London Fields - I'm guessing the club is near E5 Bakehouse? . Main culprit (b/f of a reality tv star) had been nicked - 2 people lost sight in one eye - nasty business.

    Yes, it's awful, can't imagine why anyone would be so stupid as to do something like that in a packed club.
    I've not heard of the club before, it looks like it was some sort of commercial premises beforehand. I didn't know the street name but I think it's one of those side roads that run between Mare Street and London Fields - up by the bus garage somewhere?

    Keeps being reported as Dalston but it's in one of those ex light industrial units between LF station and Mare St.

    Big diversion from central London, buses on normal route to central London. It's a diabolical liberty tho

    Guess there's not much to be done apart from tell people it's on diversion. V annoying that it's coinciding with the works at Highbury Corner though.

    New cafe in Upper Clapton , The Dialogue :hmm: 2 doors from Sodo on the high street. A strange place called The Residence used to be there ,that was a cafe/interiors place which failed . This is more of a brunchy place ,full of young folk :mad: but staff were lovely ,bit hipsterish but food was fine.

    I am loving The Mermaid on Cricketfield Road - replaced Verden which replaced The Cricketers. It's expensive - full of young folk, but the ale is fantastic. :cool:

    Clapton is clearly outdoing Stoke Newington for fancyness these days :D

    i'd be more up for donating if they'd been anything less than complete arses last time there was an antifa gig there

    Was that a recent thing? They were very tolerant in the 90s iirc.

    about 8 years, so yes

    in the 90s they had a very good range of vodka

    Well I guess the general climate of Clapton has changed a fair bit. They still have the odd thing on that looks quite good, but I've not been for a while...
