Ugh, McDonalds on Rye Lane is applying to extend its opening hours to 5am on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Good times. Sick of going to camberwell mcdonalds.
Next weekend: Peckham Salvage Yard free weekend vintage market returns on 8th/9th July
ah fuck, another one I have failed to sort out a stall in time for
oh hang on, I may be up for this having just spoken to them
Also, someone ram raided Balfes Bikes on East Dulwich road last night and stole 4 bromptons- yes, ram raiding a bike shop
That's grim, but in a weird sort of way I'm very impressed that they managed to get a car in there. Hope they catch the scumbags though.
scooters apparently - wrenched the door down and scarpered with Bromptons - they are not stupid- they know what a Brompton is worth.

South London’s largest weekend vintage market at Peckham Salvage Yard returns on 9th/10th Sept
Peckham station is open today/ weekend - lots of decent pics of the old peckham and some plans for the waiting room - which is a stunning location
Peckham Streets - Peckham Festival
worth half an hour of your life easy
It looks like Made of Dough pizzeria has opened up on the Bellendend Road a few weeks ago. Their, what appears to be another case of cultural appropriation, Wind Your Batty Up pizza was profiled as a must try in Time Out yesterday.
A nice pic of peckhams once famous Jones and Higgins. It was a great place for messing around in the toy department after school.
Development of the car park shelved for the time being. Good news for the cinema, Franks and hipsters
These are all the police stations that are set to close in London
Pecknarm Cop shop set to close
Also, someone mentioned this earlier to me and I am not sure
you know there is a bar under the arches- Peckham springs- I though it was a lazy homage to the Trotters bottled water episode. Have just been told that if you Claphamise "Peckham" , so where Clapham become C'larm, Peckham becomes P'arm - then it sound like Palm springs
Hmmm, who would have thought that hipsters have so many levels of Irony going on
I'm spending the weekend in peckham. No idea about what to do apart from a party at rye wax on Friday. Exciting times!
What do you want to do?
Take and away Afghan food shack near the juice bar if you eat meat
Lamb Kebab Wrap at Asian Takeaway, Peckham
Drinking? Eating ? Cheapest cinema in London?
Stuff we take our friends to do when they visit:
Peckham staples would be Bar Story on Blenheim Grove, by the station, the cinema (5 quid, all day, every day!), there's an actual Nag's Head Pub at the top of Rye Lane towards the park. Great Dim Sum from Lovely House (been there forever, afaict.) Montpelier is probably the best pub left round Peckham Rye way. Clubbing in Bussey Building or Canavans Pool Club (yes, really.). Fried chicken from Morley's across the road after. Sunday breakfast in Anderson's (Crossroads cafe, the proper caff, is still shut on a Sunday I think).
Newer stuff that's also fun - Four Quarters arcade bar, (bit wanky, but the machines are fun, and they have Mariokart) John The Unicorn pub a few doors down looks like it's going to be incredibly wanky, but is actually quite laid back and surprisingly inexpensive. Brick Brewery by the station is good and has street foody type stuff in. Begging Bowl has great Thai food, but is pricey. The Coal Room restaurant at the station is v good, and new, run I believe, by the same people that run Spike Roastery, which is a good local social enterprise co that helps homeless people.
Sad news: the Gowlett is closing
Yeah, very grim. IComing Up Next: Peckham's Gentrification
Thought we'd had that conversation in here,but was in t'other thread.
