Looking good, but for how long?

(viewed 1370 times)
Looking up at the new Palestra building, SE1. Its sharp asymmetrical shape and strips of colour stand out against the soft edges of a cloudy sky.

The question that comes to mind for me is whether it will still look good in 5 or 10 years time? If the design is good it should last. Or will it just look like another dated piece of architecture that people wish was pulled down?

Restaurant: The Table, SE1.

(viewed 2107 times)
Lunch at The Table, SE1. A restaurant opened and owned by the architects next door. They make great salads sold by weight. A touch on the pricey side but worth it for a tastey healthy lunch.

A handy lunch spot if you find yourself south of the river. Behind Tate Modern. [gMap]

The Tate had these quirky little drawings up all over the members bar. They are by a Romanian artist, he often uses marker pens in his work.

Anyone know his name?

Bill's Produce Store and cafe, Brighton - Review : They must be laughing all the way to the organic produce bank

(viewed 6091 times)
You might think I was advertising Bill's Produce Store; well if Bill's cafe wasn't overpriced, overcrowded, and pretentious then I might be. I actually enjoyed the food that was served to me in this old warehouse turned cafe; I couldn't fault the chefs. The deserts are hugely over the top affairs and lovely to look at.
It was the attitude of the company that I took offence to. Don't let Bill's organic "come join our family" marketing fool you.

After being charged extra for a spoonful of maple syrup, I wouldnt suggest
Bill's cafe to anyone. Their prices sit on the high end of the scale, so they shouldn't charge extra for items that would naturally be included in a dish. Maybe its policy to serve dishes without the required dressings and sauces so that they can charge you for them afterwards. And the best part is that they dont tell you that youre being charged for these 'extras'. You expect these tactics in chain establishments but would hope for something better from a place that brands itelf in the way that Bill's does.

[And as a side note they are funny about people taking photos in their cafe... not as inviting a welcome as one would hope for. Shame on Bill's.]

Unicycle Tube Hockey?

(viewed 1800 times)
Yes it is as it appears. These guys do play unicycle hockey, and on the tube.

Ive got into some fairly random sports myself but this one really takes the broken biscuit.

The Daily Mail is such a poor paper. Who reads this? Oh yeah a large proportion of the country.
