Let me start with a couple of apologies. First, sorry if this post seems rushed; I wrote a lot more earlier but a powercut took it all away. Astonishing and beautiful words, lost forever. Second, sorry for the lack of update recently; I’m trying to balance my traditional January hibernation with a number of different web projects, so I end up not going out (except for my trips to the Cadeleigh Arms to watch the football) and, thus, losing touch with what’s going on.
I did make it out on Sunday night; the wife and I, too lazy to cook, took a trip to The Grove/BRB for pizza and wine. They have a sale on at the moment, so all pizzas are £5 and all bottles of wine £10. Somehow, two pizzas and two bottles of wine came to £34, although I only realised the discrepancy when I was halfway home. Curses.
While out I noticed that the España Tapas Bar was closed. I hope this is just a Sunday‐night closure, because it’s our favourite food in Camberwell and closure would be a tragedy. Can anybody help me out by telling me it’s still open on other nights of the week? I’m fairly sure it was open last weekend.
Apparently ‘dozens’ of people turned out to support the Camberwell Tube Station campaign last Tuesday. I don’t think a tube station is the answer, and I don’t believe Camberwell will ever see it. Maybe an alternative would be trams? There used to be trams in the streets, and Peckham is set to get them, so why not Camberwell? A line to Elephant & Castle or Oval and an increase in trains through Denmark Hill… cheaper and better, right?
One of the web projects I mentioned in the first paragraph is to help out with the nascent SE5Forum — how to get people more involved, and tie it in to existing Camberwell projects (such as this blog and it’s associated wiki (which nobody uses). Could anyone who has a few minutes spare take a look at SE5Forum.org and let me know what you think of it; for example, what you expect it to do and what it actually does?
Plenty of activity inside Buddha Jazz, but still no sign of it opening. I hope they hurry up and give me an excuse to review it.
