The Best Things Come In Three's

1. Stoke Newington International Airport is difficult to locate if you don't know where you are going! (see map attached for guidance) A Warehouse space with a jumbled assortment of furniture and a make-shift stage, DIY hosting of events adds to the chilled out vibe, folk nights, performance art and spoken word. Drinks were very sympathetically priced - spirit and a mixer £2.50 and the relaxed atmosphere led to impromptu bursts of dancing from most attendees. Great fun and highly recommended, just don't tell too many people about it.

2. Tina, we salute you located on 47 King Henry's Walk, N1 4NH just at the back of Gillet Square near quite 'chavvy' pub on a quiet street near and yet still there seems to be enough stimulus to watch the world go by. The decor is currently being illustrated by artist Ruth Barret so the portraits on the wall have disappeared. Outside is a suntrap, I'm looking forward to basking there on hot sunny days, hardly any wind seems to blow.

I tasted these flapjacks, they are amazing full of gooey goodness, in fact I'm craving one now!

3. Dalston Superstore Is I'm sure the first of many Kingsland Road bars set to spring up over the coming years as Shoreditch catches up with us. Was a little disappointed at being charged £3.60 for a short and mixer to be served in a plastic cup, lame, but it's early days yet so they have time to grow. If they play their cards right these guys are going to make some serious money, although lets hope that's not all they have in mind.
