Dogford. [Sep. 18th, 2008|11:22 pm]
Kake
[Tags|]

Still very behind on LiveJournal.

I asked uon where I should explore tomorrow, and when I turned down Catford he said I should find a Dogford and go there.

I gathered some preliminary suggestions on IRC, and I now turn to LiveJournal to make the final decision. You can choose as many options as you like, but I'm only going to go to one of them, so ticking all the boxes is equivalent to ticking none of them. Isle of Dogs is intentionally omitted as I've been there quite a lot recently.

Please also feel free to suggest things to do in any or all of these locales. I like lunch, dinner, pubs, bookshops, and green stuff.

Edited to add: This is actually happening on Sunday or next week instead, so you can still vote. I'll close the poll tomorrow morning.

This poll is closed.

Where should Kake explore tomorrow (Friday)?

Anything having to do with sheep is automatically good, right?

Barking is a dump (or was the last time I was there...er, about 30+ years ago).
There's nothing to do around the Dog's Home...although there should be, dammit!
Don't know nuffink about Bayswater.
New Cross (see Barking).
A trip to Sheperd's Bush would require more planning, 'n'

Hounds-low is easily the funniest! 'ence my vote.

Battersea Park is fairly near the Dog's Home, isn't it? (My views of distance are skewed by cycling, mind.)

If my memory serves (and it rarely does) it is a bit of a walk...but then I suppose that nou is looking for a decent walk...

Bayswater is where oi did hear a bunch of the shops from Oriental City were moving to hence my vote, I've never been there or know ifthis is true mind, but that's why I put a vote for it.

There's a few similar shops around there, but I'd have thought it was a bit of an expensive area for them to move to. There is a reasonably sized chinesey supermarket there called oriental city, though - coincidence ?

The Oriental City supermarket has moved to the south end of Queensway - I walked past the other day but didn't go in as it was late and I was tired.

And if battersea wins, come distract me from holiday-packing stuff ? We can get lunch or snackage or something ?

It's probably too late now, but Bayswater to Sheperd's Bush via Notting Hill is a reasonable walk to do, so you could feasibly do both of those.

It's not too late, since the blister I'd hoped would be healed by this morning actually isn't, so this is happening either on Sunday or next week instead. Also there is no actual winner yet, so I'll let it run for a bit longer.

Hounds-low is clearly the best name, but the reality is quite grim.

If you're planning to visit Shepherd's Bush, you might want to wait until the new London Overground station is open (as part of the big new shopping centre). I haven't seen any official announcements of the specific date (posters just say "Autumn 2008"), but I overheard some passengers saying that it will be 28th September.
