The pub problem

If there is going to be a South East London Tweetup (despite the supposed ban on adding the letters TW to the beginnings of words that shouldn’t have them), then it is going to be in a pub in Blackheath. Great! Easy for buglers, but seems to have left the organiser @troublebrother with a problem. All of the pubs in Blackheath have something missing… As he says:

  1. The railway, has a cider festival at the moment, for drinkers this may to place. However ifs its a nice evening not much space out side
  2. O’Neils . No
  3. Hare & Billet Lovely wood floors but can’t go outside. Not much space in side if Tweetup goes massive
  4. The Crown. Has a terrace, which can get busy in the evening.
  5. The Princess of Wales. Trumps the Crown in terrace stakes, as it potentially has whole heath. Also has shrine to Blackheath Rugby – my troubled mistress.

Personally I’d go for the Hare and Billet every time if the beer was a bit better. You can lurk outside on the heath (they will give you plastics though). It’s quieter and isn’t constantly heaving with people… Unless you really want to go to the secret weapon – The Dacre Arms! Although technically I think it’s just outside Blackheath. I agree with his O’Neil’s argument too.

Bikes, Kites, tweetups and bollards…

Bits and bobs for you – the Blackheath Bike and Kite Festival now has its own site, instead of having to navigate around the Lewisham Council’s website:  http://blackheathbikeandkite.com/

Twitter user @troublebrother is organising a meeting of South East London Twitterers…  The Bugle is a bit shy, but may make an appearance, as Blackheath won the hotly contested location battle over Greenwich!  The date still has yet to be decided, probably last week of June or beginning of July.  I’m sure you’re allowed to go even if you don’t send “stupid little messages™!  The website is http://seltwitup.wordpress.com/ You can follow the plans as they are drawn up by searching for #SELTweetup in Twitter.

And finally, the Bugle has lovingly entered this photo of the bus stop’s busted bollard into fixmystreet.com – thought you’d like to know.
