Holiday in Hackney

26 Feb

I felt like it’s really time for me to get back to blogging, so here I am. I did start a blog in 2009 when I was working on the London Fairtrade Campaign, although I sadly neglected it.

It’s now 2011 in case you were wondering what year it was. I have to double check sometimes.

I’m a recent addition to Hackney and was having a giggle with some friends about the idea of ‘holidaying’ in Hackney. What would you recommend to potential holidayer in Hackney?

Here are a few ideas to start:

  • Enjoy the catwalk of Broadway market, fisheye lens camera optional
  • Pop into The Dove for a pint of Belgium beer, bring your own chair
  • Visit Hackney City Farm to cheer up the donkey, wax jacket essential
  • Have real life cash, note form preferred-unless you actually enjoy paying to withdraw YOUR own money
  • Buy a fixed gear bike ¬†sprayed disco pink
  • Take pictures of your friends in front of a real piece of graffiti
  • Grow a very tidy mustache, optional
  • Carry a cotton bag which has the word Organic on it at least once, essential
  • Lurk in vintage clothes shops on Church Street, fry – up optional
  • Eat a very large burger from a very small plate at Dalston Superstore, only on a Sunday
  • Get lost trying to find that secret party in (another) warehouse

Any contributions to this list would make me smile. Happy holidaying.
