Instant Party: Brick Lane

I have now had the express privilege of living in not one but two 'soon to be the most famous areas of London.' The first, in 1997, was Notting Hill and now it's Bethnal Green with it's uber-hip street Brick Lane.
Brick Lane is the bollocks! Huge and amazing clubs with great acts and top DJs every night of the week, exclusive and cute vintage clothing, new designer show rooms, at least a dozen fabulous Balti restaurants and the century's old Spitafield market.
Tonight after Brick lane fun, I took Brian and my housemate Lucy (below) on a hike and we ended up in Whitechapel in a huge dark Victorian alley. Three is never a crowd when you are in Jack The Ripper's dark stomping grounds.
When we finally saw the light of Cheshire Road everyone believed my yarn about 'not really being lost!'

I must say, it's a shame anybody must uncap a marker and screw off over textiled art. (I HAD to say something! Wouldn't be me if I didn't.)

You're having fun and it shows!

I remember eating some wicked food in Brick Lane. Lucky you with all those Indian restaurants at your fingertips.

Ah, I've got to go to Brick Lane the next time I'm in London. Damn great-looking place. If one was into live role-playing games, one could arrange a Victorian rpg there, something like a Sherlock Holmes mystery.
