Some people think I’ve already had my birthday? Well last weekend was my 29 years 11 months and 3 weeks party, Saturday the 10th is my 30th! Here’s the plan:
10am at Unit 2, Shoreditch
Fancy dress ‘Protest’ Pub Crawl through London
The idea is to come as if you were protesting your own ridiculous, made-up cause, with billboards, chants, banners, and appropriate costume if needed. We’ll meet at my place and fortify ourselves for the day ahead with cups of tea and bacon butties. 10.30 head into town. The route was going to start at Big Ben, but we’ve just found out that there’s now a ‘no protest zone’ around the Houses of Parliment.
So instead we’re going to start the protest outside Buckingham Palace at 11am. Once we get moved on by the police we’ll settle in a nearby pub until 1pm, where we’ll all be protesting outside Trafalgar Square, or more likely on top of the lions. Then we’ll head down to the Thames for a nice stroll along the thames via a few fine beer emporiums. Next port of call is Cutty Sark for a bit of pirate action at about 3pm. Once we’ve had our fill of rum we’ll be at Tower Bridge by 4pm and very soon after the Tower of London. 5pm up to the City, maybe have a quick protest and a long drink by the Bank of England. Finally back up to Shoreditch. If you can’t drag your arse out of bed for the 11am start you can add me or Ant as a friend http://twitter.com/simoncook http://twitter.com/deadinsect for twitter progress updates (you’ll have to turn up mobile updates). Or call me on my phone 07974143355.
Shish on Old Street – the bar downstairs, not the restaurant
This bar is a bit too clean for my liking, but I’m teaming up with some other 10th of Feb birthday boys so I don’t have to organise anything. We can meet up with stragglers, hang out, chat and drink. Should pretty much have the place to ourselves.
Bugged Out present 2manyDJs (and a bunch of other DJs) in a warehouse on Hearn street, EC2A things will get quite gross from here on in. The little record shop just off Brick Lane have still got a few tickets left: City 16 Records, Cheshire Sreet.
Looking forward to posting a few pictures of it next week!Â
