Blog2004 ≫ Stoke Newington by the sea

Had a great weekend in Folkestone, only a few tiny disappointments. First, a visit to the Nostalgia Bar, a fifties theme restaurant and bar in what was The Front down Folkestone Harbour. No sign of the promised Kylie Minogue tribute, an oppressive air and a poor range of drinks meant not stopping long, so we headed up to Chambers. The football must have been a full day of drinking for some people, and while walking up the Old High Street we were harassed by drunks and had a glass thrown at us. Not very creative behaviour in the Creative Quarter, it was like being back in Stoke Newington for a few unpleasant minutes. No sign of The Quarter magazine in any of the bars, is it still going? Chambers was good, if a bit quieter than usual. It really does stand out among the crap bars in the area.

Moved a few bits of funiture into The Flat, and had lunch in Kalala (see Folkestone restaurants) and now I'm back in London, and it's still hot.
