Battersea Beer Festival

This is a bit late and the event is no longer on (there's always next year), but that's not really the point.  The fact that its the Battersea Beer Festival is sort of irrelevant, it's great because CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) are amazing.  They put on loads of events like this all around the country all through the year.  The format is more or less the same everywhere: hundreds of British ales and ciders with a smattering of good foreign beers, mainly from small producers that take time over their products.

Restaurant Review: Gourmet San

Finding places to rent means a lot of talking to estate agents who don't have anything you want and then ring you for weeks after asking if it was a 3 bedroom for September that you wanted.  No it wasn't, that must have been someone else, and could you please STOP RINGING ME!  On the plus side you do go to parts of town you don't often visit (at least not during the day) and that means you get to eat at new places.  This led me to find a place that did amazing cupcakes, it also meant I got to try Gourmet San in Bethnal Green, somewhere I've been reading about for a while.
