"Lexi" back from summer holidays

The Lexi cinema has reopened after its summer break. You will find a schedule of what films are on here.

It also has a photography exhibition by 1960's photojournalist John ‘Hoppy’ Hopkins with lots of old photos of London that you can pop in and see at anytime.

Map of the area

I noticed my Kensal Rise map (link below left) opened with the map centered nearer Shepherd's Bush than Kensal Rise. Hopefully it is now fixed.

Welcome to any Facebook users

I mentioned this 'blog on the Facebook Kensal Rise groups so maybe we'll get some more readers.

Not much of an update this to welcome people (where's a new restaurant when you need it?!) but to add to the comment on Kuddyco, apparently two ladies are going to run the new shop and it'll be 'filled with nice things'. So it looks like we're gaining something similar to what we're losing.

Slightly away from Kensal Rise, but for the second time we went to Hugo's tonight for dinner. We had planned to go to the pizza place further North on Salusbury Road, but it is closed for summer (reopens on August 17th).

I like Hugo's. I like the atmosphere, and the way you can sit inside yet outside at the same time on a quiet road. The food is good, we had beetroot and goat's cheese salad, fish pie, and haddock with poached egg. I'd say about 10-15% too expensive, but isn't everywhere? It's not somewhere I would go more than once every six months or so, and I've never been for a jazz night, but it was all pretty good.

Kuddyco is closing

Apparently Kuddyco are having a closing down sale. Rather sad, I'd say, although I'm not sure I've bought much from there (more of a girl thing?).

Kensal Green plates

I'm sure most of you have seen these, but here are Kensal Green plates. But which street is it?
