It’s Friday and it’s time for the debut episode of Awesome Things My Friends Have Made! First on my list is kake and bob’s Randomness Guide to London. When I want to find a pub that serves decent ale or a restaurant that serves delicious non-standard-British fare in a neighbourhood I don’t know, the RGL is my first stop, and it always delivers an excellent recommendation. The creators and contributors make an effort to provide the kind of detail that you might not know you wanted, such as exact prices paid on the dates of their visit, child-friendliness, music volume, and layout of the venue. They also give accessibility information, both at entrances and (crucially for London) to the loos.
If you live in London and want to contribute to the RGL, I can highly recommend going with kake and/or bob on a scouting trip for the guide. Both make a delightful accompaniment to a good pint or a plate of delicious food.
You can track the evolution of the RGL on Dreamwidth at rglondon, which is updated weekly.
