This Saturday, there's a new vegan cake shop opening in Camden...
But even I can't eat cake for 9 hours (though they'll be doing burgers and bagels too). So it also seems like a good opportunity to sample some of Camden's other vegan-friendly eateries - and to visit vegan shops such as the Third Estate and Vx too. (Even though Vx is actually over the border in... Islington!)
You're welcome to come and go as you wish. And if you're not up for walking, you're welcome to stay longer at the previous venue, move onto the next one, explore the world-famous markets, pop into Whole Foods, etc. But I'm suggesting something like the following...
11:00 Breakfast at inSpiral (if you're up in time!)
12:00 Walk to Third Estate and Bumblebee
12:30 Third Estate and Bumblebee
13:30 Walk to Cookies and Scream (via Earth)
14:00 Cookies and Scream
15:00 Walk to Vx
16:15 Walk to Cakes 'n' Treats
17:00 Cakes 'n' Treats (opening day!)
21:30 After-dinner drinks...
I doubt we'll manage to stick to this accurately. (If at all!) And I'm still open to suggestions. But I wanted to put some kind of "schedule" together to make it easier for people to know where/when to come, if they're only joining us for part of the day. (inSpiral, Cookies and Scream, and Cakes 'n' Treats are probably the best places to join us.)
I haven't suggested anywhere specific for dinner or after-dinner drinks. I guess we'll see how many of us there are and where people want to go (not to mention where we can get in!) But possibilities include Cakes 'n' Treats, Dou Dou, Loving Hut, inSpiral, Our Black Heart, Brewdog...
Similarly, I won't be making bookings at any of the daytime venues. So we can't guarantee there'll be space for us! But there are nearby parks if the weather's nice. And it looks like it's going to be 14°C to 19°C and dry. :-)
