>Franca Manca; (( 4 Market Row, covered market)) I've heard people rate the vegan option here- I've heard there's one vegan pizza option, then you can add toppings; little bit pricey *about £1.50 per extra topping* but a friend said she just had the plain Margareita *minus cheese indeed* with just Artichokes added, that works out a good deal & sounds nice indeed!Franco Manca - Brixton (http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.francomanca.co.uk/pages/brixton.html&sa=U&ei=BHd4UbO3Ksiw0QW05IGIDQ&ved=0CBgQFjAA&sig2=wri--Rag32zkfvlxxPWd-w&usg=AFQjCNFsk1-uU8xcA4aDCgWCdUc18Hl3Xg)

Seating options >> there is some seating that may be available in the market, there is also a seating area upstairs outside the Recreation Centre, to the left; at Ms Cupcake, there is some out door seating available; also option of drinks, at the next door cafe!

After enjoying some Vegan delights, then.....

The Dog Star! ....it's off to pub around 2.30 or 3ish (it may be earlier if the weather is a bit much! Haha!!) for drinks & good conversation!! :)

OR *weather permitting!*

Brockwell Park

At 3ish, if you fancy a trip to Brockwell Park, I'll head off with a little group for a couple of hours *say till about 5ish; could vary!* & meet whoever's still in the pub later on! I rather like the Walled Garden :)(Brockwell Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://www.google.com/url?q=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brockwell_Park&sa=U&ei=7Z5-UbuIKse7Pe6IgIgC&ved=0CBwQFjAB&usg=AFQjCNGi8FIjNfBwQCtqHhuKOPLTG7iiow)>> At the end of Coldharbor Lane, with the main part of Brixton Road to your right, turn left passing by the Ritzy Cinema, & go up the main road, which is where Brixton Road becomes Effra Road; there are buses but it's not a long walk, roughly 10/15 minutes. Keep your eyes peeled at the road names to your left; when you see a street called Brixton Water Lane, turn left & after a short walk, the park entrance is on your right)

Intrepid Fox; Post Walkabout metal/rock bar back North of the River!

I usually leave Brixton by bus around 5.30pm, but this time it may be more like 8, I think! We meet people at 7pm under the Freddy Mercury Statue, Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road & wonder off to Govinda's & Maoz if anyone's hungry indeed, then head to Intrepid Fox for 9-late!

Here's the page :) Vegans Invade Intrepid Fox!

All the best, Bye for now, Jess :)
