Content A while ago, my girlfriend and I resigned ourselves to having to book a table, rather than walk-in at the popular Inamo restaurant in Soho - on a week night. Touting all new interactive (but fully booked) tables including a chef cam and ordering system, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Content The one thing I like about Christmas in London are the sometimes extravagant displays put on in retail stores in the capital. The credit crunch seems yet to significantly affect the likes of Liberty and Fortnun & Mason. I've got a feeling their clientele are rich enough to to skim through unaffected. Small clue were the Christmas crackers at F&M which sold for up to £1,000! (The crackers discounted from £500 to £369 made me laugh - cynically.)

Xmas in London

Regards myself wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, the following sentiment seems to be doing the rounds and sums everything up thoughtfully.

Content Yesterday, I attended the "VIP" launch of the INQ1 - touted to be the most advanced social networking phone in the world. The thing is, I didn't know this until I got there.

Like the 7th Syndikate scenario, I was contacted via this website as apparently, my blog "covers a lot of relevant themes - examining social media, design, urban living etc."

INQ

I'm not totally sure about that - I cover what I like really(!), but I can't complain when there is free food and drink and potentially something exciting on offer.

Content Princi in Wardour Street is my newly discovered Italian stop off for some informal snacking. I popped in over the weekend to sample some cheesecake, but the place seems to be also good for pasta and meat dishes as well as the odd freshly baked foccaccia. The atmosphere and concept seems very easy going, where you can select from a wide range of bread, cakes and meals (which might all be takeaway too) and after paying for it, simply take it to a nearby space on one of their long rows of tables or along the wall, seated next to a constant bank of running water.

Content I took a quick detour over the weekend to the independent Handmade and Bound event at Euston, which is the Affordable Book & Zine Fair. Held at the St Aloysius Social Club, the collection of cloth-covered tables and varied display of handmade notebooks, comics and artworks gave it quite a homely, indie feel. It probably helped that the space was packed out and sweaty in contrast to the outside wet, cold and gloomy location just off Eversholt Road.

It's been awhile since I came to an event like this, with probably the last time being way over two decades ago at some comic convention when I was still getting pocket money. Some of the stuff I saw was really nice, but unfortunately, alot of it didn't appeal to me or make me want to buy.
