A new popup

The Dressing Room tosses the traditional salad to the side, stabs Caesar in the back, checks out of the Waldorf and pops up in East London. A tasty rebuttal to the idea that salads are solely for the health conscious, The Dressing Room serves filling and delicious dishes full of inventive textures, with an emphasis on the dressing. The clue is in the name. Everything comes with DIY dressings for the diner to complete the dish themselves. The menu has been crafted by Tom Sarafian, who is by day a resident chef of Moro, Exmouth Market. With previous stints at the Michelin starred restaurants St John and Petersham Nurseries, Tom is committed to fresh and contemporary dishes that give a playful ... »

Scooter mechanics/repairs

Hi My Vespa GTV125 needs a bit of looking at as the coolant has been leaking pretty badly recently. I usually use Scooterden for repairs/servicing, however they seem exceptionally busy lately and I’ve heard they’re possibly at the pricier end of the scale, though I’ve never had a problem with any of the work done there. Does anyone have any recommendations when it comes to mechanics/scooter repairs? Cheers! »

Where to Stay in Hackney

Hackney. The name conjures up images of gritty, urban bars, retro antiques markets and artisan, organic, home-brewed coffee in eco-friendly, up cycled, recycled cups. This borough might be known by the uninformed as just a hipster mecca, but’s insider resident, journalist and blogger Donald Strachan knows better. He’s written his own, personalised journey through Hackney for the home stay travel specialists, taking in its family-friendly parks and cycle paths and its impressive collection of independent shops, restaurants and museums and reminding readers just how much there is to love about this buzzing London Borough.

Running – need to find a hill

I’ve recently started running and finding routes (and groups) has been easy but I need to start including hills in my training. Can anyone recommend any hills to practice on around Hackney – Clapton to Vic Park/Broadway area ideally. I’ve only thought of Springfield Park so far and it’s not that near to me. »

Plumber/shower expert

Hi, I need some help with our new shower! We recently had a refurb in our bathroom, but our new shower is experiencing very weak pressure and swinging wildly between scalding hot and ice cold water. Which all in all is not pleasant, and is a very disappointing after spending a great deal of money. (If you’re wondering why we don’t contact the guy who built it, he has moved onto other jobs in London and doesn’t want to come by) Can anyone help, or recommend someone who knows plumbing or shower systems in-depth, and could take a quick look at the problem for us? I am based in Clapton. Please leave details or DM me. Thank you! »

We Own the Night 10k 10/05/14

I am running the We Own the Night 10k in my NIA Project t-shirt, not the corporate stuff sadly attached to this race. I’ll be thinking of Margaret Muller as I run. She was brutally murdered whilst running round Victoria Park, where tomorrow’s event takes place, in 2003. She was a Hackney-based artist originally from the USA. I will donate my ‘goodie’ bag (see pics on @gillygill) consisting of a N*ke running t-shirt, bag and, apparently ‘exclusive’, Alex Monroe designed finisher’s necklace to the highest donator to the charity I’m doing MANY runs for, The NIA Project in East London, a local charity. They help women and children who have experien... »
