The event that's been a very long time in the making

Heaven for transport nerds like me. Miss it and miss out! 
 
Are you brave enough to explore an abandoned tube station?

RSVP: http://goo.gl/aL1RiF

Abandoned since 1994, access to Aldwych Station has been strictly limited… until now.

We’re offering 44 City Experts the unique opportunity to take part in a rare Aldwych Station tour.

Quietly hidden away beneath the busy streets of London, we’ll be exploring the underground labyrinth of hidden passages, long-forgotten tunnels and the deserted walkways of a station that was once frequented by Londoners for almost 100 years.

Feeling brave enough to join us? This event is open to qualified City Experts (sign up at g.co/cityexpert) who write at least 5 new reviews on Google. We’ll send you a confirmation email by 21st to let you know you’re on the list.

We’ll be taking two separate groups to venture into the station; one at 11am, and one at 1pm. Photography inside the station is not permitted, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled and make this journey into the tube one you’ll never forget!

Entrepreneurs need a lot of resources to be successful. Community is a big factor, and in today's fast-moving, technology-driven era, it is more important than ever.

"I also give Google credit for working to fix the gender imbalance and to the +Google for Entrepreneurs  group for being supportive of projects that help women — including a crowd-created book that I am finalizing about women in innovation"

So proud of Google for taking the transparent route towards a much larger problem around proper, true diversity in the workplace. 

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/making-sense/fixing-googles-gender-gap-shouldnt-hard/
Silicon Valley companies justify their dearth of women technologists by claiming that there just aren’t enough to go around. And employee data from Google released Wednesday prove that the technology behemoth is no different; only 17 percent of its technology positions are held by women. This is disappointing and there are no excuses for it. Luckily there are tried and true measures to recruit and keep quality women engineers. Continue reading →

Oh so in favour. 
 
Fancy a dip?

It looks like King's Cross could soon be the site of a new 'natural' bathing pond. If the project goes ahead, the development could be in use as soon as July!: goo.gl/XQ2i1z

Avoid, especially lone female travellers. The first room we were given was next door to a rowdy group of guys, drinking with the door open & making loud calls in the corridor. We complained & got moved to a quieter room with iron marks over the seat & general shabbiness. WiFi didn't work & took 3 phone calls to reception & then me heading down there for them to realise they'd given me a non working password. Having spent a week in alcohol free Kerala, my husband & I were looking forward to a cocktail with dinner...until we checked out their bar Waves. Neon lighting, pumping dance music (at 7pm) & a whole room of men doing shots made us think the boardwalk restaurant might be better. It's pretty but half outside so the, again, pumping dance music competes with constant beeps from tuk tuks. Then decided to get room service - 3 phone calls & one in person trip (another 30 mins!) to order from someone whose English wasn't great. Eventually called to let us know that, despite 2 restaurants & one bar, neither gin or rum (our drinks choices) were available & the other 4 liquors on the menu were also out. Electricity more unreliable than you expect at a Ramada. Generally frustrating experience, wouldn't stay here again.

I love quirk & maximalism so was excited to go here. But, while the decors interesting, the dining experience is a total rip off. Diners can only get a set menu but, tho the website states it includes service charge,the price isn't given. When we arrived, we were sat in a room which felt a bit dirty. Visible cobwebs in several places. We were told the meal was $20 despite being veggie - in practise, this was a thin but tasty coconut soup, rice and curry (least tasty I've had in a week, always for a few dollars) and a chocolate pudding. The food felt very forgettable for such a price and, when the third huge cockroach scuttled across the floor, we chose to leave before our coffee/tea (included in set menu). Just as well because the waiter didn't offer it..then asked for a tip as service charge not included. Avoid.

Buzzy seven-floor building; co-working spaces for both resident and drop-in members, several large events spaces that third parties can rent out for free and an airy basement cafe dishing up strong good coffee, sarnies and snacks to power the entrepreneurial types working here. Great energy and always lots going on; I love coming here.
