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

Go! Incredible gorgonzola & pear pizza for two (big!) for180 pesos - just so flavourful. Lovely vibe with particularly good indie music & friendly staff

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.

Aside from the very cool hipster decor, all bright yellow metal lamps and vintage posters, this place does seriously good food. We picked the two course set, with fresh, chilled gazpacho to start and a Chicken Caesar salad for main. What distinguished both was the great quality of ingredients - with a special shoutout for the Parmesan and delicious croutons. For 9 euros, this was one of the best salads I've ever had.

Wonderful - McSweeney's social enterprise around child literary and storytelling translates into this kickass children's book and activity store that is pure imagination. It's stunningly done, full of wordy goodies that give the enterprise cash. Come and spend.

Great pizza, shame about the service and general atmosphere. We were the only customers at lunch....but the pizza still took a full 45 minutes to come. Despite ordering a salad and pizza "to share" and their team coming back to check twice we wanted both at once, we still got the salad a full 30 mins before the pizza. Reason given was that they had another big order coming in (we were still the only customers in 45 mins). Also, their loo opens onto the bar...and has no loo roll or hand towel. Very disappointing.

Beware - booked this place online only to find it is nothing like the pictures. My room is in an annex a good five minutes walk away, completely unmanned, where you have to wait on the street for the main reception to buzz you in. I was told the door to the annex would be unlocked until 11pm but, tonight, it was locked when I came back at 8, so had to call the hotel to let me in. Room is OK - certainly nothing like the pictures, and not worth 170 euros. Walls like paper (kept awake by next door room giggling and someone creepily walking on the exterior balcony outside my room) and TV the size of a stamp. Very small and dark, too - just about fine for a single person but I think a couple would struggle.

I'd give it five stars if there were seats inside...on such a sunny day, the charming wooden seats surrounded by wild flowers right on the street is the perfect place for the excellent flat whites this tiny stand dishes out. There's a queue even on a quiet Sunday, but it's worth it.
