A collection of hair-raising beards... 
I originally saw the National Beard and Mustache Championships in the local news paper in Vegas, where I currently live. I had missed the 2012 Championship

Loving my #nexus9 - a few early bugs and oversights on the code but generally an awesome step up from my ageing #nexus7.  Now I need +Google UK to make the covers available to buy so I can protect it! Any word on the ETA guys?

I like that if you say 'Ok Google, what is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?', Google says 'Did you mean air-speed velocity of an unladen European swallow?'. It's not quite the right response but I'll take it.

A definite favourite for a daytime date. The Orangery at Kensington Palace serves a quintessentially British afternoon tea with excellent nibbles and exemplary tea leaves. The champagne available is also perfect. I highly recommend booking in advance but you can normally turn up Monday-Thursday during the day without a booking and not have to wait for long. It's high brow British, so noisy boisterous children (or adults) will be frowned upon, which makes it perfect for a birthday treat or social occasion, or a posh daytime date.

As far as multiplex cinemas in London go, this is one of the better options. In London the high ticket prices rarely feel worth the sub-par service, but this is a rare cinema where I actually feel like I'm getting what I pay for. Most of the screens are pretty well-kept and service is usually fast. The staff here are also more friendly than usual for central London.

A must-visit for Sylvanian Families fans in London, it's a treasure trove of rarities and exclusives to buy, as well as some sweet dioramas. The staff are very friendly and talkative. I took my wife here for her birthday to buy her a relic of her childhood and she was delighted. If you don't want to linger while your partner / children spend their pocket money, then the café next door is a perfect retreat.

Five Guys is slightly better than McDonald's, but not enough to justify the price. The burgers are far less good than people think, the beef is low quality and padded out quite a lot with gunk. For the money, you can get an infinitely better burger at GBK or Byron, or one of the more individual burger joints in London. The Ealing branch of Five Guys is generally clean and I like the decor, but the staff are as sullen as any other budget fast food franchise. It will do well catching people coming out of Ealing Broadway station, especially late at night, as was the case with me. The fries are much better than McDonald's, but nowhere near as good as the kind served in Byron etc. The quirky Coke machines are the only really stand-out thing here, and I'm not sure how long they'll last before they're swapped out for a cheaper system. If you're hungry and in the area, I'd venture up the road to one of the other restaurants, or go to Subway.

An excellent Victorian pub tucked away from the central crush. A staggering range of drinks and relative proximity to public transport make it a great place to start a night out. There are lots of nooks and crannies to tuck into with your pint, and some marvellous original Victorian tile work and decoration. Considering this was derelict two years ago, it's an absolute jewel now for authentic pub and ale fans.

The best coffee at the ExCel in my experience, and also usually quieter than the other outlets because it's up the far end. They also have great quick food options, including some breakfast granola pots for a healthy option. The upstairs area is great for a quiet space to watch the world go by!

An Aladdin's Cave of guitars of different varieties to suit all budgets and almost all tastes. There's a friendly, positive vibe in the shop and the staff are usually very laid back. I've bought a guitar here and several effects pedals. The prices are competitive and you can often pick up a bargain if you chat to the staff for a while about what you're looking for and what your budget is. The only negative element is that a few times I've been in looking for something they don't have in stock, and they've taken my name and number to follow up on ordering it in, but have NEVER actually followed up. This is a shame, because they've missed out on a lot of money because I've ended up buying what I'm looking for online when I'd rather support a local business. This is a 'must visit' for any guitarist and I'd thoroughly recommend going here to buy what you're looking for rather than ordering online because they can make sure the instrument is set up for your style and you get great after sales service.
