Might the secret of the new London be revealed by tracking the circuit of the railway for a single day – or just a large number of artisan bakeries?

Don't usually rely on Android Wear to tell me what the weather is like, because, well, I have these things called windows. But have to say, this is pretty cool

A glorious bit of London and Sci-Fi nostalgia.

Pleasantly surprised to see the latest Freakonomics book is free on Google Play and Amazon today. It was only released in May and usually costs about six quid.

Story
Tagline
Mobile tech obsessive, martial arts fan, mad fitness training and general geeky sci fi lover
Introduction
I'm mildly obsessed with martial arts, cutting edge fitness and strength training, gadgets of all sorts, dogs, sci-fi and tech. (So if you're the same, feel free to circle me - sure we'll click)

If you're interested in general nonsense then add me to a silly people Circle.

If you're interested in X-Factor, reality TV and that sort of thing then I'm probably not someone with much to offer.

Geek, nerd, fitness fan, follower of science and lover of gadgets probably apply more.

Servant to a Jack Russell.

Trying to learn iOS development but failing miserably as I find my iPhone terribly dull.

Learning more about Android development. Failing less miserably but yeah, there is a fragmentation issue that fries my brain cells a bit.
Bragging rights
Learning Android and iOS programming by resurrecting some ancient BASIC skills. Used to be able to do one armed press ups. Might still be able to.

Fantastic oysters, small but well selected range of beers and a small, cosy dining space. Staff are quick, attentive and chatty. Very nice place for a relaxed date

The New York hit replicated in Covent Garden, you're going to find the most delicious breads, cakes and pastries in the area. The sausage rolls are sublime. They've even transformed the bacon and egg sarnie (bacon, egg and mozzarella brioche) into a work of culinary art

Beautiful theatre, wide aisles and comfy seats. Easy to get to, with lots of public transport access and parking is available if you know the back roads of the area. As a bonus there's a Bryon Burger next door :)

Tasty but expensive for what is, at its heart, gastropub food. Nice atmosphere and decor but doesn't stand out in the array of other pubs and restaurants on Bermondsey Street.

Beautiful theatre in a beautiful setting. Seating and styling is mediaeval, wooden benches and thatched roof, a tiny but vertigo inducing if you're on the upper levels but that's all part of the charm. They have an annual Comedy Store Players evening which is always chaotic fun, the highlight being the Shakespeare spoof to close the evening. Titus Androgynous or Julius Teaser anyone?

Greasy, noisy, brightly lit venue with calorie laden, sugar filled fast food. Awesomely tasty for it though, who knew crumbled bacon would taste so good in a milkshake. Pretty damn delicious once in a while but you'll probably want to have salad for a week after. Not cheap but a lot less chemical than the major M named burger chain

Stunning decor, decent food, reasonably priced and if you squint a bit you will feel transported back to 1930's Paris. Great place to take someone special whilst on a secret budget :)
