London’s most prestigious burger blogger (er no, not me) has created his own burger menu.  Burgerac is my fav London burger detective, and his taste in music is almost as good as mine. He’s not a Bruce Springsteen fan (I’m working on it) but he is all about great tunes. What a relief! London now…

Review: The Joint, Brixton, London

Are you one of those people loitering around the bakery section of the supermarket? I am. I can’t resist the smell of freshly baked bread. If you’re into that sort of thing too then you must get your ass down to The Joint in Brixton, South London. The Joint is well known for being one…
