That Essential Pre-Pride Breakfast

HarinGAY is now meeting on the first Saturday of the month, which as you all know, will be the day of LGBT Pride in July. HarinGAY stalwarts are not thrown by this as there will be time for breakfast before going on to the parade, you’ll be very handy for the tube at Turnpike Lane.

Cafe Teria

Cafe Teria at 238 Langham Road, Haringey, London N15 3NB is the venue, 11am onwards is the time. Will there be time to embroider a HarinGAY banner?

The Pride parade forms up in Portland Place, to leave at 1pm, how civilised. So Turnpike Lane> Kings Cross> Great Portland Street, 23 minutes.

Here’s the parade route:

Pride route

Note for our eastern Haringey cohort, the Victoria Line is closed all that weekend, so you will need to head over to the Piccadilly line connections anyway.

Getting to Cafe Teria:
Tube: Turnpike Lane, Piccadilly Line
Bus:  W4, 29, 41, 67,  123, 141, 144,217, 230, 231, 232

And – Yay New York ! Civilisation creeps onwards across the USA.

San Marco’s stars in BBC film

San Marco’s, the restaurant in Bruce Grove which hosted the inaugural meeting of HarinGAY, is the location for a film showing tonight on BBC2, 9pm.

The Song of Lunch tells the story of book editor, Alan Rickman, who meets up with former lover, Emma Thompson, for a lunch at their old haunt “Zanzotti’s” 15 years after their break-up.  Zanotti’s is moved from Soho to Tottenham, so now you can virtually check out this new venue on the HarinGAY circuit.

Hello world!
