I took a trip through Kings Cross the other day and look what I saw:


The Other Side Restaurant & Bar, Kingscross, London.


No longer do we have to dream about what it would be like to eat and drink from the Other Side, for the Other Side has bought munch and gulp to us in the form of this restaurant!


edit: Italian food.

For those fans of Spider Robinson. The Place exists outside of the Florida Keys. There's a "The Place" in the neighborhood of Bowness in Calgary Alberta.

But "The Other Side" is definitely a place I'd add to my dream trip agenda if/when I ever get a chance to travel across the ocean.

I was using the same typeface as that for a little while on my this site too!

While it is a good idea for a meet, I suspect that most of us would rather meet in a pub for the sake of economy, which is rather a shame.

I don't know, if I were able to go to one of the Meets there, I'd book that place. Just once at least. Someone should scope out the prices there.

There is a Cool Beans coffee shop up in Duluth, Minnesota... I saw it when I was heading a bit farther up north to canoe.

But The Other Side Bar and Restaraunt? Nothing like it in the Midwest.

I heard on TV yesterday about an American liquor store, called Beaver.

Beaver Liquor.

Apparently they do a brisk trade in T-shirts.

There's a resturaunt about an hour from here called Adam's Ribs. I found this amusing, looking at it from a religious standpoint. tongue.gif


--------------------
They ended up calling it Jinx, because while it was a friendly
sounding word, it still warned of its potential for disaster. And it
was easier, at least among their circle of friends, to simply say
"Jinx" when Sophie wasn't to be trusted around anything that could
possibly be influenced by this particular trait of hers.

bah, there was a band in japan with Hideato Matsumoto (Deceased) called Spread Beaver.
Nobody in japan knew what it means, so these little girls were running around in band t-shirts...heh. i stumbled upon some pictures of some fans in japan wearing their shirts...funniest thing i've seen in a while.

Oh, here in my city, our comedy troupe is called 'The Other Side'
i saw a sticker for them on a street lamp once, and i did a double-take. i thought Mata was chatching on over here...alas...

I saw "S&M Concrete" the other day... I thought it was a common happenchance and that the businessmen were too stupid to get the sexual innuendo. Then I saw its logo - a woman dressed in black leather holding a whip and handcuffs. I don't know what that has to do with concrete, but I will go there, despite the price, for any and all of my concrete-ing needs.

Britain has many fun place names. In London there used to be many 'Whores Lane's but for some reason the residents voted to change them... Funny that.

I've got these:

Sandy Balls (map)
21.6 miles

Titty Hill (map)
23.6 miles

Cuckoo's Knob (map)
26.9 miles

Balls Cross (map)
31.8 miles

Wet Pits (map)
32.0 miles

Zig-Zag Hill (map)
36.8 miles

Lickfold (map)
37.1 miles

Handcock's Bottom (map)
37.7 miles

Pishill (map)
40.2 miles

Knob Hill (map)
42.2 miles

Other UK people can find their own ones here http://places.jump-around.com/closest/

And here's a list of some global ones http://www.i-r-genius.com/rudeplaces.html

And just to really demolish any tone that this thread may have previously had...

http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=21...&bi=~&lu=N&ar=y
(I especially like the way that its about six miles north of Maidenwell.)

Are there such entertaining names in the US? From looking at maps it appears that almost everywhere is called 'Pleasent'. That's what you get for letting puritans name everything. What you needed was a few more coarse commoners to name the places...

'Ah, there be a real foul'un livin o'there. We like to call 'is place Scrote's Mount.'
