After taking a look at www.diamondpartybus.ca I was really psyched about renting one of their busses for a fantastic night out with friends. A lot of my friends have nice places that they either rent or own and throw parties. That’s kind of our thing in our group. Everyone knows that we are all good for a night of fun at various times per year. But with no place of my own to hold any sort of event, I always had to tag along and help one of my friends get out. I really wanted to be responsible to throwing one of the best nights ever on my own. I had no idea how to do that until I came across that website and realized I could do it on a moving vehicle.
I met most of my friends in a fraternity in college. There, we had big events where 100 to 300 people would show up. We had a really large frat house and we had the room for it. But we have scaled down and only invite the most fun and hip people to the get-togethers that we have now. We have to do this because people can get really rowdy and you don’t want complete strangers wrecking your home. So, renting something seemed like a good idea to me. No moveable furniture that can be picked up and thrown. Everything is secured to the wall or flor very securely. Also, there’s only enough room for about 15 people, so that would keep down invite list to a respectable number.
After I rented one and we partied all night, everyone talked about it for many weeks to come. Other friends said that they felt it would be better if they got a bus in the future instead of inviting people to their own residences. The idea really caught on, and now we have parties while rolling through the city about 5 times per year.

Six years ago I found a green, cloth-covered hardback book at my parents’ home. The spine read Climbing Days: Dorothy Pilley. Recognising the name, I sat down to read, intrigued; I’d stumbled upon the fabled mountaineering memoir of my great-great aunt.
Endpaper sketch-maps of mountain ranges led on to stories of thrilling ascents, love, camaraderie and derring-do on mountains around the world. It was vivid, packed with incident and humour, strikingly modern and egalitarian. I read it, then asked my father about the author, a woman who, 1935 memoir aside, I knew next to nothing about. The conversation that followed set me on a quest to discover more about Dorothy, or Dorothea as she was within the family, and her amazing mountaineering life and legacy.
Dorothea was born in Camberwell, south London, in 1894 to a family on the up. Her father, a chemist, teacher, and entrepreneur, had amassed a small fortune manufacturing baby food. Dorothea was sent away to the exclusive Queenwood school in Eastbourne to be groomed for a life of top-end housewifery, but promptly rebelled – a trait and spirit which endured.

As a young woman she kicked forcefully against the life and choices others thought best and seemly. Eventually, she achieved a level of autonomy through journalism (for, among others, the Daily Express, and periodicals including Lady’s Pictorial, the Englishwoman, and the Pall Mall Magazine) and by working as a secretary for the proto-feminist British Women’s Patriotic League. It was also during this period that she began to escape London to climb in the mountains of north Wales and Skye.
Snowdonia was central to Dorothea’s independent 20s. It was there she learned to climb on the nursery slopes of Tryfan
Snowdonia was central to Dorothea’s independent 20s. It was there, in 1915, that she learned to climb on the nursery slopes of Tryfan and the Idwal Slabs; there, in 1917, that she first met her future husband and climbing partner, the literary critic and scholar IA (Ivor) Richards; and there, in 1921, that she helped found the Pinnacle Club – the world’s first climbing club established by women for women. So it seemed apt that I began there too.
From the moment I decided to research and write about Dorothea, it felt crucial to engage with her mountaineering legacy in a physical way, to climb the routes and peaks she pioneered with Ivor. I travelled first to the Idwal Slabs – a formation the locals call Rhiwiau Caws (Slopes of Cheese). It is a great fist of rock, dark fingers pushing down into the wet earth. I hiked up the A5 from Bethesda in hard rain, then on into the bowl of Cwm Idwal to stand beneath the rhyolite cliffs and watch others climb the slick rocks, soaking up the scene and the sky.
A couple of months later I returned with members of the Pinnacle Club, a chastening and farcical trip: a circular several-mile walk around Ogwen in a deluge. We climbed nothing. Saturated and silent in a steaming car, we drove to their hut in the valley of Nant Gwynant. Drying out by the fire, we looked through their archive of letters and photographs of the club founders. Theclub members were kind and stoical and I was grateful for their hospitality. Several months later, writing up the episode, I discovered a Welsh phrase for such sodden days: Mae hi’n brwr hen wragedd a ffyn – “It’s raining old women and sticks”.
It wasn’t until I took part in a Conville Winter mountaineering course that I felt I’d experienced real mountaineering
In the months that followed, I learned the ropes on crags and walls around the UK in all weathers. However, it wasn’t until I took part in a Conville Winter mountaineering course in the Cairngorms that I felt I’d truly experienced real mountaineering. Run in conjunction with Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre, the Conville courses were established by Jonathan Conville’s family in the wake of his death on the north face of the Matterhorn in 1979. He was 27. A trust was established to provide subsidy and training to young mountaineers so they might enjoy the mountains in greater safety.
Dorothea and Ivor have been described to me as climbing aristocracy, whose feats and reputations spanned generations. To properly follow them it was vital that I learned to climb and belay safely on snow and ice and get to grips with spiky kit, such as axes and crampons. So, stood with a team of fellow Alpine rookies below the cliffs of Coire an t-Sneachda, I was taught to navigate, dig snow holes and take avalanche precautions.
“You need enough in your locker to survive and return to safety if things get out of hand,” explained our instructor, Sammy. This is the crux of the Conville course: that while risk can never be eliminated in the mountains, it can be managed.
“Risk was the salt,” wrote Dorothea, “but he or she would be a stupid cook who thought the more there is of it the better.”
Dorothea was every inch the swashbuckling heroine, a fierce trailblazer, yet always caring
And so, mindful not to be stupid cooks, we set about learning our place within the Cairngorm’s wild sphere.
There followed two trips to the fabled Dent Blanche in Switzerland: a beautiful, savage, massive Sphinx-like peak that forms the apex of Dorothea’s memoir. The first time, I travelled over with my father and we set about the mountain with great zest and enthusiasm but we suffered: poor fitness, altitude sickness, failure to reach the summit, arguments, angry hut guardians and then a benighting. That is a beautiful word but a horrible reality: the light broke down, visibility was low so we stopped for the night, sat on a freezing ledge above Zermatt with an intermittent grandstand view of the Matterhorn. That rather took the shine off the expedition.
My second attempt, made several months later with Swiss guide Jean-Noël Bovier, while far better organised and successful on paper, was equally eventful – and occasionally fractious. He got me to the summit, for which I’ll always be grateful, but at the cost of a thorough dragooning. The climb was a vertiginous boot camp of sarcasm, tough love and swearing. On the descent I fell through a snow cornice and nearly began to descend at a speed incompatible with life. It all happened in a flash but Jean-Noël’s skill and hawser strength saved me. We may have argued, but I love that man, won’t hear a word against him. I can’t thank him enough.
Would Dorothea and Ivor have approved? I hope so. They were fantastic climbers, but at the same time, wonderfully droll, funny people with a strong sense of the ridiculous. Dorothea was every inch the swashbuckling heroine, a fierce trailblazer, yet always caring. I hope they would have been pleased that I went out to meet them in their element. I grew to love and value them enormously along the way.
“It is the reverberation of one’s life among them,” wrote Dorothea of the mountains, “In each case the sense of an uncapturable significance will arise, and its secret – for the mountaineer as for any pilgrim passion – is almost an open one. Therein, reflected, is the experience of being ardently alive.’
Voodoo ray’s, dalston
There are three important ingredients for successful late-night food: it needs to be quick, delicious and fun. No one wants to sit down for a six-course, white-tablecloth meal at 1.30am and pay attention to their table manners. You want something tasty and you want it fast. And you don’t want anyone telling you to stop laughing so loudly. Voodoo Ray’s lives up to this because it serves pizza by the slice, a post-midnight pizza special and a solid drinks list – as well playing excellent music. Inside white subway tiles and flickering neon lights rebound the always-incredible disco/dance/electro/better-music-than-most-nearby-clubs playlist. It never feels like it’s overrun by super-smashed vampire clubbers. It’s full of the usual Dalston crowd of overgrown tweens dressed like Full House extras, drag queens, off-duty witches, people who freelance for Vice and people in search of an amazing slice of pizza before, or after, heading out. They have far-above-average toppings such as fennel chilli sausage and bacon dust, and it named a pizza after Giorgio Moroder. That’s a pizza mic drop right there.

Spuntino has a grungy, Edward Hopper-ish quality that is perfect for night owls. Squatting in one of Soho’s still ungentrified corners, it doesn’t announce its presence with anything other than an understated number 61. You perch on stools round a central bar where cool, beautiful people knock up punchy cocktails and deliver food that’s perfect for the late-night reveller: sliders, delicate pizzette, perhaps the capital’s finest, fromage-iest macaroni cheese, oozing and bubbling in its cast iron skillet and laced with at least three different cheeses. Sophisticated versions of diner classics, with an occasional Italian accent is the house style. Despite being owned by the same people as the ever-expanding Polpo chain, Spuntino retains the air of a rackety insiders’ secret.

Bob Bob Ricard, Soho
It can be hard to find somewhere good to eat late at night in London. One of the reasons we opened Duck & Waffle as a 24-hour restaurant was to give people somewhere decent to go after hours – away from a nightclub or kebab shop. I love late-night dining at Bob Bob Ricard. It’s so elegant, chic and understated; inside are beautiful booths that are perfect for an intimate gathering but the restaurant doesn’t feel pretentious or stuffy. It also has “press for champagne” buttons in each booth – lethal when you’ve already had one too many. The menu has mainly Russian dishes but there are British and French influences too. One of my favourite things is the “iconic” steak tartare, which is made with foie gras and capers. I also like to get a couple of the smaller dishes, especially the oysters and lobster dumplings, and, of course, champagne. Eating there can get expensive but it doesn’t need to be; the house champagne isn’t going to bankrupt you but, compared with a kebab and a can of coke, it’s definitely a treat. Bob Bob Ricard is the kind of place you go on a whim but that’s the wonder of it.

Beigel Bake, Brick Lane
I’ve just had a kid, so it’s not often enough I find myself in the state, or the area, for Brick Lane’s Beigel Bake. But there have definitely been times I’ve been tempted to drive down after work and get something. It’s open 24 hours a day and makes its own bagels. It’s comforting to know you can go there any time and get something to eat. It’s usually exactly what you’re looking for at that time: hot salt beef, loads of mustard and bread. Sometimes I go off piste and get a salmon and cream cheese … but it never hits the same spot. You get an eclectic mix of people in there. Sometimes it can be a bit scary, other times a good vibe. But the staff have a good way of dealing with people. You get a few people asking for money, so you might give them half your bagel. It’s never quiet or empty. That area has changed a lot over the years but hopefully, it’s got the strength to stand the test of time.

Meat Liquor, W1
I have a long history with Meat Liquor’s green chilli cheeseburger, having taken my first bite in a Peckham car park back in 2009, when the future restaurant was just a burger van. There was this guy inside (Yianni Papoutsis) going on about frying the chillies in butter and proportions of fat to meat; I knew then I was onto a good thing, and it’s still my favourite burger in London. If I’m in town, past midnight, then I’m inevitably drunk and it’s all I can think about. I head for theBond Street branch, a dark cavern of neon, graffiti, noise and meat-smoke. The burger arrives rustling in tissue paper, a frosty beer on the side. I’m no burger bore but there’s serious attention to detail here, and it shows. A glorious, messy fix.

Ranoush Juice, Marylebone
Sometimes, I want somewhere to go and hang after a bar or pub, or even the theatre (I’d love to add club but I fear those days are over). You’re most likely to find me eating in Ranoush Juice when I’m drunk, in town and hungry for good food. I was bought up in Paddington, just off the Edgware Road. From the age of 15, when I started going out, Ranoush Juice was the place my sister Cora and I would end up. Despite living in Hackney now, I’ve been known to pitstop there for a takeaway in the middle of the night on many occasions. It’s essentially a Middle Eastern/Lebanese shawarma bar, but the shawarma is great and the vibe is bouncing. The decor is stripped-back and very neon and metallic, but it’s filled with fruits for the juice and different Lebanese treats on the counter. I will always get a shawarma wrap, as it comes with extra garlic and chill sauce, but if I’m eating in I’ll get loads of small plates. I love the hummus with lamb shawarma, the chicken livers and pomegranate, the soujek spicy sausages and a fatoush salad.

How to Select the Best Fishing Charter Choosing a charter is the most vital part of going for any fishing trip and the boat and the captain that someone chooses can make the trip or memorable or a nightmare and thus it falls into the hands of the person intending to go for a fishing trip to select a good boat and a captain. Being aware of the right charter is crucial because it involves not only selecting a boat but also other issues such as fishing in unfamiliar waters and the captain may need to explain to the fisherman how the fish behave in the water so that they can be able to know when to set bait and catch fish. Other issues that might come into play include selecting the right gear to catch the fish that the person wants to catch and issues such as sea sickness which can be addressed early in advance by selecting a large vessel that eliminate all the bumps associated with being out at sea. In view of the points mentioned above it is important to select a good charter boat and the first thing that is to be looked into is the price because when it comes to having a great fishing expedition cheap is not always the best and sometimes the expensive offers offered by chartering companies may include a list of items that if well attended to will guarantee a great shipping experience. Some of the issues that need to be addressed include the following: maintenance of the boat at regular intervals; inspection and replacements of any mechanical, electronic or navigational parts which are part of the ship’s inventory; acquisition and updating of the suitable licenses; insurance premiums that the boat owner needs to pay that will cover all passengers on the vessel; the docking fees at each marina and the provision of proper tackle and bait to everyone on the ship. Apart from that the other issue to look into is fuel, which is dependent on some factors such as size of the boat and the engine type and the distance of the nearest fishing location. In order to reduce costs the potential client can check the following issues: the presence of other kinds of discounts such as discounts for people that take an excursion for multiple days, discounts for member of the angling community, the presence of no hidden costs such as fuel surcharges and what amount of tip is expected from the client by the ship’s crew. A point worth highlighting is that following the above tips will guarantee that any person who wants to go fishing has a great experience out there in the water.What No One Knows About Services
