Hey, I thought I’d add some more info.

We have a green screen area which could be used for photos, but I’m unsure on how this will work exactly yet. The art wall is a great photo place though.

As for food, the others are right. British food has a bad reputation because British food itself isn’t particularly great. But I can assure you that brits love their food and probably eat food from other cultures more often than their own. We have a huge amount of multiculturalism here, in most towns you’ll find cuisines from Caribbean to Japanese, Romanian to Mexican, and usually cooked by people of those nationalities.

There is literally nothing wrong with British food.

Your singular experience with Mexican food in the UK does not mean that Mexican food in the UK bad. Also mexican food is refried beans and cheese so it's not like it's culinarily exciting.

I like the idea of considering mexican food to be 2 component items. Like saying American food is ketchup and mustard.

To be fair, when I think "damn, I want some Mexican", I'm thinking of a medium hot chunky salsa and melted cheese.

Good, legit Mexican food is difficult to find in most places outside of Mexico. Unless you live near an area with a lot of immigrants from Mexico, chances of there being a good Mexican restaurant nearby is very slim.

First of all, no, it's not. Sadly, there is not 1 Taco Bell in this country. :cry: Taco Bell is my favorite fast food and once upon a time, I would eat there at least 5 times a week. I love their breakfast bowl. Add some guac on it and hot damn is that shit good as fuck!

Secondly, I wouldn't call Taco Bell good legit Mexican food. :P

No @evilcheadar

Speaking of food, what time does lunch start and end? When does dinner begin and end? @Interjection

Also, is this a comprehensive list of all the people who are coming?

For everyone staying at the Travelodge booked through Escape, I thought it would be useful to put all the information in one place:

Here it is: https://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/489 ... wton-hotel

Breakfast and wifi is included.

You can check in from 2:30 PM UK Time.
On the final day, you must checkout by 12:00 noon UK time.

The studio is here: https://goo.gl/maps/w9LxuEYYVvrtvQ2v8

EDIT: The room is paid for, you will not need to exchange any money with the travelodge. We will invoice you today, expect an email from Zak where you will receive instructions on how to pay Escape.

More info:

There is a bus that stops nearby the travelodge and conveniently goes by the studio. Google maps is your friend here! https://goo.gl/maps/w9LxuEYYVvrtvQ2v8

Select the bus option and it will tell you where to go to catch the bus.

Don't worry, it will be very obvious when you arrive at the studio! There is a giant sign saying "Moss Industiral Estate". When you see it, press the stop button. Then it's a 1 minute walk to us :)
