I’ve just been forwarded an email in which Time Out Budapest editor Tom Popper says he and editor-at-large Peterjon Cresswell have resigned, apparently over money issues, and which suggests that the mag may not make it out next month. If it is true that time has run out for Time Out here in Budapest (I haven’t been able to confirm it) I wouldn’t be greatly surprised; there seems to be a unwritten rule in Budapest that second-language publications are either of high quality, or are money-makers. And under the direction of the relentlessly energetic and upbeat Popper, the quality hasn’t just been high, but high enough that I always felt downright ashamed reading it. Either way, hats off to Tom and the gang for keeping it so classy for so long. Respect.
