Healthiest overall I think would be Milk & Honey Cafe in Colombo 7 (http://www.yamu.lk/place/milk-and-honey-cafe.html). At Thumulla Junction the Paradise Veg Food Court (in the Sri Sambuddha Jayanthi building) does a pretty good rice and curry - http://www.yamu.lk/place/paradise-vegetarian-food-court.html. That's the closest thing to Bamba we know.

Second Pamiya's recommendations. Siam House is big and happy. Park Street Mews also has a big space and there's a private room in the back, think that can fit about 10.

I think Carlsberg organized a pub crawl last year. Suchetha has also uploaded a pub crawl route here (tuk tuk edition) - http://goo.gl/maps/YBs2l . The only area I know that has a lot of drinking spots in walking distance is around Galle Face Hotel (Skky, Kama, Inn On The Green, Amuseum), but those are mostly nightclubs and not pubs.

Could do, but some of them can't really be visited. They did just film Midnight's Children at St. Thomas College and it's interesting to find the original Bishop's and St. Thomas' colleges in Colombo north

This company does guided tours (http://www.mylittleisland.lk/index.php/sri-pada). I haven't done Adam's Peak but called a friend (Boycy) who did. Do check out his magazine, The Sri Lankan (http://www.thesrilankan.net/), they had a good feature on the peak.

'You can stay but it's really cold. You need to go early (10 or 11 PM), there's a big public hall. You need a ground sheet (like a wax paper), bed sheet, and covering sheet. There are basic toilet facilities, sometimes hot water. If you go down the Ratnapura side there's a bigger resting hall. Going up through Hatton and coming down thru Ratnapura is interesting.

Avoid weekends and poya days.'

Good luck. Pack warm
