I hadn’t seen James 2 in ages. He’d moved out last year to pursue a doomed romance, and, after a very dramatic few months, had ended up living in Hoxton. I’d last seen him at his 27th birthday party a couple of months ago, though that barely counted as I was irretrievably off my noggin […]

You may have read my post on City Dash, a large-scale urban wide game that tickled my housemates and I so much we did it four times in as many months. It involves running around bits of the city solving cryptic clues and evading guards in high-vis, sort of like a slightly more grown-up version of 40-40 Homes. […]

Kanada-Ya’s new Haymarket digs smell like some fragrant wonderland in which pigs spend their days happily rooting out truffles before ritually boiling each other alive.

It’s hardly surprising that bottomless brunches have taken London by storm. (If the promise of boundless booze doesn’t excite you then you can stop reading now. And we can’t be friends.) Unlimited alcohol does have its downsides though; I’ve stumbled away from more than one venue bursting with carbs and Bloody Marys, but not Skylon. […]
I love a good supper club. They’re sociable, good value, and – as tickets must be bought in advance – a welcome antidote to the tiresome trend of no-reservations policies.
A personal hairdresser A personal chef These would be the two things I’ve always said I’d indulge in if I won the lottery. I wouldn’t change much else, but I’d live the rest of my life throwing elaborate dinner parties and tossing my fabulous hair. But while a blow dry in London will cost you […]

I’m proud to announce that duck and waffle, so delicious it has a restaurant named after it, is the latest dish in the Gibson culinary repertoire. It’s a bit fancier than my other specialties (oven chips, sausage sandwiches, eggy bread, etc.) – but, as Carla and I found at School of Wok last week, it’s […]
The Polo Bar at the Westbury Hotel has hit upon an amazing idea. When you order a cocktail, you get two glasses. One full-sized drink for you, and one matching tiddly tipple for your drinking companion.

“It looks quite posh,” said the voice down the phone. “Are you nearly here yet?” It was the usual refrain from Mike and, indeed, anyone else foolish enough to arrive punctually at any sort of social engagement also attended by me. “I’m five minutes away,” I said, from the 55 bus, nine minutes away. “And go on in.

There were a few horrified faces when The Book Of Mormon dropped its first C-bomb 30 minutes into the show, but, looking around, most of what I saw were people looking at each other gleefully, much like my pre-teen friends and I when Mr Tweedy shouted “you thieving little buggers” after the fleeing poultry in Chicken Run.
