Bustronome London – Dining on the move

Have you ever taken one of those tours on a bus around London to learn more about the London’s famous buildings and landmarks but always ended up being a bit peckish? Then Bustronome is the perfect choice as not only will you be able to take in the London surroundings and learn historical facts but you’ll also be able to enjoy a lovely 4 course lunch, or an afternoon tea or even a gastronomic 6 course dinner with a wine flight if you wanted. Think of it as a traditional tour combined with an upscale dining experience.

I had the pleasure of jumping on board along with some other community members of Love Pop Ups London to enjoy a complimentary dining experience in the evening where we dined on 6 luxurious dishes all whilst taking in the sights of London at night.

Social fine dining – Eleven98 Hackney

Venturing into London’s Hackney heading to a social dining experience run by Aidan Brooks called Eleven98 Hackney I was unsure what I was going to be served on the night and with me being very fussy I was a bit concerned.  Also I was going alone as I was invited down personally by Aidan. Going alone was a bit daunting to say the least but when I arrived at Eleven98 Hackney and sat down I soon started to mingle with the other guests, even though those around me were all couples. 

Firstly though let me tell you more about Eleven98 Hackney and Aidan.

Am I the next Vincent van Gogh? – Paint Republic

Growing fast ‘paint and sip’ events are the all-new way to socialise with friends on a night out.

Only recently I attended another painting class in which I learnt how to paint the London landscape and with me not painting a serious piece of artwork since school but only maybe the odd stick man with my niece I was prepared to grab a paintbrush and take things seriously, well slightly.  I loved the class so much and was quite impressed with my piece of art at the end of it.

This time around I was invited down on a complimentary basis via Paint Republic to try out one of their fun ‘paint and sip’ classes.  I went along with my friend Laura to one of their classes to paint flowers. Why flowers? well I love flowers and have always felt inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s art work of his famous painting of sunflowers.

So the challenge was on could I be the next Vincent van Gogh?
