Yabba dabba do let’s bowl – Queens

Went along courtesy of Queens to experience their newly branded place for a game of bowling, iceskating and some food from MEATliquor.

Chocolate heaven – Pierre Marcolini chocolate pop up

Today I attended Pierre Marcolini chocolate pop up event at Carousel in Marylebone, to see Pierre Marcolini latest winter festive collection.  To be honest I have never heard of Pierre Marcolini before or of his chocolates which surprises me as I am a fan of chefs, bakers and chocolatiers.

Open Sesame – Secret Cellar: Brendan Rodrigues

Secret Cellar really is a secret.  Once entering the bar area I was slightly confused where the theatre was as all I could see was a bar and tables. So I went to the bar to ask where is the theatre and they said I had to wait to see. The whole bar area is quite unique with its slightly gothic feel of gargoyles statues and other unique décor set in around the bar. There are also seating areas all dotted around in unique secluded areas making it feel a bit more special if you are in a party of approx. 6 to 8 people. I especially loved the tree house which featured stained glass windows within the area. Continue reading

Let’s save home and country – Escape Plan: The Battle for Britain

The story is that we are in the depths of August 1940 and the Luftwaffe have launched a resurgent attack on Britain and we are the only survivors in the bombed airbase that we are situated in.
