Born In The 80s: Cocktails at Rub

Last week I dragged my buddies from UNiDAYS and our photography club Snap Collective (go follow us on Insta!) to Rub as they’d invited me down to try their new 80s themed cocktails. Every month we have a new theme for our photography club and for April it’s food & drink! Obviously, this is my favourite subject to talk about, photograph, blog about, everything, you guys know that. I love food, I’m a fat kid inside so whenever I have the chance to review food and drinks, I jump at it.

Speed Date With The Swedes!

If you’ve heard of Midsummer in Sweden then you’ll know that they seriously know how to party and celebrate this occasion. We’re talking food, drink and lots and lots of flowers, it looks simply beautiful in the summer sun! Rekorderlig Cider have put on a free Swedish pop-up festival on their very own vessel, the Midsommarstång! It will be popping up on weekend’s throughout July on London’s waterways, namely Paddington Basin, Granary Square Kings Cross and Olympic Park where guests can immerse themselves in Scandinavian culture, food and drink. Sounds like a pretty fab weekend activit to me, I can’t get enough of Scandi design so I’m sure I’d love the culture as a whole. The festival includes a pop-up party, bar serving Rekorderlig cocktails, a grill and chef’s table four course meal as well as the awesome Seven Flowers Swede Dating event. Screen Shot 2016-06-28 at 17.26.55 Super MTV babe Maya Jama (also Hello! Magazine’s Rising Star of 2016 FYI) headed down to the last dating event and got into the Swedish spirit and mingled with some singles. Rekorderlig Cider is definitely on course to bring true love to the streets (or waterways!) of London this summer. The next dating event, if you fancy heading down, is on 21st July at Paddington Basin.

“The Seven Flowers Swede Dating event follows on from a time-honoured Swedish folklore on Midsummer’s Eve in Sweden where it’s tradition for single women to pick seven flowers and place them in under their pillow at night, and they’ll dream of their future husband. With this in mind, Rekorderlig Cider is hoping the single men and women of London will find the partner of their dreams during the swede dating events!”

#RumpDay At Oaks Nottingham

Fancy a 8oz steak and chips for £10?  Oaks are offering just that on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Their awesome new offer is £10 for a 10 oz Porterhouse steak and chips and then for only £3.50 more you can add a glass of wine which is fab for a mid-week treat. I popped along this week to try their steak and since my last visit to Oaks, I was expecting it to be as great as last time. The steak was really good and the staff are so knowledgeable about the meats it’s really inspiring. If you’re a steak expert or a complete novice, I guarantee they’ll tell you something you don’t know about steak!

Revolucion De Cuba Pre-Opening Night #MoveToCuba

I’m always wary of ‘opening nights’ as usually they’re not actually as good as the restaurant or bar would be as they were actually operating in my opinion. I’ve been to my fair share of press nights that have been a disappointment where you leave hungry and having only had one watery cocktail. Revolucion De Cuba has completely reincarnated my enthusiasm for press events after their event this week. Pretty damn awesome!
