Staring into the bottom of my empty J2O bottle, my head begins to think up an excuse. Any excuse to get me out of there. ‘There’ being a pub up the road from my house. I am on a date. It’s been about 15 minutes and I am losing the will to live.
First dates are nerve-wracking, so I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. But he isn’t talking. He also looks nothing like his picture, which has annoyed me. If he isn’t looking at me in a creepy way, he’s staring at the floor. I feel as though I could end up as a victim on the Crime Investigation network in a few months time.
I can talk for Britain, but even I have absolutely nothing to say to this guy. The life has been sucked out of me through the awkward silence that has enveloped the room. This room can often be quite warm and cosy - n...
My name is Jessica, I am 29-years-old and I am a live-music lover and before this year, I had never been to Glastonbury. When I was younger, I couldn't afford it and I was just not enough of a die-hard music fan to a) save up and b) (more importantly) to deal with the wet, knee-deep-in-mud fields, lack of showers and camping. And the loos.
I’ve also had a slight fear of the vastness of the area. I mean what if you lose your friends and then can’t find them again because your phone’s run out of battery and you’ve had a few too many? Finally, holding me back was the fear of potential weirdoes that may be lurking round every corner having ingested every substance illegal or not, that they are able to get their hands on.
However, as I’ve got older I’ve got curiouser and curiouser until the onl...
Seriously, though? We get to choose between an array of savoury or sweet treats and enjoy them ALL DAY LONG. To say that we will be spoilt for choice at this event in Kings Cross on Saturday 18th July is quite the understatement. We have been drooling over the options on the list of KERB traders that will be cooking up a feast on the day.
2. FIZZY BOOZE...
When is it acceptable to drink before midday? BRUNCH.
Inlcuded in your ticket is not one, but two delicious beverages to wash down your pancakes with.
An Aperol Spritz will be sipped on arrival and then you are offered a complimentary glass of fizzy wine to keep you going for the day. We heart bubbles.
Saunter past the fountains of Granary Square and round to Stable Street. Just opposite the big screen and deckchairs set out for Wimbledon-watchers is where you will find Dishoom - a Victorian Warehouse turned 1930’s Bombay café.
Dishoom has been a firm favourite for foodies since they opened their doors to diners in Covent Garden in 2010, followed by another café in Shoreditch in 2012. Imagine my elation on hearing that their latest and largest space is just a few minutes away from my front door. Bonus.
The first thing that you notice when you step into Dishoom is how beautiful the décor is - vintage yet urban with cosy booths, whirring ceiling fans, a big hanging railway clock and mezzanine levels that you want to explore immediately.
