Friday, April 18th: It’s Record Store Day, when thousands will descend into independent record stores all about the country for in-store performances, special releases, and street parties. It's described as “Christmas for geeks”, but non-geeks are also welcome. Watch their awesome movie here
Friday, April 18th: Morning Gloryville is organizing a 12-hour sleepover lock-in party. That’s right, have a chill Friday night, sleep, and wake up to a coffee-fueled dance-a-thon. They’re also promising a “human massage chain”, so there’s that, too. Head here for info/tickets.
Friday, April 18th: Head to the "Mississippi Delta" for a night of blues, voodoo, and bourbon with The Wandering Chef. There’ll be five courses incl. BBQ’d salt brisket w/ crispy onions and buttermilk ranch; po-boy sliders with soft-shell crab, smoked chilli & roast garlic mayo; and crawfish, pork belly & grits with bourbon, chipotle, and smoked tomatoes. Throw in a few picklebacks, and you’ve got no reason not to click here.
Saturday, April 19th: The Ship down in Wandsworth has teamed up with Flat Iron for the BBQ to end all BBQs.

Reserve your meat here
Sunday, April 20th: Regular pop-up Christabel’s Mad Hatters Brunch Party is back for an Easter Special, complete with dishes like scones with cheese & spiced honey, pancakes with bacon, toast with marmite and fried eggs, and a cocktail on arrival for everyone (it's also BYOB, to save £s).
