The Food Report: Maray Review

Maray opened 3 months ago on Bold Street and ever since I saw their tagline – Falafel x Cocktails – I have been trying to make it there. Finally, an opportunity opened itself up this week and we made it along for a Tuesday night treat! The menu consists of small plates and big platters, all…

The Drinks Report: Cocktails

The last week seems to have been very cocktail themed for me – a quick sunny Bramble on Wednesday, giving my favourite recipe recommendations for birthday parties, Pimms Cups and unexpected gin on Thursday and then roof garden Pimms on Friday. That’s without even mentioning all of the wedding Pimms! I wanted to share some of…

The Weekly Report

Watching The Good Wife, it’s excellent! I also went to see the What We Did Next production of Carousel at The Unity on Wednesday. It was fantastic, conjuring up a perfect atmosphere and I’ve had the songs in my head all week. Listening to The Frozen soundtrack, all of the time, a whole lot of Brit Pop and The Archers, of course. Reading Nothing at…

The Weekly Report

Watching I started watching The Good Wife this week and I really like it! It almost makes me want to become a lawyer. Listening to I went to the Summer Ball at work on Friday so I’ve been hearing a whole lot of Clean Bandit and Foreign Beggars. Special mention for the Juicy DJs who played Blu Cantrell, Independent…

The Food Report: Farm Feast

This weekend I headed over the water to Bebington for a trip to Farm Feast. It promised to be a wonderful day full of food, drinks and music, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. After a surprisingly quick train ride we were keen to start the day with a pre-lunch snack; an amuse bouche if you…

The Weekly Report

Watching I’ve replaced my Masterchef consumption with Great British Menu. Arrested Development – it never gets old. Listening to Frank Turner, Metronomy, Little Roy, The Strokes, Black Keys, Black Ghosts, Woman’s Hour. Reading How to Deliver a TED Talk, lots of interesting stuff about careers here, and plenty of poetry. Writing Summer drinks recommendations and pizza party posts, plus pages and pages in my journal…

The Drinks Report: Summer days

Just like this week’s Food Report, I’ve decided to share a few of the things that I’ve been drinking this week. So, in no particular order… Once summer sets in, it’s never too long before I start to crave iced coffee. I’ve been making them at home, drinking them at work and unexpectedly picking them up…

The Food Report: Pizza party and Food Slam

Normally my Food Reports are on a theme, but I ate so much good food last week that I just wanted to share it all! First up, we went to Food Slam on Friday at Camp and Furnace. It was Light Night and we started with a Bollywood workshop and some singing before heading to…

The Food Report: Bakchich

    Last night I went to Bakchich on Bold Street for a little dinner and catch up with Kate. It’s pretty ridiculous that I haven’t been there before considering that I love any kind of street food and I especially love Lebanese food. We started out with some fresh mint lemonade. I continually rhapsodize about my…

The Food Report: East Avenue Bakehouse

It’s probably no secret to readers of this blog that I love brunch. So when a new place opens that might provide a brunch destination I’m all over it. East Avenue Bakehouse opened on Bold Street a couple of weeks ago (on International Women’s Day to be precise, for this is a women-led venture!) and I’ve…
