I wasn’t familiar with the story and this production brought me to tears 4 times in 3 hours. … Continue reading Death of a salesman – Opening Weekend

Some of the roast I have tried, were not the best to say the least…no flavours, questionable quality of the meat, boring side dishes… But, then I went to Hack and Hop last weekend and my faith was restored a little bit. The place is hidden in a little street close to Blackfriars station and St. Paul’s Cathedral. They have amazing selection of ales, beers … Continue reading Sunday Roast – London
