What To Do This Weekend: See People Like Us and Go Ice-Skating
See… People Like Us
There’s a slew of films out this weekend - political Grassroots with Jason Biggs, horror-comedy Love Bites with Jessica Szohr – but our pick is star-studded People Like Us. Elizabeth Banks, Michelle Pfeiffer, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pine star in this drama about a man delivering a £150k inheritance from his late father to the sister he never knew he had. Gripping.
Seasonal ice-rinks are popping up all over so grab your chunky knits and get your skates on for the glide of your life. Our picks are the stunning Natural History Museum, with a cosy bar for a drink after, or Brighton’s Royal Pavilion rink with Jamie Oliver’s pop-up restaurant Fabulous Feasts.

Eat… Buddha Bar London
Knightsbridge hotspot, Buddha-bar opened just last night. Sampling the oriental twist on classic British food such as Venison Tataki and Smoked Duck and Foie Gras Gyoza is a must. Wash it all down with an ‘Oh My Dog’ cocktail with rose syrup, Pama liquor and white pepper infused Gin. Hello!

Watch… The Rolling Stones Charlie is my Darling – Ireland 1965
As arguably the greatest band of all time celebrate 50 years in the business, The Rolling Stones release this DVD of their 1965 tour in Ireland. Featuring never-before-seen footage, – including performances of “The Last Time,” “Time Is On My Side” and the first ever concert performance of (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, it’s remarkable the film was never released. Buy on DVD, Blu-ray and Super Deluxe Box Set now. www.charlieismydarling.com
Visit… Sensory Overload
Move over Edinburgh Festival, Glasgow is taking over as Scotland’s culture spot, thanks to their ten-day Sonica festival. Sonica, that’s ‘sound-art’ to us, feature various forms of art and music – theatre, opera, paintings, projections and installations, TED talks, a one-off laser show and ‘live performance piece’ from Turner Prize nominated Luke Fowler and Jean-Luc Guinnet. Bonkers but brilliant, we say.
Until 18 November, Glasgow, www.sonic-a.co.uk
