Not only is it the weekend, it's the BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND! Can you tell we're a tad excited at the prospect of three days off? If you're looking for a little inspiration on how to fill your glorious, sun-filled hiatus then look no further. As always, we've got it covered...
1. Celebrate Kensington Roof Garden's 75th Birthday
This west London private members club is throwing open their doors Ibiza style for their first ever day club; One Day. Sponsored by Tanqueray, enjoy Mallards Muse cocktails (summer in a glass!) while getting down to the beats provided by DJ Benji Boko, James Levey and Kate Elsworth all in a summery setting.
One Day will start at 1pm-8pm on Sunday 5th May, tickets are £15.00 in advance and £20 on the door, both include a Tanqueray cocktail on arrival.
2. Pre-order... The Impossible on DVD
This heart-wrenching account of a family torn apart by the 2004 tsunami scored Naomi Watts a Best Actress Oscar nomination. Props to Ewan McGregor for an equally compelling performance. Don't forget the tissues.
3. Listen to... Rudimental
Feeling the love this weekend? We are, so we'll be sure to crank up Rudimental's album Home. Emeli Sande, MNEK and Alex Clare all lend their them their pipes, but the highlight is Hell Could Freeze, their sobbing-on-the-dancefloor collaboration with Angel Haze.
4. Eat... Seafood!
Pull up a pew with views along of the Thames and sample the delights of the Savoy's new offering, Kaspar's Seafood Bar and Grill. We can't wait to try the lobster club sandwich in the restaurant's art deco inspired surroundings. Open seven days a week from 7am - 11pm, the Savoy's resident three-foot sculpted feline friend Kaspar will join tables of 13 - just to even things out of course.
Kaspar's, The Savoy, Strand, London WC2R OEU, 0207 420 2111
5. Read... Shift by Hugh Howey
We have been mesmerised with Hugh Howey's silo stories since we first laid eyes on book one in the trilogy, Wool. Set in a post-apocalyptic landscape, we find the human race living below ground in a silo with even mention of the 'outside' being forbidden. His follow-up Shift acts as a sort of prequel as we learn just how the silo came to be. We'd recommend reading Wool first but you'll want to have this one ready as we guarantee you'll be unable to put it down. Perfect sunshine reading, wouldn't you say?
