1) Go To The Amy Winehouse Exhibition
Thanks to the involvement of Amy’s brother Alex, this exhibition featuring unprecedented access to the singer’s artefacts such as her first guitar, photographs of family Bar Mitzvahs plus the infamous vintage bar from her house. A must see for Amy fans.
2. See The Bling Ring
Sophia Coppola sprinkles her restrained magic on the real life tale of the LA teens who robbed various houses of the rich and famous. Emma Watson stars (and Paris Hilton and her house) make hilarious cameos.
3. Listen To Waxahatchee’s Debut Album
Alabamian Katie Crutchfield aka Waxahatchee channels those female-centric, serrated edged 90s acts like Liz Phair, The Breeders and PJ Harvey, whilst lyrically cutting at the jugular.
4. Eat At Restaurant 1701
With a number of eclectic, international influences (Persian, Greek and North African) the chefs at Restaurant 1701 have created an eclectic range of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner that celebrate Jewish cuisine. There are Terrines, Couscous dishes plus a dessert menu to die for (oh hello, Orange Blossom Semolina cake…).
Read Note To Self by Alina Simone
It’s been likened by Sheila Heti’s How Should a Person Be? and with good reason. This crisp, Zeitgeist-y novel has the same note of knowingness about it, as lead protagonist Anna Krestler flits about in her quarter century crisis on the net “reading about that new underwear that prevents cameltoe”, surfing Craiglist ads and musing on life coaches and unemployment.
