Mask Loves

We’re busy with more events this week, but we’ve managed to squeeze in a little time to explore the latest and greatest offerings. Here’s what we think is fantastic this week in London, and beyond.

 

Across the pond

All the rooms

Refinery 29 created 29 Rooms over in Brooklyn for a four day immersive experience, and it looks amazing. With nearly 30 artists involved, each room is design to inspire and excite visitors. It’s a little bit like a fun house, but for adults, and filled with the latest styles, trends and technologies. Today is the last day, so if you haven’t got a teleporter you’re out of luck, but they are setting up over in LA in December so if you’ve got a special Christmas trip planned you know where to go.

Pacman

NYC’s Chinese restaurant, Red Farm, is coming to Covent Garden and they’re bringing Pacman (in dumpling form)! We’re excited for the ‘super-charged dim sum’, but also the yuzu wasabi shrimps and that chicken salad.

Back to Blighty

Pergola is growing

Pergola are keeping things West with another venture due to open in January, this time they’re losing ‘pergola’ and going for Feast Canteen. Think Street Feast and Kerb, but in Hammersmith. They’ll be starting out strong with Breddos Tacos and Patty and Bun, and we’re pretty sure they’ll go from strength to strength.

Coming up at Carousel

Not only is Carousel an inspired foodie destination with visits from chefs across the globe, they also provide workshops-a-plenty. There’s terrarium sessions (remember when we did one?), yoga classes, calligraphy, pottery, dumplings… you name it they’ve got it. And if you miss the first workshop, they usually run another one a month later.

Love it or hate it

Marmite has pulled out all the stops on their latest campaign, they’ve dedicated the last 12 months to trials and tests and apparently it’s all genetic. You can go all out and buy the DNA kit for £90 (perhaps not), or you can do the free Taste Face test online. There’s also a series of adverts with happy/sad parents depending on whether their child is a natural lover/hater. However it still doesn’t explain the people (like us) who quite enjoy toning down the Marmite flavour with butter.
