Every so often, an evening takes you by surprise. Such was the case with a recent dinner at City Social. Between beautiful views of the city, artfully styled entrees and delicious wine, it’s been awhile since a Thursday night dinner has been so elegant – for this blogger at least!
Girl’s night is a treasured tradition among my group of friends. We each take turns planning fun night’s out all over London, with each evening completely different from the previous ones. For our most recent girl’s night, we went to Little Italy in Soho. From classic Italian dishes, to an unexpected magic show and a crowd ready to work off their meal with lots and lots of dancing, this venue has a lot to offer – and then some!
I have a confession to make. Up until recently, I had never been to a birthday party for a dog before! So, when I was invited to a 10th birthday party for my dear friend’s dog, I was very excited. From the venue to the food, doggie treats and more, the party was fabulous! Planning a doggie birthday party? Take inspiration from my friend’s soiree!
As an American expat in London, one of my favorite Sunday rituals is brunch. A time to gather with your girlfriends, catch-up and gossip a bit. Upon moving to London, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there are tons of great spots for brunch, including Jackson and Rye in Soho.
Interestingly, Jackson and Rye describes itself as, “Bringing a flavour of the USA to London.” However, when presented with this delicious coffee, one has to feel like J&R is bringing its own distinct style to the table.
When booking dinner plans with a friend visiting London, we decided to try Sticks’n’Sushi in Covent Garden. Between the friendly service, comical menus and delicious food, it’s definitely a solid spot for a date night, or catch-up with friends.
