Stuff We Like: Culture Maps, Pulled Pork and Festival Bags
For discovering our city:
Artist Jenni Sparks has teamed up with London based print collection Evermade.com to create the ‘definitive culture map of London’ – a beautiful hand drawn map it lovingly details London’s boroughs and neighbourhoods, highlighting unusual landmarks and quirky facts such as celebrity neighbourhoods and favourite local pubs to help us discover the hidden side to our wonderful city.
For our tummies:
Currently on our hit list…
Propstore – a café & bar on the South Bank which overflows with old scenery and props from past National Theatre productions – gaze at the crocodile from Peter Pan and Beauty and the Beast’s thought-catcher over a pulled pork sandwich.
The Seagrass – good honest British grub in a 19th century pie and mash house and best of all its BYOB!
The Last Days of Pisco – Peruvian food is having a bit of a ‘moment’ with Soho’s Ceviche getting rave reviews and hot on its heels is this Peruvian pop up in deepest darkest Dalston – Pisco Punch, sea bass ceviche and live music (hopefully not pan pipes!)
The Last Days of Pisco, Hackney Cypriot Association, 5 Balls Pond Rd, N1 4AX. Open 7.30pm – 1am, June 22-23rd, 29-30th, July 6-7th. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org. Cash only.
For ‘hands in the air’ festival fashion:
With festival season in full swing the Fever ladies have been on the hunt for the perfect festival bag. Criteria? Compact enough to free us up for maximum raving with room to fit in those festival essentials, easy to clean and super stylish of course. Imagine our excitement when we stumbled across these gorgeous saddle bags by Zatchels – made from festival friendly durable leather they’re hand crafted and come in a rainbow of colours (we’re lusting after the fluro ones to go with our neon pink Hunters.) Now, all we need is some sunshine and a cider!
