This Week We Have Been . . .
…trying out the latest London burger joints at Covent Garden’s new Shake Shack. The bar gets a massive thumbs up from us with its delicious burgers and great crinkle-cut fries, but make sure you top it off with a Concrete shake for an intense food coma!
…exploring the weird and wonderful photography of Lee Friedlander in his excellent retrospective book by the Museum of Modern Art. It covers everything from street photography, self-portraits, landscapes and nudes – across a massive 480 pages. Well worth a look!
…exploring Israel. Travelling from North to South in 10 days, we partied on a beach bar in Tel-Aviv, floated in the Dead Sea, climbed Mount Masada to watch the sunrise, met Israeli soldiers patrolling at the West Bank border, rode camels through the Negev dessert and finished in Jerusalem placing a wish in the Wailing Wall.
…laughing our socks off at Book of Mormon. This hysterical musical from the creators of South Park – Matt Parker and Trey Stone – really is as good as it’s cracked up to be. We were laughing from the outset and giggling and gasping with shock. As you might expect (given the South Park heritage), politically correct it is not, but if you’re not easily offended, as it really is all just jolly good fun and the perfect way to lift the mid-week blues, we suggest you get yourself down to the Prince of Wales Theatre.
