At this time of the year everyone sets about trying to alter bad habits, get fit, change their diet and all sorts of other virtuous shit. Having tried these things unsuccessfully for 27 years I thought I'd embrace my drinking habit rather than trying to suppress it.
One thing I really like about the beer industry at the moment is how creative brands are getting with their can designs. The bright colours and odd imagery on there is really eye-catching, and whilst you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, it really adds something to the situation. We were having an end … Continue reading Quick Can
Born Ruffians, a band I've been a fan of for 10 years were playing in Hackney and Esther kindly came with me to see them. They were playing in Oslo, a venue above a bar/restaurant near the train station.

I even questioned whether or not to even put this beer on the list as I just couldn't finish it. … Continue reading Foodies Festival
One of my favourite bands at the moment Car Seat Headrest were playing The Roundhouse in Camden and I was desperate to go. I convinced Esther to join me using a variety of tactics including playing their music near constantly and begging. Fortunately, it didn't take too much effort. We clocked off work and transported … Continue reading I’m so sick of… Fill in the blanks
May weather was spoiling us a bit. Despite another post-cricket related hangover, we decided to pop out into London and enjoy the sun. Esther had her eye on Maltby Street market in Bermondsey to kick the day off. It's a bustling, vibrant street with lots of food and booze to try. After doing a length, … Continue reading Bermondsey + Tower Bridge
