Good stuff and lots of it! Here’s the low down on some fine things to see, sip or savour – all of which I’ve recently come across and thought were worth sharing with you. Enjoy.
With its 700mm gooseneck flexible extension with a mounting clip on one end and a phone grasping clip at the other, my “Lazy Arm” mobile phone holder has been something of a Godsend since I picked it up from Genie Gadgets (suggested retail price of £8.95). If you need to access more than one screen at a time or to see what’s on your phone but have your hands free for something else, keep the Lazy Arm in mind.
Young’s Pubs turned a spritely 184 years old last week. I tagged along to one of the group’s best (and best loved) venues, The Ship in Wandsworth. It was a fun time in an excellent boozer. A few of my favourite pubs are in Young’s impressive portfolio. It was great to celebrate the milestone with the brand and enjoy a couple of London Stouts while doing so.
This “big red wine” is a flavoursome and silky blend of Tempranillo, Shiraz, Merlot and Garnacha An easy drinker and a safe bet for pairing with meaty meals, find it at Morrisons for around £7.
Here’s the quickie synopsis for Convenience, a new feature film opening in cinemas 2 October and starring Vicky McClure, Adeel Akhtar and Panthaki with appearances by Anthony Head and Verne Troyer: two convenience store robbers screw up the crime and end up working there for the rest of the night. It’s worth keeping in mind if you like hair-brained situation comedy.
