Häagen-Dazs Master Ice Cream Academy: Free Ice Cream Fun at Bloomsbury Square Today!

I dropped by Bloomsbury Square yesterday and had a great time. Already a fan of Dan’s doings at Duck & Waffle, I loved getting to sample his peach melba Champagne float. The event was my second encounter with Professor Smith and I was just as amazed and inspired as I was the first time. Rose’s blog, The Londoner, had been completely off my radar until the event. But to have teamed up with Dan, I reckon her site’s worth taking a look-see at. Maybe I’ll do that now while you make plans to get over to Bloomsbury Square, WC1A 2NS today between 11am and 6pm.

Review: Mark Little #SecretMeetings at the Museum of Comedy

Olivier award winning Mark Little had his small audience of “comrades” in stitches for most of the show with astute and politically charged observations presented in a madcap if thoughtful manner with an ample dose of off the cuff and self effacing improv alongside plenty of zany antics ensuring nothing was taken too seriously.

Yoshitomo Nara at Dairy Art Centre

Yoshitomo Nara: Greeting from a Place in My Heart at Dairy Art Centre in Bloomsbury presents a great opportunity to get a good long look at art that’s as adorable as it is dastardly: like cooing over a cute cuddly kitten tearing apart a toy mouse or jotting down a nightmare on a pastel notepad.

Every Angel has a Dark Side: Julian Schnabel at the Dairy Art Centre

Every Angel has a Dark Side, Julian Schnabel’s first major solo exhibition of paintings in the UK for nearly 15 years, opened today at the Dairy Art Centre in Bloomsbury. The show’s on for a couple of months and if you get a chance to swing by, I reckon you shouldn’t pass it up. I certainly considered the press preview I attended Thursday morning to be the first of hopefully a few more visits at least to see this excellent and brass-necked exhibition. Continue reading
