On Friday night I'll stay East. I'll start my night at Beagle, my bar and restaurant in Hoxton, and keep an eye on things there before winding down with a few craft beers and and maybe a Pigeon & Prune Terrine and some Fried Baby Squid & Aioli (www.beaglelondon.co.uk). I'll then head down to The Nightjar (http://www.barnightjar.com/) for a few of their wonderful cocktails and some live jazz, and I might even stop in to see my friends at The Clove Club, (thecloveclub.com) on the way for one of the French 75s and a few of their fantastic bar snacks - probably some Mackerel with pickled Rhubarb and some Chicory with Hazelnuts.
On Saturday I am going to head to a vintage clothes market called Seek & Revive at Oval Space off Hackney Road and see if I can pick up any bargains in the early afternoon. Then it's preparation time for our krankbrother event on Saturday night - we have a big warehouse party also happening also in the Oval Space (tickets from http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?454103), so it's a quick turnaround and the production levels will be pretty high, so we will spend the day organising lighting, sound and other set up (www.krankbrother.com).
On Saturday night before the gig, we'll take the artists, Stimming and Daniel Bortz, out for dinner at Bonnie Gull in Fitzrovia, for some beautiful British oysters and probably their house special - the Paigton Kilo Cock Crab with Mayonnaise and Chips (www.bonniegull.com). On the way back east we'll probably stop in at The Zetter Townhouse for a few cocktails (www.thezettertownhouse.com), then on to krankbrother.
On Sunday, I'll wake up late and then head to The Anchor & Hope in Waterloo for some Sunday lunch. My little sister lives down there and it's a perfect place for a lazy Sunday lunch, with some Pinot Noir and British roast meats.
By the looks of things I might wake up with a headache on Monday.
