Badly Drawn Boy, Bruce Springsteen and Classic Album Sundays

BadlyDrawnBoyBruceSpringsteen-2
Oh Bruce Springsteen fans – a great bunch of people. No need to talk about things like the weather when you realise you’re in the company of another Bruce fan. So a few weeks back I was sitting in a room full of fans as part of Classic Album Sundays, a series of events celebrating…

Review: Burgershack, The Royal Oak, Marylebone, London

Burgershack4-2
London’s most prestigious burger blogger (er no, not me) has created his own burger menu.  Burgerac is my fav London burger detective, and his taste in music is almost as good as mine. He’s not a Bruce Springsteen fan (I’m working on it) but he is all about great tunes. What a relief! London now…

Review: Memmo Alfama Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal

MemmoAlfama2-2
The view. The view, the view, the view. Oh and the croissant loaf. Location  Alfama is regarded as a desirable part of Lisbon, where all the wealthy used to hang. They abandoned the area to fisherman in the Middle Ages (they were scared of earthquakes), but  sadly Alfama was one of the only parts of…

This all starts back in January 2014, when in the pit of one of Bruce Springsteen‘s Cape Town concerts I met a gorgeous Dutch girl called Ellen. Thanks to super advanced technology (the internet…

Steam Burger, Bodrum, Turkey

Bodrumburger3-2
“Steam burger.” It’s the new taste of the world, apparently. I had to try one. I’d say in the simplest form, the steamed burger is an amalgamation of a small flat burger and a calzone. But without any of the good parts. The bun was sickly sweet, and the patty was a thin little sliver…

Pizza Pilgrims – Best Pizza In London

PizzaPilgrims2-2
Fit pizza. Made by Springsteen fans. It’s time to talk about Pizza Pilgrims. As you may have seen, I’m verging on obsessed with Italy. Yes yes it’s a beautiful country, but the main reason I love it? The food. Carbs. I love carbs. Life is too short to not eat them. I can’t get to Italy…
