    Behind the Brand: Peablossom – Corking Comedy Cabaret

    Last week a friend of mine hosted a comedy evening for Childreach International, and if I’m honest when she told me all the acts were performing for charity I was a little sceptical. I now realise how utterly ridiculous that was as: a) all the acts were amazing, and b) one of the acts was comedy cabaret group PeaBlossom.

For some reason my little finger crept into the corner of my mouth like Dr Evil and I then impersonated him as well. My customer enjoyed these impressions and my Manager did not. Win win.…

It is the true warrior who can master both….and surpass the result.” – T’ien T’ai “Nothing is so strong as gentleness. Nothing is so gentle as real strength.” – Frances de Sales “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Buddha  In the seemingly everlasting battle of the sexes, it is all too often suggested and believed that males are the stronger of the two. From an anatomicalstandpoint, you would…

    Electric Dog Brixton – Sustainable Sausage Sourcing

    Electric Dog is a high quality hot dog joint based in the heart of Brixton Village. They’re open Thu, Fri and Sat evenings from 6:30-10:30pm. Priding themselves on sourcing the best quality meats for their range of artisan hot dogs, they searched for the best 100% British pork bratwurst sausage and the best German frankfurter. All hot dogs come with an array of toppings and sauces and are in a soft brioche bun. The pork sausages are made by Native Breeds, one of the UK’s leading charcuterie producers, who source local, British, rare breed pigs. The sausages are smoked with…
