JUST EXPERIENCE – New to the V&A this month, ‘FOOD: Bigger than the Plate’ is a ‘multi-sensory’ exhibition that opens up conversations about deliciously sustainable ways of thinking and eating. The exhibition explores a plethora of innovative food-focused projects. For example, Bompas & Parr (the whacky and wonderful culinary designers) have given a talk on their passion, the future of food, as part of a series of featured events.
JUST ENTERTAIN – Caricature art dates back hundreds of years, its popularity dipping but never dying out. Recently, a new realm of entertainment has reignited the love for this quirky art form. The iPad Caricaturist offers digital drawings of guests at your event, instantly sending them for your posting pleasure.
JUST SEE – The venue that has caught our eye this month is Jack Solomons Club. Tucked away in the streets of Soho, this bar is a little piece of history with décor and an atmosphere that transports you back in time. Jack Solomons is named after the legendary promoter who owned the boxing club that once existed in its place. The venue is notorious for hosting a vast range of musical acts and is available for private hire. Why not consider this sophisticated establishment for your next soirée?
JUST TRENDING – Over the weekend one of the JustSeventy team visited Katzenjammers bar (a Bavarian Bierkeller style venue near Borough Market). The highlight of the evening was Oompah Brass, a five-piece brass band who put a modern spin on traditional Bavarian sounds. The group perform a fusion of various pop, rock and other well-known numbers, keeping their art entertaining and current. Their rendition of “Chase the Devil” by Max Romeo was a definite favourite and had the crowd singing along to the beat.
JUST EAT – Whilst following trends related to sustainable living, a new festival has sparked our interest this month. Through the end of September, London will champion food that has been grown in our very own city in the ‘Urban Food Fortnight’. The festival will feature a range of events such as foraging treks, DIY workshops and restaurant menus utilising local ingredients that prove homegrown goods can be abundant in rural and urban areas alike.
