This week I will be:
- playing Dumb Ways to Die. This game is absolutely hilarious and was borne out of an Australian public service announcement campaign launched by Metro Trains in Melbourne in 2012 to promote rail safety. The game features some really cute but accident-prone characters that you have to help survive imminent death (sometimes rail related) and also comes with a catchy theme tune. The campaign was so successful that it went viral and has spawned its own toys.
- munching on the delicious subs from street food vendors Sub Cult (putting the soul in your roll!). Named as one of Time Out‘s favourite sandwiches in London, the brioche bun comes full of decadent ingredients of your choice. Try the Sub-Marine for scallop, pulled pork and calamari greatness or the Rodeo with 28 Day Hung Beef and provolone cheese. Monitor their twitter feed to find out where they’re serving near you.
- enjoying the best oat milk latte ever at my (other) local coffee shop on Lower Marsh, Love & Scandal. Great place for hanging out on a Saturday morning as they have all of the main broadsheets, perfect coffees, teas, cakes and delicious brekkie sorted as well as wifi.
- booking my tickets to the newly opened British Museum of Food during their 3 month experimental stay in Borough Market. The museum was founded by Bombas & Parr, two of London’s culinary architects and is the world’s first cultural institution entirely devoted to the history, evolution, science, sociology and art of food. Through its exhibits and experiences the museum aims to showcase the most exciting elements of food. The idea is to help change peoples’ lives by helping them consider what they eat and to spread knowledge around nutrition and health and to recognise its role in culture. (To be honest they had me at ‘food’… )
