Because it is
a) Cocktail week;
b) Chocolate week
Get involved. Watch The Hendrick's gin bartender croquet Champions Cup or taste some Charbonnel et Walker chocolates.
Other events to check out include the Indesit Party Launderette 's first London event. Apparently this is the 'new craze taking the US by storm'- bring your grubby undies to the party, and then have a dance while they get clean and you get down and dirty with the DJs.In fact, they are having a VIP celebrity launch party on the 14th; sign up for the Run Riot e-shot to find out how YOU could be there.
One of my fave bands, the Palpitations are playing at The Hoxton Bar on Wednesday night . Lead singer Dani pictured above in a photoshoot I styled ages ago, photo by Holly Falconer.
And an internet find from my travels this week:
The Other Woman; a Stateside all female art collective- I'm especially fond of Laura Graham's work; see below.
