GO TO A SPECIAL INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY EVENT AT CAROUSEL

Last year Clare Finney, an award-winning food writer, released her debut cookbook The Female Chef. This year, Carousel, a restaurant that hosts a rotation of exciting chef residencies, moved into a bigger and better space in Fitzrovia. Now, the two are coming together to celebrate International Women’s Day. From March 8th, they’ll be hosting five special events with five different incredible female chefs including Angela Hartnett, Masterchef’s Julie Lin, and Great British Menu contestant, Sabrina Gidda. The prepaid set-menu is £65 per person and a portion of each ticket sold will go to a women’s charity of the chef’s choosing. Book your spot here

HIT UP A WINE TASTING AT LONDON'S COOLEST CORNER SHOP

Half Cut Market is a ‘gourmet off-licence and mini-mart’. What does that mean? Well, instead of Daim bars and fish fingers—zero shade, we salute you Captain Birdseye—they have over 80 low-intervention wines on offer, 120 craft beers to choose from, and delightful restaurant produce like frozen handmade dumplings from My Neighbours The Dumplings. Over on York Road in Camden, Half Cut Market is also running a bunch of fun, boozy events this month, including a natural wine fest with their in-house sommelier on the 8th, a pastry stout beer tasting called Beyond Beer on the 15th, and on Saturday 26th Mystic Börek will be taking over the kitchen. Get excited. You can find all of the booking intel on their website

CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK'S DAY WITH FREE OYSTERS & IRISH COFFEE

It’s that time of year again. The time where your mate whose grandad’s ex-wife was Irish declares you all need to do something big for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, we wholeheartedly support your time-honoured tradition of getting significantly and profoundly drunk at Waxy O’Connor’s, but in case you’re in the mood to shake things up, The Sun Tavern is hosting a party on March 17th. A cocktail bar in Bethnal Green from the people responsible for one of our all time favourite bars, Discount Suit Company, there'll be a live performance from a Ceilidh band, guest DJ’s, free oysters, and plenty of whisky. Not ready to risk the drunken masses? You can also get their Irish Coffee kit delivered.

SHOP SOME OF LONDON'S BEST RESTAURANTS

We have often dreamed of a world where St. John is our local shop but there is only so much bone marrow and doughnuts one human is destined to consume in their lifetime. Anyway, food writer and photographer, Safia Shakarchi is hosting a pop-up grocery store in Coal Drops Yard for a week from the 15th March. You can expect goods from Bao, Planque, Café Cecilia, Quality Chop House, The Good Egg, and—dun dun dun—St. John Bread and Wine. In celebration of her new recipe platform, Another Pantry, there will also be a food still drawing event on the 17th for anyone who’s feeling particularly creative.

TRY TINIE TEMPAH'S FRIED CHICKEN

A rapper doing wraps. It writes itself really, doesn’t it? Tinie Tempah—actor, musician, the man responsible for us screaming ‘we bring the women and the cars and the cards out’ as students drinking loan sponsored shots—has only gone and decided to open a fried chicken shop. Truly, a man after our own hearts. RAPS is launching on Friday March 11th at Oxford Street rooftop, Willows on the Roof, with a short menu of fried chicken wraps and ‘peng wings’. You’ll also be able to order the wraps straight to your door, with delivery available everywhere from Shoreditch to Kilburn to Herne Hill.

CHECK OUT THIS PAUL MCCARTNEY EXHIBITION BEFORE IT ENDS

Everyone likes The Beatles. They pretty much invented one of our favourite pastimes— obsessively falling in love with musicians you’ve never met—so it would be rude not to stan. This month, you can participate in some old school Beatles hype by visiting Paul McCartney’s previously unseen personal archive at The British Library. The free exhibition includes lyrics and photographs from throughout his career and will be coming to an end on March 13th. Also, importantly, The British Library is a five-minute walk away from Dim Sum and Duck’s excellent xiaolongbao soup dumplings.

BOOK A FLOWER ARRANGING WORKSHOP FOR MOTHER'S DAY

Look, we’re not saying that mums hate those decrepit tulips you buy from a Tesco Express every Mother’s Day but… actually, no, that’s exactly what we’re saying. This year, treat her to an eco-friendly floral arrangement masterclass inside a bar instead. That’s right, flowers and bubbles. Just think of the sentimental Facebook status riddled with grammatical errors that’s coming your way. Bramble and Bloom will be taking over immersive South of France inspired bar, Figaro’s on the 26th and 27th of the month and tickets will set you back £90. Grab your tickets here
