on a Friday night! Tell us what your latest find is in the city by commenting

Visit
Little Social

When
hungry the guys from Pollen Street Social never fail to impress with their
new incarnation http://www.littlesocial.co.uk/
it’s a great little addition to the London restaurant scene.

Go bigger
at Greenwich festival

One of
London’s best kept secrets and some of the shows are not to be missed, our own
Michael Aldridge was blown away by Prometheus last year.  Don’t miss
2013 which promises to be even bigger. http://www.festival.org/festival/

Try the World’s first yoga run

A 5k run combined with 45 minutes of yoga followed by a brunch with a live DJ Set! Don’t mind If I do. http://www.gloanna.com/runinfo.html

Try the best dumplings in the south of London

What started in 2010 as a simple
supper club, turned into one of the best places to eat under the arches of
Brixton Village, now Mama Lan has opened new digs right next to Clapham Common
tube! Their Prawn King Prawn and Chinese Chesnut Water dumplings are to die
for! http://mamalan.co.uk/menu/

Wear an animal onesie to London Zoo lates!

It’s been around for a few summers
now, but it’s taken our team long enough to get over there and we did it in
style in animal onesies of course! We suggest you do the same. http://www.zsl.org/zsl-london-zoo/whats-on/zoo-lates/

Open Air cinemas – they are EVERYWHERE!

But forget your
Somerset House Films (they are SO last year) – this year it’s all about the Pop
Up Screens or intimate cinemas such as the Queen of Hoxton  http://www.rooftopfilmclub.com/
or Pop Up screens around town http://www.popupscreens.co.uk/ or  http://www.thelunacinema.com/

  Head East to Beagle – the
BEST Cocktails and Chips

With a large terrace where you can take some rays whislt sipping on some interesting
takes on cocktail classics and their triple dipped chips are the best. http://www.beaglelondon.co.uk/

Pride and Prejudice at the Regents Park Open air theatre

Set in beautiful and atmospheric
grounds, this adaption is bound to please many hopeless romantics. Surrounded
by trees full of fairy lights, the audience is encouraged to bring their own
picnic or, if DIY sandwiches aren’t really your thing, there is an onsite
barbeque and bar.   http://openairtheatre.com/production/pride-and-prejudice

Go out to the docklands for the truck stop

Truck Stop will be rolling back into
Wood Wharf on 1st & 2nd August. Each day features an awesome
collection of the UK’s best food trucks, with old fire engines, ambulances
and milk floats serving up everything from ribs to sushi.  http://www.truckstoplondon.com/
