Thanks to the Queen, London enjoyed a four day weekend bonanza last week. Slightly weary from waving flags, the nation is a bit partied out. But thankfully there’s some nice foody things and architecture to keep you entertained this weekend. Oh and also a free festival in Regents Park. We do like a party, we do.
Tea and biscuits
As a nation we like tea. And we like biscuits to dip in tea. So much so, there is a three day festival devoted entirely to the biscuit this weekend. There’ll be workshops on how to create the perfect biscuit, a tournament to see who is 2012’s Biscuit Champion and a tea dance on the Saturday.
8-10 June; 12-6pm; free; The Brunswick Shopping Centre, WC1N
Another weekend, another restaurant opens. This time it’s a Mazi in Notting Hill. Apparently it’s classic Greek food with a bit of a twist. I hope to see some plate breaking, and not from angry customers.
12pm-12am; mains from £15, 12-14 Hillgate Street, W8
At onefinestay, we’ve seen a fair bit of good architecture from our members’ homes. And as part of the London 2012 Festival, you can see more. The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion has been unveiled – designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei, the team behind the Beijing National Stadium.
Until 14 October; free; Serpentine Gallery, Kensington, W2
DJs, debates and much more at The London Green Fair this weekend in Regent’s Park. All about celebrating and reflecting on London’s green aspirations it sounds like a fun place for all this weekend. Just don’t drop your litter on the floor.
