Trim tipples

London Fashion Week (February 15-19) needn’t mean taking a break from fun to concentrate on your figure.

Those thoroughly decent folks at Drake & Morgan have put together a collection of calorie-conscious cocktails for would-be supermodels keen on having a good time.

You can bag all three of the special drinks (Negroni Campbell, Berry Hall and Heidi Plum) for £18.95 at either The Refinery on Bankside, The Parlour in Canary Wharf, The Anthologist and The Folly in the City and The Drift on Bishopsgate.

Valid until the end of LFW. Cheers!


Flippin’ good fun 

Get silly for a good cause this week at Greenwich Market, which is holding a series of Pancake Day races to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Try sprinting with frying pan in hand from 1pm on Tuesday, February 12 – teams of four can sign up for a £5 donation.

Fancy dress is encouraged and you could win some kick-ass kitchenware.

Plus there are pancakes on sale all day.

Email to register.

Pancake poetry

Talking of Pancake Day, one of our favourite crepe-centric menus this Tuesday comes courtesy of The Water Poet in Spitalfields.

Try their stilton, broccoli and Meantime Pale Ale option (£7.50 with side salad) for something totally unique, or get sweet on the warm rhubarb and amaretto frangipane with, in their own words, “proper thick custard” (£6). Yum.
