Things to do This Weekend | January 8-10

Looking for something to do this weekend? This is your definitive guide which will come every week, telling you what’s happening this weekend. As you know, this can range from one off events, long running events, or just cool places or good clubs to visit.

Christmas is officially over, so you’ve probably had your fill of chocolate, mince pies and turkey. So why not head over to Wunderlust at the Big Red.

This is on Friday, and is described as having “a seasonal menu, local beers, natural wines and artisan cocktails in and around the double decker. There’ll be DJs until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays so expect a foodie party.”

Check out their website for more info.

Staying on the theme of food, we have Forza Winter at the Peckham Rye.

“Served alongside woodfired porchetta and the English winter’s most beautiful highlights – including romanesco, pumpkin, turnip, kale, pears, chestnuts – plus fresh pasta, pudding and a mug of hot booze. This menu is pure wintry indulgence. “

At the time of writing, Friday is sold out but tickets for Saturday are still available. They will also be holding this event every weekend until the end of the month, giving you ample time to check this event out. This event starts from 7.30PM, and will cost £35.

If it’s a film you’re after, what better than Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort, The Hateful Eight? It seems to be reviewing well, unsurprisingly. Tarantino had a bit of a wobbly spot with Kill Bill 1 & 2, but it seems he’s back on form.

The Hateful Eight has a rating of 8.1 on IMDB, a rating of 69 on Metacritic and a rating of 74% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Hateful Eight is a bit hard to find in the UK, but you can see a list of Odeon cinemas showing it here.

If you’re after a party to shake off the “going back to work” blues, then why not check out Club Du Fromage.

“Started by ex-gangster Fat Tony and now run by his half-wit son, Slow Alfie, this is the club that time forgot.

Bring your dancing shoes (you will need them) and let Slow Alfie and the Club de Fromage performers entertain you on a bumpy trip through the musical decades!”

This club is on every weekend at the O2 Academy Islington, and costs £8, or £6 before midnight.

Normally, I’d round things off with a look at the gigs and any worthwhile alternative nights taking place, but there aren’t any.

There aren’t any metal gigs on this weekend, nor are there any metal nights I haven’t already mentioned several times. If you’re after a recommendation, there are plenty of options listed in my previous articles.

Whether you go out, or decide to stay in and recover after the first week of work, have a great weekend!things-to-do-this-weekend-18th-september
