The Endurance in Soho has been housing When Mac Met Cheese for the past couple of weeks and yesterday we stopped by the pop up restaurant for a spot of lunch. With only three mac and cheese variations to choose from, ordering was easy and we both opted for “Carlos the Cactus” which included mozzarella and jalapenos. Topped with breadcrumbs and served up in no time at all “Carlos the Cactus” wasn’t as spicy as we were warned it was but just as we had hoped, was full of hot, gooey, cheesy goodness. After a short while we decided to place an order for the deep-fried Oreos and boy are we glad we did, those things were so much better than we could have imagined and it took a lot of willpower to fight our inner fat girls and resist placing a second order (have a look at our pictures below)!
Last night Tech returned to London, and with support from Akir and Hasan Salaam gave the people of our city a truly wonderful show at the Royal Festival Hall.A mistake we seem to be making a lot recently, we assumed that the 7.30 time printed on the tickets was doors opening (not showtime), and so we arrived at about quarter past 8, missing the supporting set. Completely annoyed at ourselves, and adamant we’d never make the same mistake again, we waded through the buzzing crowd to find our seats. And I can only imagine that his set was LIVE, because the atmosphere as we entered the hall was ELECTRIC and this was before Tech was even introduced on stage. I had honestly never felt so much collective excitement contained within one room before, but somehow it doubled when the main man came out.
Described as being about “two very different members of a less than pristine society faced with situations that neither of them know how to handle” Cul-de-Sac is the type of short film that gets to the point. In under just four minutes writer and director Connor Simpson succeeds in conveying a very powerful message, that nothing is ever as it seems, and leaves viewers wondering what happened before the camera started rolling and what may happen after. And it is that, as well as the beautiful black and white cinematography that makes for such great viewing. Check it out for yourself below:
