Glamour Glaze doughnuts at Krispy Kreme

What do doughnuts and London Fashion week have in common…Glamour?

I love doughnuts, they are probably one of my mine and my girlfriend’s favourite treats to indulge ourselves in when we are feeling bad.

Krispy Kreme’s are the crack cocaine of doughnuts and Glamour magazine have teamed up with them to produce the Autumn / Winter 2011 Glamour Glaze range of doughnuts billed as glossy, stylish and fruity

This season’s doughnut collection features the Strawberry Glaze doughnut, synonymous with the Glamour Glaze line, accompanied by a new Orange Glaze doughnut. The Orange Glaze has been created from trend predictions of the upcoming season from GLAMOUR’s fashion team, who noted the ‘70s and the bright colour influences as two key themes.

The new limited edition collection will be available at all Krispy Kreme UK stores and in-store cabinets from the 29th August until 2nd October. Single Glamour Glaze’s cost £1.35, or you could share amongst friends a dozen doughnuts packaged in a bespoke black Glamour Glaze box

I’m not normally a man for fashion but when doughnuts are involved…

I received an email the other day telling me about the World’s first early morning musical including a delicious bagel breakfast, I was intrigued and read on…

…The early morning show is Grease and you can catch a performance of the 1950s American high school hit show over a bagel breakfast for the first time ever.

The show has been condensed so you only see the best bits in a 20-minute bite-sized burst of entertainment

This is taking place on Thursday 24th March for early birds who fancy starting their day the New York bagel-way.

This unique performance will include four musical numbers – Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin’ and You’re the One That I Want – plus a finale. The special show will be enjoyed over a bagel breakfast. Not only is this a first for musicals, but it will also be one of the last chances for Londoners to see the show as it moves on tour across the UK.

The early morning musical starts at 0830 at the Piccadilly Theatre – the home of Grease for the past three years – and you can get your hands on two free tickets for you and a friend by emailing your interest to musical@breakfastbagels.com.

Doors will open and a bagel breakfast will be served from 0800.

See you there!

Shake Rattle and Bowl is a club night with a difference. It’s held at the Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes beneath the Tavistock Hotel. It is London’s most unique retro clubnight, with dancing, bowling, cinema, diner and karaoke!

The night is not super cheap but it is different from the norm and lots and lots of fun, the music encompasses 50’s and 60’s Rock n Roll, Soul, Motown, Girl Groups, Freakbeat, Psychedelia and Ska and the venue has 50’s retro themed bowling lanes, a nice big dancefloor and stage, a diner that serves delicious 50’s themed food (the giant pizzas are amazing!), karaoke booths, table football, pool, arcade games (duck hunt) and even a free cinema.

Many of the people attending dress up in 50’s clothing for the night and really get into the swing of things.

Shake Rattle and Bowl is held on the first Saturday of every month from 7pm – 3am

Entry to Shake, Rattle & Bowl is £7 on the door (free before 7), £5 for members or NUS. However, if you are going in a large group you should contact them for a concessionary party guestlist.

On the first Thursday of every month galleries and museums in East London open their doors late for new exhibitions and your chance to see amazing art, culture and events after hours. There are over 100 galleries and museums open until 9pm on First Thursdays there will always be something free to do and exciting things to see.

At exhibition openings there is normally some free food and alcohol which I think can help you appreciate the art even more
