The all new way to give to charity

Camden’s Roundhouse is now serving four beers that allow punters to donate to charity just by drinking them. The independent music venue that prides itself on helping individuals to reach their potential and grow creatively by encouraging them to engage with the arts, is now also doing its bit for charity. The four beers are; Brewgooder, Hiver, Toast and Hibernation. Here is how you can help, simply by enjoying them… Brewgooder – The Brewdog brewery has joined forces with the campaign Brewgooder to make their 4.9% Clean Water Lager. 100% of the profits made from this beer is used to fund projects carried out by water charities in the developing world! Brewgooder aims to provide 1 million people with clean drinking water. So #DrinkBeerGiveWater! Hiver – Honey acts as an ingr

When we think of splashing out on a fancy home cooked meal, we go to Waitrose, or M&S or even Harrods if you are really going all out. I chose the second option and decided to try the dine in for two meal deal. Out of the selection, my eye drew towards the rosemary potatoes, flash steak, and the Sicilian lemon cheesecake. The excitement of going home to a fancy pre-made meal was too much too handle. Dinnertime comes around, and the potatoes go in the oven. The steak gets two minutes on each side and the cheesecake chills in the fridge. Food plated and without further hesitation, I tuck into the amazingly… bland and tasteless steak.

Why is the restaurant industry rife with sexual harassment? A popular thought is that it is down to the 'sex-role spillover theory'. This theory is specific to female restaurant staff and is defined as 'the carryover into the workplace of gender-based expectations for behavior that are irrelevant or inappropriate to work'. These gender-based expectations may then influence the way that some individuals interact with female members of staff. Waitress, aged 19. But what about male staff?

ABQ, situated in Hackney, is home to London’s very own Breaking Bad themed bar. At £30 a pop it sounds steep, even to hardcore fans of the hit TV series, so we thought we’d suss it out for you… Walking from Bethnal Green tube station, we had no idea what to expect. Then we saw it. A huge RV parked in a car park. No signs anywhere but this had to be it. “Sup, you here to cook?” a lady shouted at us from the open truck door. As we approached her she chucked fetching yellow boiler suits at us and told us to put them on. Walking up the stairs into the RV we were greeted with a high five from each of the people behind the bar. That was the second indication that it wasn’t going to be your average ‘out for drinks’ experience. As 90s tunes played, we were led to a table at the back of th
