The Weekender – London – 6th-8th September


As I sit and write this post from a very grey and rainy Marylebone it looks like this time summer might really have ended. Nonetheless, we’ve got everything you need for a busy weekend in our great capital, regardless of the rain!


London’s festival of meat and BBQ takes place on Saturday 7th September at the Tobacco Docks, E1. Some of the biggest names and chefs will be there to provide a range of meaty dishes for visitors – including Sam Daffin of Marylebone’s own BBQWhiskyBeer, who also recently led BBQWhiskyBeer to a win at Ribstock for their (you guessed it), ribs. Tickets available online.
