Red Market In Full Swing In Shoreditch

Posted in Going Out, Misc with tags , , , , , , on July 25, 2012 by ethemethem

We just had to return! This summer sees Red Market re-open for business with a variety of food stalls from Malaysian delicacies to authentic Turkish kebabs and a French crepiere (is that the right word for them?).

Red Market again features all the food stalls you’d expect from a food market with the added delight of a beach corner (complete with sand, deck chairs and hammocks), a licensed bar, and even DJ’s in the evening to get the party started. We love the mix and its a great way to spend your lunch hour or unwind after work.

Check out our gallery of quick snaps we took before the food tempted us away from the blogging:

Our good friends over at DesignMyNight know a thing or two when it comes to great new bars in town so we tend to listen when they speak. And speak they have – ‘Nightgames’ – London’s newest pop-up bar is coming and has really caught our eye… Question is, how do we get membership to the hottest place in town?!

Gold Vending Machine

Posted in Going Out with tags , , , , , on May 14, 2012 by Eray

Don’t you just hate it when you really want to buy that new DVD but you’ve run out of money?

Fear not for if you live in Dubai, you can now get Gold on the go.

This vending machine was spotted at the top of the Burj Khalifa right next to the gift shop. At first glance you would think it was just an ATM made out of gold, but its not, its a gold ATM.

Not sure why I found this so funny but thought I would share.

Surely if you have a credit card and want gold, you wouldn’t pay £15 to get to the top of the Burj to buy it?

Cigar Smoking Secret Spot in London

Posted in Cigars, Going Out with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2012 by Eray

It’s been a while since we posted anything so firstly a massive apologies on behalf of the Cut the Cap team.

We’ve had a lot going on, however we haven’t stopped doing what we do best:

Going to events, catching live music, going to see new films and above all smoking some fantastic cigars.

Last weekend, London saw freakishly warm weather for March and I was fortunate to be introduced to a secret cigar smoking spot in east London that would normally go unnoticed.

A stones throw from Royal Albert DLR station, you will find a perfect view of London City Airport, across a lake (I think it is anyway), which gives a perfect view for any cigar smoker.

As we parked ourselves we were treated to seeing planes land and take off every 5-10 minutes, giving you an idea of how big these planes are that are taking off in front of you.

It’s a peaceful area with grass seating, benches and a walkway for the active person in you.

We chose to sit at the bench with what can only be described as a ‘Mannic’ (Mans picnic). Few snacks and a beverage to keep hydrated throughout the smoke.

The cigar choice: Montecristo Number 2

Length: 156
Format: Piramide
Ring guage: 52

The Cigar is considered one of my all time favourites. A consistent smoke throughout, great flavours and not to overpowering. This is a cigar I recommend time and time again to novices and for keen smokers alike.

As for the view, check out the pics below, and I hope to see you there in the future.
