Adrián Villar Rojas: Today We Reboot The Planet @ Serpentine Sackler Gallery / until 10th November 2013


Tue–Sun 10:00–18:00 closed Mon

@ Serpentine Sackler Gallery, West Carriage Drive, Kensington Gardens, London W2 2AR

Free entry

For his first exhibition in the UK, Villar Rojas re-casts this potent mix of myth and imagination responding to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, a former ammunition store (The Magazine) built in 1805. Taking inspiration from the brick-vaulted Powder Rooms that sit at the centre of the building, the artist will re-imagine the architecture and original purpose of the new Gallery at the very moment it is revealed to the world for the first time. Drawing on the artist’s self-declared fascination with topics as diverse as science fiction, comic books, popular music and quantum mechanics, his often fantastical sculptures appear as relics from an invented antiquity or an imagined future.

Wild West Beginners’ Bike Polo Tournament @ Westway Sports Centre / Saturday 12th October 2013


From: all day (09:00 registration)

@ Westway Sports Centre, 1 Crowthorne Road, London W10 6RP

Free to take part

New players and teams welcome.

Bikeminded (in partnership with the London Hardcourt Bike Polo Association) has been hosting weekly Open Sessions at the Westway Sports Centre and they’ve been so popular that they’re now hosting their second annual Wild West Beginners’ Bike Polo Tournament.

Cyclists can go as teams or individual players and take part completely for free. Bikes and mallets will be available for loan. It’s a beginners’ tournament so players have no more than a year’s experience playing polo (to be fair to everyone). If you’re not sure of the rules, have a look at bike polo rules.

As with cycling in general, there’s a fantastic spirit of community at the heart of bike polo games, so even if you’ve never played before, go to the Open Sessions to watch or even have a go to see if you like it.

Open Sessions are free to attend are held on Thursdays at Westway Sports Centre from 19:00-22:00

Kamique Bar @ Covent Garden


Opening Times
Mon – Wed: 12:00 – 23:00
Thu – Sun: 12:00 – 00:00

@ Kamique Bar
63-66 St Martins Lane,

Entry: £FREE

We were invited down to check out a new bar in Covent Garden, hearing the name Kamique Bar we thought we was going to a Hawaiian themed shack. This was far from the case, the venue reminded us of a spruced up Yates.

We sat in the back which was really really RED, it was comfortable and was a great place to chill. The music had us thinking otherwise, wanting to bounce up, ready to party the night away.

We ordered a round of their famous Mojitos which I have to say were really good (try the cucumber mojito, flaming passion fruit and strawberry madness). Food was also ordered however this did not result to be on par to the cocktails, the phad thai was extremely bland and the steak was given well done when ordered medium rare. Service was really slow and at times the order was forgotten.

The majority of the drinks especially the mojitos were prepared well its a shame the food didn’t match.
The prices are what you would expect of a west end bar. It’s definitely worth visiting during happy hour every day 17:00 – 20:00

Kamique is a great place to grab a few drinks before going out, lively with a vibrant place out back to relax after a hard days work.
