Sunday Links July 23rd

For the month of July, Cambridge’s artists have opened their doors in an event called Open Studios, where you can just walk into their work spaces and homes to look at their art. There are hundreds of artists doing this over our small city, and while I got my sister to rent a bike so we could cycle round the Mill Road area and visit about 10 places, since then I also visited Burwash Manor and a couple of other places near my house.

It’s been really good. The artists were wonderful and spent time speaking with my art-inspired sister, giving her advice and encouragement, and I picked up postcards where I could, to decorate my walls. I love living in Cambridge, there are so many amazing events like this.

My blog is taking somewhat of a back seat while I get through the ever growing list of blogs to judge for the Bloggers Blog Awards. I have one more week to get through them, and I want to do each blog justice, carefully considering each marking area without rushing.

New Brunch Menu at Hot Numbers

Cambridge favourite Hot Numbers has a new brunch menu and you know I was here first in line to try it out for you. I work so hard for my readers.

I’ve visited Hot Numbers only a couple of times, mainly because it’s ALWAYS the one that’s in the press; it was on a list from a major newspaper of best coffee houses in the UK, and it’s the go-to for pretty much everyone. While I do like to support the underdog, there are good reasons why Hot Numbers are the number one place. [Read more…]

Le Pain Quotidein, London

I know I usually talk more about brunch in independent places, but I wanted to write a quick post and give a shout out following some light brunching at Le Pain Quotidein. [Read more…]
