Only a week to go until Brazil vs. Croatia kicks off the 2014 World Cup, and at Savoo we have been struck down with serious football fever. On Saturday 14th England will be playing their first match against Italy, and if this isn't the perfect excuse for a party then we don't know what is! Here are our favourite Brazilian themed party, food and drink ideas from around the web to help you plan a bash to remember (even if England falls flat on its feet).
I know it's about to snow and I know the recent hot weather is nothing more than a blip but summer's just round the corner and that means a new set of sporting events are imminent - and if you, like me, are excited by that then read on!
When I used to play cricket the early season always presented mixed
emotions; delighted the season was about to start but upset by the fact
you had to wear two jumpers and that your hands experienced a pain men
can only presume comes close to child birth when you didn't time a catch
quite right. One on the end of the fingers in May is man pain. My
cricket playing days are few and far between now but, if I still played,
I would be looking for some good deals for new spikes, whites, bats and pads. Doing some research it appears these guys look to be offering some good free delivery at the very least.
Stella McCartney unveiled the much anticipated Olympic uniforms for Team GB yesterday and now the country is seeing red, just not on the uniforms themselves. In partnership with Adidas our very own London born designer Stella McCartney took all the red out of the Union Flag choosing instead to use the colour as trim. The designer is quoted as saying that this was a choice to 'modernise' the look of the flag but the patriotic masses are crying foul, loudly!
The talking will stop, the hype machine will splutter to a grinding halt and the various debates over form and fitness will mercifully end this weekend as the 2011 Rugby World Cup reaches the Quarter Final stage.
Last weekend was not a good rugby weekend – for me at least. Not only did I lose my own rugby match (a second half capitulation in the last 15 minutes saw the opposition run away with it) but Wales lost their opening rugby match in the Rugby World Cup against South Africa by a demoralising single point, too.
A single man in London who likes to spend but who likes to save even
First I would like to start with a 'rant'.Why is the weather so bad?It's mid July and it's freezing cold and wet –
not good for cricket or golf, two things I love.At the beginning of the summer I was
enthusiastic about my BBQ
and how much time I would spend creating healthy and tasty food while catching
some rays on the terrace but, as it happens, the BBQ has had hardly any use at
The weather forecast this week is not getting any better
either, which does not bode well for the test match starting on Thursday
between England and India at Lord's.More importantly, this does not bode well for The Man About Town as it's a four day week for me this week as I am
going to the test match on Friday (and Sat and Sun) with 11 mates!The last thing we need is a day in the rain
because this leads to excess drinking and early casualties.So fingers crossed the weather holds, we get
to see some cricket and we can pace our drinking!
