The Latin-inspired bar, Revolucion de Cuba, is a popular nightlife spot in Cardiff. My regular followers are probably aware of my rum obsession, especially the dark and spiced varieties. So, when I heard you can have a bottomless brunch in a rum bar, I knew where I was heading.
Invite. Fancy a festive catch up with Cardiff food and lifestyle bloggers? Yes, please?! Earlier this week I headed to Thomas Restaurant at Future Inn Cardiff Bay. It is not often I get to be a customer, so was looking forward to trying the food and drink and experiencing the Christmas vibes.
On Saturday 30th November 2019, I went to the matinee performance of Jack Whitehall: Stood Up in the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and left with my cheeks hurting from the laughter. I was disappointed to read the scathing reviews of the tour; the Guardian gave it one star saying, “The comic, who doesn’t seem to have any interest in people or the world, puts on a weak showwith anecdotes that ring untrue”. The Metro gave it two stars and Chortle only 2 and a half.
It is the most wonderful time of year… or, at least, it is supposed to be. Yet, for many, Christmas can equal excess expectations and extreme expense or indulgence. Has it all become a bit too ‘extra’ for most of us?
Fortunately, 2019 looks set to be the year that ‘excessmas’ takes a back seat. Research reveals a backlash against the Insta-perfect of prepping, cooking, gorging and one-upmanship shopping.
