Thursday, Thursday, Thursday. It’s a love-hate kind of day. It’s awesome because it’s almost the weekend, but there’s still another whole day and a half to go before those sought after days of freedom. But, you can keep spirits high by planning your weekend using our guide of the five best things to do this weekend – it’s looking like it’s gonna be a pretty busy one with lots of wacky and fantastic things to get up to!
1. Disco Soup at Borough Market
What the heck: Here at Eatupp, we’re very anti-food-waste and exceptionally pro waste-reduction, which is why we thoroughly recommend getting yourself down to Disco Soup this Sunday. Disco Soup is a celebration of food and music, where everyone there will make a soup out of excess food – food that would otherwise go to waste. Oh and the food will be prepared in time to some banging beats provided by on-site DJs
Where the heck: Market Hall, Borough Market
When the heck: Morning sesh, 12:30, evening sesh 6:30, Sunday 10th April
How much tho’: FREEEE – just remember to register first!
2. Watch the Grand National
What the heck: It’s the betting event of the year, where seasoned gamblers and absolute ninnies alike put money down on a great big silly horse race. Always a guaranteed thrill. The more you bet, the more there is at stake, the more exciting it is! Disclaimer: Eatupp does not encourage the recreational activity of gambling nor the dangerous activity of horse racing
Where the heck: Wherever you like, your local pub will do, or you could get yourself to somewhere fancy and horse-themed like The Running Horse in Mayfair
When the heck: 5:15pm, Saturday 9th April
How much tho’: However much you’re willing to throw away on it
3. London Coffee Festival
