Weekend REVLry: 21st – 23rd October
We’re almost at the end of October and we know what you’re thinking – how the hell did that happen? As we’re all gearing up for Halloween and Bonfire night, it’s easy to forget about all the other great stuff that’s happening in the city. But that’s why we’re here for you. So put your computer down, stop searching for a sexy cat costume and get REVLing this weekend.
Friday | Mercato Metropolitano
Kick back on Friday night and head down to Borough to the newly opened Mercato Metropolitano. A former huge warehouse converted into an Italian food market that plays host to cookery classes and the pop-up Backyard Cinema. There’s really no better way to spend Friday night than eating pasta.
