Bingo & Burgers

You heard right.  Bingo.  I love bingo  :) When I first mentioned to my friends sometime last year that I would very much like to go try bingo at one of the completely dodgy looking bingo halls in London, I am reasonably sure they thought I was joking.  However, I was not.  It's my kind of gambling.  Cheap drinks, old ladies and a whole lot of sass.  Those bitches are SERIOUS.  (See below)

Now my friends actually do enjoy going with me to bingo every now and then.  I won £60 once.  And nothing since.  But that little glimmer of hope is what keeps me going back and I assume what keeps these kinds of places in business.

It had been a while, so my friend and I grabbed our 'lucky' dabber pens and headed to the hall, where we won no money whatsoever but did some excellent people watching.

We then decided to reward our unluckiness by getting burgers at the nearby Hache in Camden.  I went for a classic cheeseburger and she hit up a veggie version.  Extra perk: new brioche rolls.  I opted to attack with a knife and fork and was somehow able to manage it without making a mess of the situation.  Big yum.

I am going back again this week.  Everyone send me some good vibes...momma needs a new pair of shoes!

I heart Guerilla Burgers.

It has come to my attention that I haven't been talking about burgers half as much as I should be.  Though I am not yet back in London, the best of the 'Burger Seasons' has begun and it would be against my best judgement if I didn't give a delicious shout out to what I consider to be the best burger joint in town, Guerilla Burgers.

All I needed to hear when reading a little review in a magazine on a few new London restaurants was 'burgers and margaritas'.  Shut up.  If I could get away with eating and drinking one thing for the rest of my life without being accused of being a fat drunk would be burgers and margaritas.  And the first time I made my way into the quirky cool doors of Guerilla Burgers, I totally fell in love.

The music is great (but loud, get over it).  The servers are so friendly you forget at times that they aren't actually old friends of yours.  The atmosphere is chilled out.  And the food and drinks...ohhhhh the food and drinks  :)  There is an amazing list of burgers which you can choose either beef, turkey or chicken burgers, as well as some vegetarian options that could change a carnivore in a hot minute.  My personal fav?  Cheddar BLT Burger with sweet potato fries and MARGARITA JUG.  And if you're feeling saucy?  There is a brownie sundae situation that is nothing to turn your nose up at...

And they don't just do burgers, so those of you who have a different taste, there are hot dogs, fish tacos and great salads.  Listen, just get down there and have a great night out.  If it's a date or a big group of friends, you're going to have a great time, I promise.

Burgers and Nails. For serious?!

For VERY serious.  I am not sure if I am more jealous of the amazing manicures in this blog or the supporting burgers.  And I ate a burger approx. 3 hours ago...so that says a lot.  Something for the chicks (and dudes who like manicures) and something for the dudes (and chicks who love a burger).

Burgers and Nails.  It's a blog.  Again...for serious.
