Be careful gentlemen, I’ve just heard that Hendrick’s have been informing ladies about the rules of courtship through their Ladies School of Nuptial Conquest and School for Scoundrels. Apparently on the 29th of February each leap year, the normal rules of courtship are reversed, and women may freely pursue and propose to gentlemen of their choice. [...]
Sometimes it’s good to get outside your normal comfort zone. Whilst I’m no stranger to eating out alone, it’s a slightly different experience when you consider attending a Supperclub on your own.

I’m in attendance for part of the week and shall hopefully be attending the Anthology of Gin, along with a Hendrick’s & Tonic [...]
Yesterday was a good day for ‘free things’, not only did I get sent a set of glasses from The Dorchester (more on that later) I also received something from the lovely curious folks at Hendrick’s.
