Things to Do This Weekend
Every week we’ll be giving Joes the best things to do this weekend no matter where you are in the country. Whether it’s the best new bars, clubs, restaurants, films or events, we’ve got you covered!
Things to Do This Weekend in London
Saturday 25th March. Free.
To celebrate Women’s History Month, one of our favourite London breweries, Walthamstow’s Wild Card Brewery, is hosting a solid 10 hours of female-led DJing at their taproom. The event is free but Wild Card will be collecting donations Woman’s Trust and Women In Prison on the day.
Believe it or not, Ravenswood Industrial Estate is generally a great hangout regardless of the event with fellow brewers Pillars Brewery, gin palace Mother’s Ruin, and the biggest collection of neon signage in Europe at God’s Own Junkyard, all within yards of Wild Card too.
Location: Wild Card Brewery, Shernall Street, E17 9HQ. Nearest Station: Walthamstow Central.
Eat at JägerSoho Berlin brünch Pop-Up
Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm.
Jägermeister have teamed up with Soho Radio for a new creative space in the heart of Soho. For 2 months, JägerSoho will provide a platform for the creative and entrepreneurial communities to launch and expand their start-up businesses, and this month they’ve just opened up their door to Berlin brünch.
During the week, brünch will be serving a variety of its signature Berliner Stulle and homemade brünch Granola with Quark to take away as well as a Soho-inspired latte menu ranging from Black Sesame Latte to Red Bean Latte with changing specials, all made with Oatly Oat Milk (vegan friendly). Perfect for a working brunch!
Location: Soho Radio Great Windmill Street, W1D 7LD. Nearest Tube: Piccadilly Circus.
Things to Do This Weekend in Birmingham
Gin & Meat Festival
Saturday 25th March. £5.
We love our gin here at Average Joes, so we can’t not recommend Joes in the Birmingham area hit up Taste and Liquor this weekend for its first ever Gin and Meat Festival. It’s a chance for gin beginners to become better acquainted with the spirit in a laid-back environment, while offering juniper connoisseurs the opportunity to discover something new.
But all that drinking is going to work up an appetite. As such, the festival will also be featuring some of the best street-food traders in the area, championing dishes from around the world. Highlights include Goa Pork Curry Naan Sliders from Rebel Indian, BBQ Brazilian Beef Steak from Brazilian Grill, and all the Caribbean BBQ you can eat from Spice It Up BBQ.
Location: No21 Digbeth, 21-27 Milk Street, B5 5TR.
Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester
Eat at Cloud 23
Daily. Afternoon Tea from £23.
It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and if you’re struggling, we think Cloud 23 is the perfect place to treat your mum. Located on the 23rd floor of the landmark Beetham Tower, the Hilton hotel’s smart cocktail and champagne bar does one of the best and best-value Afternoon Tea’s in the city.
Even if you’re not looking for a Mother’s Day haunt, Cloud 23 is great place to eat with a style they like to call ‘British influenced cuisine’. They use local, seasonal ingredients from around the UK and fuse them together with cooking styles from around the world. The restaurant also offers a stunning view of the city.
Location: Beetham Tower, 303 Deansgate, M3 4LQ.
Things to Do This Weekend in North Wales
Daily. From £25.
It might not be close to any city centre, but North Wales’ Surf Snowdonia is well worth the trek. Set in the lush Conwy Valley, Surf Snowdonia is a 300m long, fresh-water lagoon which packs a powerful head-high artificial wave that rises at the centre of the lagoon, and peels perfectly for more than 150 metres.
It’s the world’s first inland surf lagoon and offers Joes and Janes of all ages the chance to learn how to surf or perfect their craft. There’s also a Crash and Splash lagoon to keep the real little ones occupied.
Location: Conway Road, Dolgarrog, Conwy LL32 8QE.
