FRANK’S®REDHOT® MAN SCHOOL – UK’s first ‘Man School’ pops up in London and Manchester

Screen Shot 2013-09-11 at 15.47.46

It seems that to be the perfect gentlemen nowadays, you have to know how to dance, how to pick a good wine, and how to dress well.  Yet new research from Frank’s® RedHot® has found that 38% of men think they are bad at dancing and 22% of men  rated themselves as having no fashion sense.

So Frank’s® RedHot® has set up the first ever ‘Man School’ two special pop up events in London and Manchester this September to help men go from Mr. Bean to Mr. Bond.

Taking place on the evenings of 12th September in the Hoxton Apartment, Hoxton Hotel, London EC2A and 18th September at The Great John Street Hotel, Manchester, these events will feature experts giving tips and advice on how to dress, dance and even tell a good joke. At break time – unlike any school most of us know – there will be beers and authentic Frank’s® RedHot® Buffalo wings to enjoy!

With clothing tips from expert stylist and designer John Lancaster, known for his edgy contemporary menswear, and top wine suggestions from Gordon Ramsay sommelier Matt Mawtus, the ‘Man School’ is the secret men’s club where you can learn some top tips, grab a beer and have a laugh. There is even comedy at hand from Joe Bor (London) and David Morgan (Manchester) who will be sharing tips on how to execute a good joke, as well as doing some stand-up comedy to put a smile on your face. Plus tips from memory expert Mark Channon, who will be sharing some tricks of the trade to ensure you never forget that anniversary again!

If you reckon you are a bit lacking in the skills department or your man is not making the cut in these areas, there are 30 spaces open to the public at each event, available on a first come first serve basis.

Get your free tickets by visiting:

London: http://www.etickets.to/buy/?e=10653

Manchester: http://www.etickets.to/buy/?e=10654

The evening is hush hush and should not be revealed to everyone… Remember the first rule of the Frank’s® RedHot® Man School is that you do not talk about Man School!

 

Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce is priced at £1.49 and available from Tesco, Sainsbury’s,  ASDA, Waitrose, Whole Foods, Ocado and Amazon.

What’s On: BUTLER’S WHARF BLACKOUT

 

Blackout Banquet

D&D London celebrates the Dark River for the Thames Festival

6th – 15th September 2013

 

 

“The name of the river ‘Thames’ itself is said to “derive from the Sanskrit term for ‘dark’ and it has often been known as the dark river.” 

Peter Ackroyd

 

D&D London is delighted to announce the launch of the Butler’s Wharf Blackout as part of the Thames Festival celebration from 6th – 15th September 2013.

 

D&D London’s collective of iconic riverside restaurants at Butler’s Wharf – Le Pont de La Tour, Cantina del Ponte, Blueprint Café and Butler’s Wharf Chophouse – will be literally ‘blacking out’ electricity in all four restaurants from 8.30pm every evening throughout the10 days of the festival. Free from the light pollution of modern London, diners will have the unique opportunity to savour spectacular views of the Thames and experience the unspoilt beauty of the river by darkness and subtle candlelight.

 

For the duration of Butler’s Wharf Blackout, guests will enjoy candlelight dining and late night drinking sessions at each venue alongside a calendar of special events from Blind Wine Tasting, to Ghost Bus Tours, to a Fire and Flambé night.

 

Echoing the central purpose of the Thames Festival, each of these sensory experiences will celebrate the history and beauty of the Thames, its ancient mystery and the changing modern landscape. The events will encourage diners to engage with the unparalleled views from the riverside vantage points and are designed to inspire respect and appreciation for London’s greatest natural asset.

 

A highlight will be the ‘Blackout Banquet’, a pop-up 40 metre, 140 seat banqueting table spanning the riverbank, starting from British dining institution Butler’s Wharf Chophouse, to classic French restaurant Le Pont de La Tour, and ending alongside Italian trattoria Cantina del Ponte. Diners will feast on a rotating menu of dishes showcasing each of the restaurants.

 

The candlelit culinary journey through each cuisine will occur every evening throughout the festival period and at lunchtimes on Saturdays and Sundays. The banqueting table will work in all weathers with a clear cover to allow riverside views come rain or shine.

 

With food and drink events designed to heighten the sensory experience of darkness by the river, including blind wine tastings, blindfold dinners, fire menus, and innovative and futuristic activity which will light the darkness with neon, LED and laser lighting – the Butler’s Wharf Blackout will showcase The Thames in all its glory.

Previously The Markham Inn Public House, Red House is the sixth restaurant and bar venture from partners Sean Largotta, John DeLucie and English-born Chris Jonns.

Chris, who has lived in New York for nearly ten years has long been applying pressure to his partners to look to ‘Blighty’ for their next venture.

rh2

“Its been interesting for me to witness objectively the shift in general night life and restaurant trends over the last ten years.  There was a distinct sway of interest from west London over to east London and now it seems the cool hunters are coming back west.  It was just a case of finding the right venue at the right time.”

True to the Crown Groups signature style, Red House’s unique re-design is a sympathetic restoration of a classic English establishment combined with a chic, American twist.

rh3
When contemplating the interiors, Crown Group had no doubt who the best woman for the job was. Uber-cool New York designer, Meg Sharpe, known for embodying classic details with a quirky finish was flown in immediately.  Cleverly, Crown Group liked Meg so much when she worked on their earlier ventures, they employed her as their lead in-house designer.

The main dining room is complete with a skylight that serves as a centre piece and focal point for the 3,500 square foot space.

The bar at the front of the restaurant features a comprehensive beverage menu as well as an open kitchen. Brunch is served at intimate tables in this area allowing diners to have a view outside of a charming park.

In keeping with the theme of the restoration of the building, Red House offers reinventions of classic dishes that include the Wild Mushroom Pot Pie with spring vegetables & chive marscapone, Macaroni & Cheese with Montgomery cheddar and the Halibut Fish & Chips with sugar snap pea salad, tartar sauce and lemon. Red House also offers an array of fresh salads, sides and decadent desserts.

Ben Scorah, Crown Group Hospitality’s Head Mixologist has created a beverage menu of classic old-fashioned style cocktails that are also updated with a modern twist.  Ben has received critical acclaim for his modern take on classic cocktails, extensive knowledge and artful deliver having been named “Most Inspired Bartender” by GQ in 2009. Cocktail specialties will include the Red House Riot – Red chili infused vodka, fresh mint, passion fruit, lime, and aromatic bitters with a splash of ginger beer and Penicillin – Blended scotch shaken with fresh ginger, honey, and lemon served on ice and crowned with a nip of smoky Islay scotch.
