The main course will be a choice of duck with mole poblano, queso fresco & puree de camote, or amarillo mole with cauliflower, topinambur & yucca. To finish, a delicious raw chocolate, chilli & avocado crema with queso crema nachos, providing spooky revellers with a true Mexican feast.

Each of these courses will be specially paired with a different expression of agave, with Gaby on hand to explain the flavours and crafting of each spirit. To finish off the evening, there will be a Blood and Sand Oriole-style with Ilegal Reposado, and free live music throughout.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
