Monorex / Matsuri Xmas dinner 07

Mmm, there is nothing better at Christmas time than a good roast dinner and that is exactly what 35 lucky Monorex/Matsuri friends had the chance to munch at the bi-monthly event entitled Chilly con Carnage.

The event aimed to bring together lots of creative people to London’s Below Zero bar, made famous for its frozen Ice Bar upstairs. Although it’s probably the fifth in a line of events held at the Below Zero bar in Heddon St, this one had a little bit of Christmas flavour with champagne reception and lip-smacking buffet dinner for those who bought tickets in advance.

With a menu of turkey with stuffing, roast lamb, ham, salmon, pumpkin, roast potatoes, Foccacia bread, coleslaw and mince pies, fruit and lush chocolate brownies for dessert all the guests ate together around a horse-shoe shaped table with the Christmas tree taking centre stage.

Not only was the dinner a real success, but also the guests went away feeling like Christmas had come early, with every single person going home with their very own present. Nike trainers, Ipods, DVDs and Hulger phones were just a few of the cool and quirky prezzies on offer.

After dinner with most of our bellies fit to burst the party began with DJ sets from the Patchwork Pirates, and the Geisha Disco Boys. The music played late into the night with even a 16year old beat boxer stepping up to impress the crowds. He had an absolutely amazing set that just blew everyone away.

With Pens in hand it was a chance for the artists to have a little freestyle doodle on the specially purchased canvas. All four artists came up with some pretty masterful pieces, especially the artistic styles of Wen and Morgasmic, who having only just been introduced on the night blended very well together.

Everyone went home feeling very merry and slightly sizzled due to the buy one get one free drinks offer open throughout the night.

Went along to the Insa show the other night at Best and saw the talented man's new masterpieces - Everything looked really fresh and it looked like he sold 50% of his art in the first hour or so....

When I got there it was one big que for the Bandana give away - I missed out on this by 4 peeps! but hey ho you can't win em all. I am sure those kids were there 2 or maybe 3 hours before - it felt like being in the middle of a Bathing Ape que.....

Good show, nice booze and met many cool people!

Yo just a quick update to explain where we have been the last couple of weeks!

We were invited down to the Love Music, Hate Racism gig @ fabric alongside babyshambles and co - so we got Teck up on a little stage painting a canvas in front of the indie / grime kids!

Quite funny watching Teck get props from young girls asking for him to tag their arm etc....

Good night tho and a big thanks to Dave and Olivia for sorting!!!
