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.
