With a weekly changing menu of rotating chefs and dishes you can………. take your pick……Mexican beef or veggie stew, Spicy chickpea stew topped with goats cheese, BBQ languistines with complimentary glass of French wine a gut-busting all-american corndog stand with peanut-mustard sauce!!!! Yes it’s packed again tonight and with a great vibe with people eating not just drinking.
This is another fantastic idea from the creators of Camp and Furnace and a perfect use of the cavernous Furnace space. Music, birch trees and picnic tables abound with that open feel and atmosphere creating the perfect harmony to eat, chat and be seen to enjoy.
Friday nights are just one large supper party where food, music and drink just melt into crazy dance.
There are big plans on the horizon for this super venue. Nights in the future will incorporate tastings and workshops to showcase brand new food trends and you’ll see top chefs making an appearance on the night.
This venue will be big news hitting the street.
What better way to start the weekend. But be warned…Friends arrived a little over an hour after doors, already- alas-some of the dishes were running out.
No booking required…But, First come…first served!
Californian artist Todd White will be in Liverpool on Saturday 15th June 700-9.00pm, showing some of his fantastic, stunning art work at Rennies Gallery Bold Street.
Todd began his career in a Warner Bros Studios working with Tiny Toons, then forged his own artisic style into what we see today.
You can see Todds originals and signed limited additions at a price you can afford or just wander Rennies and look about captivated by his and the other art around you. Beware though, Todd loves to talk and sketch the people about him. Who knows, you may be one of his next art pieces with a distinctive body, detailed lips, eyes, hair, skin and hands……a trade mark of Todd.
He was the creative idea behind the team that put together ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ and he has gone global ever since, creating more and more wild, wacky, and wonderful art.
Collectors of his work include numerous celebrities such as Abbey Clancey, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Sylvester Stallone to name.
Todd’s accolades too, are so numerous. He has been the official artist for ‘The Grammy Awards’ and was chosen by Warner brothers to celebrate their 70th anniversary of The ‘Wizard of Oz’. Coca Cola has even used his images on their bottles.
This will be a rare opportunity- to meet, chat to and be inspired by a modern artist. Be there and meet him……
Rennies Bold Street Saturday!
The tall ships will once again grace the River Mersey with beautiful vessels from Ireland, Denmark, France and Belgium.
If the ships are not for you then, the entertainment in and around the Albert Dock will be exciting and electric. I’ll definitely be donning the wet suit and gracing the Albert Dock trying my hand at the sport of ‘wake’ boarding.
This is a real thrill, skimming across the dock surface at jet speed.
Originally an American idea and modified over the years; it’s taken off literally all over Europe and can be seen near all the major theme parks as an attraction.
It’s a sort of Jackass, daredevil, dangerous form of water skiing….but fun, fun, fun!
On Saturday, fourteen of the world’s best wakeboarders will descend on Liverpool for the Red Bull Harbour Reach. This will be a truly exciting event which the kids will enjoy and judging by the last event, will have the visitors bursting to view the aerial acrobatics.
The Albert docks will play host to the most challenging setup yet, using Liverpool’s industrial features, to create a competition that places the rider’s agility and creative thinking to the limit.
The River Festival is one of Liverpool’s showcase events which highlights the historic waterfront to visitors from all over the world.
So, don’t miss the spectacular World Music Stage with Indian, African, and Arab music and dance; not forgetting the traditional sea-shanties sung in and around the beautiful sailing boats.
Don’t miss the Liverpool Shanty Kings at the Museum of Liverpool atrium on 8th June at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.
The whole weekend will be a hive of activity and entertainment with those super eateries tempting you at every turn.
Watch the street theatre and entertainment unfold before your eyes and it’s all free. Pick up a schedule of events from the tourist information office and plan your weekend.
Weather forecast predictions are for super weather this weekend so expect thousands of people to descend on the Albert Dock, Pier Head and the waterfront.
Will I be there……You bet!!!!
