TAKE ON YOUR MATES

Queens Winter Olympic Challenge

If you were inspired by the Winter Olympics, frozen playground Queens has created its own version so you can prove your own prowess. Until Friday 25th March, punters can compete in a winter triathlon, which includes curling on the winter ice rink, bowling in the state-of-the-art lanes, and a Meatliquor feast where you’ll eat an ‘Olympic Rings’n’Burger’ and a ‘Bobsleigh Rum & Raisin’ hard shake. Tickets cost £49.95pp, but if you want it all for free just hit a bullseye at least once while curling, score over 150 points in bowling, then demolish the Meatliquor feast in under 50 seconds. Game on.

DISCOVER A NEW BOOZER

The Princess Royal, Notting Hill

It’s hard to keep up with all the new boozers opening in London, but The Princess Royal in Notting Hill is definitely one to have on your radar. From the team behind The Grazing Goat in Marylebone and The Builders Arms in Chelsea, this pub has a large dining room and beer garden, plus four bedrooms upstairs. Enjoy craft beer on tap, order oysters and beef tartare from the bar, or settle in for pub grub and Sunday roasts from the main kitchen.

HIT THE SOFA

WeCrashed, Apple TV

You’ll know WeWork as the remarkable coworking business that grew to be a global brand worth $47bn in under a decade. Then, in less than a year, its value plummeted. What happened? Jared Leto takes centre stage as Adam Neumann, the charismatic company founder whose unorthodox tactics and lavish tastes bring the business crashing back down to earth. Anne Hathaway is his partner Rebekah, inspiring him to reach great heights then plumb new depths.

Football: Designing The Beautiful Game

Tickets have just gone on sale for this new exhibition at The Design Museum. Whether you’re a footy fanatic, part-time punter or sporting sceptic, head in to discover the design stories behind the beautiful game. Showcasing over 500 objects, it reveals the master-planning behind the world’s most famous football stadiums, the design innovation used in today’s boots, how the graphic design of team badges, kits and posters shape a club's identity, and how grassroots initiatives are pushing back against the sport’s commercialisation. Don’t miss star objects telling the stories of club legacies and game legends such as Messi, Pelé, George Best and Diego Maradona. Tickets cost £16.80.
