Valentine's Day pop-ups

 

Friday

Giving flowers is such old news. This Valentine's Day, it's all about eating them or even better, drinking them. Christabel's is taking over a little corner of the Boxpark in Shoreditch tonight for The Secret Rose Petal party where you buy edible rose petals for £6 and you can swap them for some delicious cocktails. The botanical bar has a growing herb rose garden plus expert mixologists, so bring a date and hope the drinks will make them see you through rose-coloured glasses. Runs from 6pm until 9.30pm tonight.

Saturday

This one goes out to the lovers, because if you're single, it might suck a little bit. Sorry. The man behind the brilliant Symmetry Breakfast is hosting a special Valentine's Day pop-up for couples at Mr Buckley's this weekend for a lil romantique brunch. We interviewed him early this week (read more here) and he said to expect treats like chocolate waffles and shakshuka, all perfectly laid out, of course, alongside juice, cocktails and coffee. Tickets, per pair, cost £40, there's sittings throughout Saturday and Sunday and there's a few still available from here.
