At around 5:45pm yesterday, I shut my bedroom door behind me and rushed to the front door of my flat with my sneakers in one hand and my phone in the other. I was speaking to my sister who was already waiting for me at Oxford circus. We were heading to the preview for the latest and swankiest bar in central London called The Wigmore.
Judging from the tone in my sister’s voice, she was getting slightly impatient waiting for me. She was my plus one for the event and has been looking forward to it ever since I told her about it.
Long story short, we eventually got to The Wigmore and immediately thought to myself this could possibly be my new handout spot. The atmosphere was electric as we made our way through the crowd of people already there. Without wasting any time, I took out my camera and started snapping away. The high ceilings gave the space a luxurious and spacious feel to it.
Wow! Yeah thats right I said wow. I have never started an article on Cuts of Him with a wow. That’s exactly how I feel about the Moet & Chandon July Festival at the Adnams racecourse.
I received an invite from The Jockey Club a few weeks ago to the Newmarket racecourse and I have been looking forward to it ever since. However, I have to say that nothing could have prepared me for such an adrenaline filled day.
It was about 35 degrees Celsius on a Thursday afternoon when the vehicle I was travelling in pulled up to a gate in Aberdeen, West of Freetown. I chuckled and said to my drive “we don reach sef?”, which translates as “are we here already”. Either I was too busy on my laptop to notice the drove from IMAT (where I was stayed for my holiday), or the journey was much shorter than I anticipated.
By the time the gatekeeper opened the gate to let us in, I was already out of the vehicle and trying to figure out where the reception area was. I absolutely dislike sitting in a vehicle waiting for gates to be opened, drivers to park properly or even being held up in the Freetown traffic. In fact I do not like to be chauffeured around but as someone who cannot drive, I have very little choice in the matter. As a result, I try to spend as little time as possible in any vehicle. The minute I sense there could be a slight hold up, I am out of the vehicle walking towards my destination.
I don’t know how much you know about the The Moet & Chandon July Festival or indeed specifically the gentlemen’s day (if at all) but you need head over right now and visit their website to see how cool this event is. Ok ok not so fast, just hold on one moment before you leave my page for theirs. Please allow me to give you a quick foretaste gents.
