Free locals (hangover) brunch day at Dirty Bones Kensington

For one day only on Sunday 13th December, Dirty Bones Kensington will be spreading the brunch love and tending to all hangovers, by offering local residents of W8 a free brunch! Available from 12-2pm on a first come first served basis, locals can line up and claim their free main dish simply by proving they live in the area – it can be any addressed piece of post such a utility bill or bank statement (plus show ID with matching name), as long as it has the W8 postcode. For those wanting to bring a guest from east, south or north that’s ok too – as long as one person per two guests has a W8 postcode & matching ID and can prove it, the brunch is on Dirty Bones. Bring on the Brunch brigade! www.dirty-bones.com/

The full works

For a full hangover cure this year,  Yeotown will be running a special, festive New Year’s Eve retreat – a much needed getaway for those having overindulged at Christmas! The five-day Yeotox will help guests to achieve a high level of wellbeing, energy and health by taking control of both mind and body. Through the help of the definitive pair of wellbeing experts in the UK, Mercedes Ngoh Sieff and Simon Sieff, guests leave stronger in body and clearer in mind. A far cry from boot camps and fad diets, the retreat is run by a friendly team of down-to-earth, highly knowledgeable experts, and focuses on maintaining a healthy mind and body through healthy cooking, hiking, fitness and nutrition, yoga, massage and meditation. The difference will be the organic champagne served to guests on New Year’s Eve (optional if the hangover is too severe!).
