Alex

Alex Shebar is constantly reminded that he is an American. Of course, this is what happens when you move to London but haven't quite given up the accent (he does spell "favourite" with a 'u' and say, "rubbish," though.)

Born in Boston, and Yelp's former Community Manager of Cincinnati, he emigrated to The Old Smoke in 2012 and never looked back.

Alex now enjoys bad films, strong gin and a brightly coloured Instagram account. Hopefully you enjoy his posts about London and around the world (or at least, those previously mentioned brightly coloured photos.)

My Steak-cation at Zed451

Eat Drink Social at Punch Bowl Social

“I’m going to let you guys just keep on living.” These we’re the words of our server after taking our order during our night at Punch Bowl Social.

That always puts one in the mood of The Dude.) …

Guac and Roll with Dos Toros and Andrew W.K.

Here’s a thing that you might not know about Andrew W.K., the blood-stained, long-haired, hard-partying rock star… The man is honestly possibly the nicest most polite human being on this planet. Who knew? Well, you do now! And I can prove it: Recently, I’ve begun doing some influencer marketing and event production throughout Chicago. As part of this, I’m doing some fun projects with Dos …

Gastronomic Times at Bistronomic!

I love cooking at home. I really do. But there are just some days when it’s not going to cut it, and my fun (but limited) culinary skills aren’t enough. You want to go out and be treated, have the whole fine dining experience and experience the food you can’t make at home. You also don’t always one hundred percent of the time want to …
