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.)

I just keep walking through and getting a hit of fresh produce and it makes dizzy with joy.) This all came about after I was contacted last week by MightyVine to try their tomatoes and give a review if …

My Steak-cation at Zed451

You ever continually walk by a spot and never go in? And then of course, when you do go, it’s unbelievable and you kick yourself for all those times passed? Welcome to my story of ZED451. THE SPOT I live about ten minutes from this place and have walked by here at least north of three hundred thousand times. I’m not sure what didn’t bring …

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. And if they sound a little hang-loose, easy-ridin’, Lebowski-esq, well, that’s because they were. In fact, the whole night was. (It also helps that they had bowling. That always puts one in the mood of The Dude.) …
