The Werewolves of London
In the spooky 1978 song by the late, great Warren Zevon, The Werewolves of London, Zevon sings: “I saw a Werewolf drinking a Pina Colada at Trader Vic’s, his hair was perfect.” The retro rock song which has since been covered several times, spent six weeks in the US music chart and featured Fleetwood Mac’s bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood.
This Halloween, Trader Vic’s is calling all werewolves to come in and enjoy a special Halloween range of Pina Coladas Trader Vic’s style… even better if your hair is perfect, as Zevon’s vision is recreated, in the haunted Mai Tai Lounge bathed in the shine of the silver moon.

A brand new illustrated drawing exhibition will run at InTouch Gallery from October 7, displaying the work of artist Tejbir Singh, whose illustrations depict lively sports action scenes. Created with pen, ink and pastels, and all hand drawn, Tejbir’s work takes inspiration from his love of sports.

There are action snapshots from football, basketball, volleyball, handball, tennis, cricket, hockey, ice hockey, Thai boxing, and horse riding, to name but a few of the sports being highlighted.
