best of 2015

I went to the theatre quite a lot this year, mainly because I couldn't get tickets for the final One Direction concert. In lieu of throwing my pants at Harry Styles here are the best things I saw in 2015.
If Carly Rae Jepsen drops the best pop album of the year in a forest, and no-one is around to hear it, is it actually the best pop album of the year? The short answer to this deeply philosophical musing is, yes...
London has been a great place to drink for many a year. This year, for me, it seemed even better than before. My favourite watering holes continued to please while a handful of bars and pubs new or otherwise previously unknown to me caught my attention with great service, comfy digs and - most importantly - quality quaffs.
They came in all shapes and sizes ... and in a variety of less than typical situations (cargo container? driving range?) from fancy schmancy to stripped down and plain - but in every circumstance the food was the star.
