SoLo (So London) Style

When in London, wear leggings. Or so Soho's mantra goes. And after this week's Madonna whore fest I thought we could all use a dose of authentic 80s pimping. So is his look more meat butcher or Billy Elliott? Yes, those leggings are really checkered, I am afraid. But, what we really appreciate is his attitude. Because after this week's Mills-McCartney celebrity knock out, we are all craving a more understated show of personality. Which leads us straight into the 11th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."

1) Has Madonna's millionaire mum rank pulling distracted you from the grave plight of orphaned children the world over? React by partaking in this weekend's Bloomsbury Festival and head to the Foundling Museum, London's original home for abandoned children. Friday-Sunday.

2) Has Bush's better-never-than-late admission that Iraq is another Vietnam enraged you enough to inspire a personal Tet offensive? React with non-violent dignity and grab a mate, a digital camera and head to Brixton for London's hippest photographic treasure hunt Shoot Brixton. Winners will go on display at Photofusion. Saturday.

3) Gutted to miss Harold Pinter in this week's sold-out, Krapp's Last Tape? React by booking now for Caryl Churchill's up-coming world preview and guaranteed sold-out sensation Drunk Enough to Say I Love You. Opens 10th Nov at the Royal Court.

Pinter was incredible. He knows Beckett's works so well and still out performed any performance I have ever seen. Top bill!

“Here I end this reel. Box - Pause - three, spool - Pause - five. Pause. Perhaps my best years are gone. When there was a chance of happiness. But I wouldn`t want them back. Not with the fire in me now. No, I wouldn`t want them back.”, S. Beckett, Krapps Last Tape

I went on one of the Shoot treasure hunts at Tate Modern and had a blast. It's the best thing I've done since I've been in London; probably
the best thing I've done in a long time! Definitely give it a go. Four hours and then a fun drinks reception afterwards. Cant beat it
