Naming and shaming
Tittle-tattle about ordinary folk is so much more colourful. Which is why this week the scales were tipped (literally) by the drunk student who fell through a skylight and thought: "I'll sue my landlord." And on today's frivolous Friday note, let's indulge in the 28th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Did the crash and burn of the affluent-targeted So London rag leave you less than surprised? React by heading to the Museum of London for an exhibition on the real Great Fire and learn how it shaped the city we have today. Find out more here. Until 29 Dec.
2) Emboldened by news that the founder of the Big Issue plans to run for London Mayor? React by heralding human determination and head to "The Art of Survival" at the Crisis Skylight centre, an exhibit of 30 homeless artists whose work is being exhibited for sale. 66 Commercial St, E1. Until Sunday
3) Fancy a trip to the National Theatre but not enticed by the current offerings? React by heading to the Performing Arts Book & Ephemera Fair there this Saturday where 15 dealers will be selling wares from the world of entertainment. Sat 10:30am-7:15pm.
