Join the queue
No doubt Bill Bryson, England's new countryside champion, is brimming with social commentary on the recent hysteria. He has taken the piss out of the Brit's penchant for standing patiently in orderly queues for ages. And his fascination is not unique. Have a look at the standing in a queue blog. But this is a bank holiday weekend: time for pandemonium and the 33rd edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."
1) Fancy celebrating all things Liverpudlian after this week's sensational Champions League match? React by heading to a masterpiece of Scouse cinema, 'Different Voices, Still Lives' at the new swanky BFI. Southbank, SE1. Until 12 May.
2) Si hombre, it's Cinco de Mayo time again, but you can't think of a single decent Mexican joint in London? React by heading to East London's veritable casa de tequila, Green & Red, for the party feeling and cheap tacos, beers and tequila cocktails. Sombreros encouraged. Saturday. 5:30pm-1am. 51 Bethnal Green Road, E1.
3) Has the reality of 10 years under New Labour left you more jaded than jubilant? React by heading for topical spoofs of the week's news at the long established Newsrevue comedy show. Canal Cafe Theatre, W2. Fri, Sat at 9:30pm and 9pm on Sunday.
