I can't say I have ever gambled my pennies away or that I see myself going any time soon. Saying that, I DID go to a casino for drinks recently and I was so surprised to see the excitement and anticipation in everyone's eyes. People take gambling so seriously and I never even knew that it's a 24 hour business! Craaaazy!
Pokerstars has teamed up with with Jones & Sons and has created the world's first play-by-poker restaurant. Unfortunately, it's only a pop-up restaurant so it's just left London but it is travelling all over different cities across the UK.
The London one was located in Haggerston, East London, which is a cool, trendy and upbeat location in itself. I'm really looking forward to the return of The All-in Kitchen. I reckon it would be pretty interesting to check out!
You play poker, win chips and use your winnings to buy your food. Sounds intriguing right?
The gourmet menu offers the finest set meals including: 'Royal Flush of King Crab Thermidor', 'Queen Scallops accompanied by Salt Baked Swede and Bacon Marmalade, '4 Of A Kind of Lamb Chops, Rump, Kidney and Shoulder With A Rosemary Jus' and even a '2 Pair of Pear Tarte Tatin, Pear Caramel and Ice Cream'. Sounds delicious!
Look out for it in your city - it could be in-town or coming to you soon! Be sure to let me know what it's like if you do pop along!
