Win a cruise! With Celebrity Cruises! They’re really good!

You know how we, here at *checks notes* Jake, like to give you nice things? Call it a grammar school education. Anyway, true to type, we've gone and bagged you something rather nice - gorgeous in fact - that will improve your life significantly. For three days, anyway. It's a cruise, it's for four people, and this is how it works...

Widows, orphans and other disasters

In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death, taxes and the fact that Michael Arditti will come out with a work of fiction of such high quality that all the papers will be falling over themselves to praise it to the rafters and beyond. If there is a beyond, but let's not get bogged down in theological questions here. This year's treat is Widows and Orphans, a tale of decrepitude and the creeping nature of sin. And we've all been there!

Celebrate Mother’s Day with this twisted tale. For free!

Do you have issues with your mother? Well, if you do, don't bore your friends with them (they have their own!), instead try and bag one of very few pairs of tickets we have left for an exclusive Jake screening (with complimentary wines!) of Xavier Dolan's five-star-reviews-all-the-way Mommy and work through your issues that way.

Molly Wobbly, anyone?

Hello. So you know some people say you should never start a sentence with so? Ignore them. Which brings us neatly to Molly Wobbly, a new and rather delicious and deliciously funny musical currently showing at the Leicester Square Theatre which, alongside the Trafalgar Studios over *checks notes* Trafalgar Square way is, officially or unofficially or which ever way you like it, London's gayest theatre of note. Oh yeah, we missed out Soho Theatre. That's nice too.

A good, old-fashioned house party for the mens. Splash it all over!

It's not often we get excited about a club night. Maybe it's our age. Maybe it's our time of life. But when we heard of Brut (which has an umlaut over the 'u' but we're buggered if we know our way around this MacBook Pro after only five years), we were sold. Inaugurating a brand-new venue in the city with two legends of house music playing the records (or wherever music in clubs comes from these days), Brut (umlaut) launches on Saturday 21st February. Write that date on your hand.

They are supreme! The are fabulette! They are the *checks notes* Supreme Fabulettes!

There will be hair, there will be make-up, there will be colour, there will be movement, there will be fabric and shoes and eyelashes and more hair, none of it actually belonging to anyone in the room, you understand. You'll have gathered by that little fanfare that The Supreme Fabulettes are back in all their glory (and that's quite a lot of glory - maybe too much) at the Leicester Square Theatre this weekend.

Yoga in the heart of London’s glittering Soho!

Soho, yoga, a hot teacher. Is there anything wrong with this picture? No, right? Yes, Alex Maxwell - that's him up there showing off - is already leading yoga classes at Soho Collective (as close as damn it to Jake HQ: you may have been to parties there) on Wednesday evenings and is now extending his repertoire to Saturday mornings...

Bo Drake. There should be an accent on that Bo, but we can’t work out how to do it.

Those who have been swishing up and/or down Soho's glittering Greek Street would have noticed No. 6 has been a work in progress for longer than this piece of string we're holding. It used to be some sort of grey Italian tapas type place, it didn't really work, but now it's Bó Drake, a HNR (Hot New Restaurant), it's totally going to work.
