Hi Guys
Hope you are all having a great week? Thanksgiving is this Thursday and if you are at a loss of where to go you can always volunteer to serve up dinner to the homeless? Lots of churches and homeless shelters are looking for extra volunteers, just search on Google and you will have ample choice. The Cat and Fiddle are open for Thanksgiving lunch and so are the newly opened Irish bar Rock & Reilly, over on Sunset @ San Vincente. They also have Magnars cider on tap!
If you are cooking click here for a $10 off coupon for Fresh n Easy (aka Tesco) Thanks Jason! 
So many of you are looking to sublet your apartments/rooms or househunting that we have set up a new group called Brits in LA Housing. This way your listings can all be in one dedicated place. Click here to join .
Craig and I were lucky enough to go to the opening night of British artist Andrew McKewen 11.11.11 exhibition at the Gagosian in Beverly Hills. It runs through to December 23rd so if you get the chance try and stop in.

We also went to see Bring it On at the Ahmanson. I had no idea what to expect, and was very pleasantly suprised! More politically incorrect than Prince Phillip, it is a cross between Single White Female, West Side Story with a splash of Benny Hill. My favourite scene had to be the sexy dance routine from a leprechaun mascot!! Great show for all the family. It is here until Dec 10th so don't miss it! For tickets call 213.972.4400 or visit http://www.centertheatregroup.org/bringiton

It may never get freezing here but it doesn't mean we can't pretend...Pershing Square's outdoor ice rink is open for business. Click here for details . Group trip anyone ?
I have just discovered a great phone app called Tune In. If you are missing radio from back home you can use this to listen in! I have been listening to Radio 1 through my phone whilst driving around town. Its brilliant!
Don't forget to keep checking our FB page as we are running lots of competitions.
Have a great Thanksgiving
cheers

Brits in LA member  Lauren Irwin releases ‘Stand Tall’, a powerful and 
personal expression of empowerment, and an urgent message of anti-bullying.
"I was bullied for years, and writing this song is my way of fighting back" says Irwin "At some point or another every one of us will find ourselves the victim of a bully, or a challenge that life throws our way - I want people to hear my story so that they can see a way out. It's time to stand up!"

STAND TALL IS RELEASED FOR DOWNLOAD ON iTUNES ON NOVEMBER 29, 2011 
Listen to STAND TALL: http://soundcloud.com/laurenirwin
