The ribbon’s been cut on the capital’s Silly Season this month, with a stack of new openings straight out of that Alan Partridge “Monkey Tennis” scene. Like Avo-Lution – a f*cking ballot-only avocado pop-up! Then there’s Hipchips – a “crisp café” destined for Soho. Stop it. Not all bad, though. London Shuffle Club – Europe’s first venue dedicated entirely to the big-in-Brooklyn shuffleboard game – looks fun. At least it’s not another mini-golf thing, right? And Sliders Curling Club takes that winter Olympics sport we all cared about 11 years ago and throws cocktails into the mix at Roof East.).
