A Rocking Thanksgiving at Honky Tonk


Honky Tonk hosted the biggest and the best Thanksgiving party in London with two rammed restaurants in Clapham and Chelsea selling #RockStarTurkey, a new dish involving a farm-reared bird and a wild and crazy rock and roll kind of roasting.

And before you think we're being rude, here's the recipe:

Get a big fat turkey and dunk it in 4 litres of bourbon mixed with water, Malden sea salt and brown sugar.

Marinade the bird in this overnight.

Roast for four hours.

Serve up with bourbon and honey on the rocks.

Thank you to all our friends including 80's rock star Mark Shaw from Then Jerico who came to feast and give thanks with us.

***We would like to add that the turkey we feasted on was not the turkey in this photo...Bernard the actor turkey has been pardoned and will spend the rest of his days working for Animal Actors, appearing in panto, etc.

The Golden Goose PR entertainment team has been busy this week holding our official press day for SodaStream Saturday Nights In, kicking off with a photocall with Rylan at the Sanctum Soho hotel.

Rylan, ever the professional, was ready by 9am looking fresh faced and ready to face the swarm of photographers.

After our photocall and a well deserved SodaStream mocktail, we got down to business with Rylan taking part in 14 interviews over the morning - including a live webchat with The Sun.

After our interviews Rylan left for a photoshoot - oh the life of a celebrity! - while we headed back to the office to see all the fantastic coverage as it started coming in.

Selfridges Christmas Emporium now features beautiful, sustainable Wrag Wrap

This Christmas, there is no excuse to wrap gifts in 8,000 tonnes of waste paper.

Golden Goose PR client Wrag Wrap Wrag Wrap, creator of sustainable luxury gift wrap, now sells its classic collection exclusively at Selfridges in its new Christmas emporium.

Louise Oldridge and Nicky Rajska, creators of Wrag Wrap are personally appearing at Selfridges over the weeks leading up to Christmas to show people how stylish and easy it is to ‘Wrag Wrap’ their gifts.

This personal festive wrapping workshop has got to be the ultimate man wrap solution for those who confess that present wrapping is a task that leaves them in a state of confusion.

The wonder behind Wrag Wrap - created with recycled plastic bottles - is that each product can be used time and again: given as part of the gift, so that the recipient can use it when they next have a present to give.

Selfridges is the first and only London department store where Wrag Wrap will be available this Christmas.

Our Wednesday night out launching SodaStream Saturday Nights In

It was a sparkling night for all of us at Golden Goose PR when we launched SodaStream's Saturday Nights In at Whiteleys, with Shelley Smith, Lorna Simpson, Miss Dynamix, Gail Porter and Rylan Clark.

Big Brother and X Factor sensation Rylan was not only the host of the party, but he is the face of SodaStream’s Saturday Nights In, a new campaign designed to get the nation conjuring up creative cocktails with the help of the world's favourite fizzy drinks machines.

To celebrate the launch, Rylan and his celebrity pals were treated to a Wednesday night out, complete with the opening of a new SodaBar pop-up at Whiteleys, Bayswater.

As guests sipped SodaStream cocktails and mocktails, including Moscow Midnight, Holly-Days, Little Star and Pink-On-The-Rocks, Rylan jumped behind the bar to pump up his very own cocktails: the Rylan Passiontini, a cheeky vodka number and the Rylan Soda Sorbet mocktail.

Rylan said: “I love parties and cocktails, what better opportunity to get my showbiz friends together than to celebrate my partnership with SodaStream”.

Presenter and impressionist Francine Lewis, TOWIE’s very own Bobby Cole-Norris and Big Brother’s Dexter Koh were also at the party sipping on SodaStream delights.
