It's that time of the year again. We all forget how cold we got last year and how many bruises we achieved trying to ice skate and go out in search of one of the capitals slippery, slide-y public areas to feel all festive and suchlike.
Well, if you are not a once a year ice ninja and want to save yourself pain and embarrassment then head to Q on ice and watch everyone else walk like they did as a babe around the outside of the rink whilst you are toasty warm and getting 20% off.
Ice Rink Canary Wharf has announced that their resident restaurant and bar Q on Ice will return this year. The 20% off is to celebrate the opening week. It will last for 3 days only, starting today, so make sure you grab your friends and colleagues and come down to try their mouth watering dishes from the BBQ menu and raw bar.

Ethical fashion store Here Today Here Tomorrow is hosting an Autumn Winter event next week. The Dalston shop and working studio will lay on drinks and nibbles and up to 20% discount on Thursday 11th October with designs from the likes of Leeds-based outfitters Antiform, renowned London label Goodone and fairtrade fans Outsider.
Here Today Here Tomorrow celebrates its two year anniversary this month, too and there’ll be bargains to be had from their own label stuff at the shop at 30a Balls Pond Road, N1 4AU from 4pm till 9pm on Thursday.
We know by now that ethical fashion doesn’t have to substitute style for the hippy dippy kaftan image it might previously have been tarred with and we reckon this HTHT shopper is testament to that.
It’s made from second hand and organic fabrics, which cut down massively on the ecological impact of a new bag, and it’s ruddy good value at £80. They also do homewares; we particularly like this graphic patchwork cushion.
If you can’t make it to the shop you can buy their stuff on Folksy. With four designer-founders ready to show off their dressmaking techniques before your very eyes in the store as well as sell you lovely threads, we reckon it’s probably worth a visit, though.
Do you like a bargain? Can you get to Seven Dials in Covent Garden tomorrow (26th Thursday)? Then you're in luck.
For one night only Seven Dials and St Martin's Courtyard are offering you 20% off at shops such as Jaeger London, Cos, Twenty8Twelve and Banana Republic as well as at several bars, restaurants and beauty salons.
As well as shopping discounts and money off food and drink there will also be a pop-up bar serving prosecco in the courtyard throughout the entire event which runs from 5-9pm.
If you're the type of person who isn't a fan of shopping most of the shops taking part will be throwing extras such as DJ sets, live music, gifts, goodie bags, make overs and complimentary food and drink.
Check out their Facebook group or Twitter for more information and updates throughout the event.
For one day only Apple are slashing the prices of some of their best loved (and most expensive) products.
Black Friday will be taking place until midnight today and will see products like the iPad 2, iPod Touch and various accessories heavily discounted. Today UK shoppers will be able to get the iPad 2 for £368 and another £100 worth of 3G included in the price as well as an 8G iPod Touch for £154. Bigger versions of both are also being discounted with savings of up to £35 so if you're planning on doing some Apple based Christmas shopping today is definitely the day.
The Mexican grill Gods that are Chipotle are offering a special deal which will let you purchase a burrito for a measly £2.
The offer is part of their 'Boorito' Halloween tradition which they've brought over from the US which lets any customer dressed up as something inspired by the family farm purchase a burrito, an order of tacos, salad or a burrito bowl for just £2. Chipotle offer up a few fancy dress ideas of their own for you to try including 'humanely raised animals' or 'family farmers'.
All you need to do is show up between 6-11pm dressed in your finest farm-wear and you can get the discount. All proceeds go to the local charity FoodCycle.
