Hello August! I cannot believe how this year is flying by. Jump for Joy features places I have visited, food I have tried or a good book I have read amongst other lovely things. This mini series should not take no longer to read than sipping a cup of your favourite beverage. Welcome to the second edition of my Jump for Joy (you can read the first edition here).
Lucky Fox – Sheffield
One of my new favourite haunts, Lucky Fox is the place to go for delicious fried chicken, amazing burgers and refreshing drinks although rather melodramatically, Lucky Fox describe them as ‘serving beer as cold as your ex’s heart.’ The Brooklyn-inspired menu with locally sourced meat and fish; food is freshly prepared and packed with flavour. My favourite dishes are the bourbon chicken with fries and the chicken rancher burger. The staff are incredibly friendly and always happy to accommodate. Lucky Fox is where my friends and I love to go for comfort food.
“On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers.
The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story.”
I recently watched Loving Vincent (available on Netflix). The incredibly beautiful film retells the story of Vincent Van Gogh through his wonderful paintings, which really brings the fully painted feature film to life. It was so moving to watch and the intricate detail was simply stunning. I would encourage anyone who likes art to give this film a watch.
