Scene & Erred: Beware the amorous penguins, Finn Partners spares no expense, stiff drinks all round

No expense was spared as Finn Partners put on the kind of celebrations to mark its first year in the UK that would put the egomaniacal dictator of a military state to shame.

That said, it reckons the hipsters would descend on the place like a pack of wild hyenas if it were to happen and thus claims intellectual property over the idea. You have been warned.)
