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. Just look at the use of colour ink right there. Apparently it also treated 50 folk to a meal at some fancy Spanish restaurant, but you wonder if it was all a bit of a let down after such extravagance...

Continuing on its mission to PR every cool food and drink joint in London, W got stuck in with the launch of cocktail bar The Whip. Here the team looks for the strongest thing on the menu after hearing agency supremo Warren Johnson’s next plan – an ironic revamp of Wimpy. (NB: In the interests of not being sued, S&E would like to state that this may not actually be the case. 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.)
