Our mates at LondOntheInside have rounded up five things they’re pretty damn excited about this month.
MEATliquor x Square Pie, various locations, June 1-30
Buns are out and pastry is in as MEATliquor and Square Pie hook up for the mother of all collaborations. Pies and burgers are two of our fave things and we couldn’t be more excited to get our face in that Dead Hip-PIE: a burger encased in a shortcrust pastry base with a puff pastry lid. What more could you want?
Zoo Nights, ZSL London Zoo, June 2-30
Our Friday nights might not be as wild as they used to be, but that’s all about to change now Zoo Nights are back. London Zoo is opening its gates after-hours for a series of adults-only nights and we can’t wait to be sipping vino in the menagerie and finding out what the animals get up to after dark, in the birds and the bees: uncut.
G&T Ice Cream Parlour, The Hoxton, Shoreditch, June 9-11
It’s getting hot hot hot and we just wanna eat ice cream all day long. What’s better than ice cream? Boozy ice cream, and that’s why we can't wait for The G&T Ice Cream Parlour at The Hoxton, Shoreditch. Oh, and you can even top that botanical ice cream with dried olives, crystallised rosemary, botanical brittle, savoury wafer and gin-soaked orange peel: now that’s some fancy ice cream!
The Box Sample Sale, Hackney Walk, June 9-11
New season, new wardrobe. Which is why we’re heading to The Box’s latest sample sale to bag a bargain. There’s 80 percent off Gieves & Hawkes, Cerruti 1881, Kent & Curwen and Hardy Amies. The perfect op to give our summer wardrobe a refresh.
The Maccabees, Omeara, June 16
We were pretty bummed when we heard that The Maccabees were calling it quits. Which is why we were first in line for their farewell shows at Ally Pally, and now the boys have announced another show. This one’s in a more intimate setting with The Mystery Jets and Imperial Daze in support and they’re even donating all the profits to charity. Good lads!
