Our mates at LondOntheInside have rounded up five things they’re pretty damn excited about this May.
Folk, YMC & Oliver Spencer Sample Sale, Shoreditch, May 5-7
We love a good bargain – and Folk, YMC & Oliver Spencer’s sample sale never fails to disappoint. With up to 80 percent off, we’ll be getting our game face on to fight it out for those threads. It’s cash only, so make sure you come prepared.
Pergola Paddington Central to open, Paddington, May 24
Pergola on the Roof won our hearts last summer, so we can’t wait to check out Pergola 2.0 in Paddington Central. We’re expecting summer vibes all round with new food stalls, DJs, lots of greenery and booze by the bucketload.
Camden Market Cheese Festival, Camden Town, May 6-7
Sweet cheesus! A cheese festival is coming to Camden Market and we couldn’t be more excited. If you need convincing, we’ll just say this: fried Swiss cheese balls. The two-day affair will see street foodies hook up with cheese makers to create some really grate treats. Oh, and there will be lots of booze.
Sandwich Festival, Hackney, May 20
Nothing beats a good sarnie – and we can’t wait to eat ourselves into a carb coma at London’s very first Sandwich Festival. Don’t miss our very own sarnie with Grill My Cheese – it’s got Pickled Onion Monster Munch in it, for God’s sake!
Señor Ceviche, Charlotte Street, end of May
We’re big fans of the original Señor Ceviche in Carnaby, but we’re expecting their second outpost on Charlotte Street to be even better. With new dishes, a brunch menu and basement pisco bar, it’ll be Peruvian vibes all round. And word on the street is that they will be opening with 50 percent off food, so keep those eyes peeled.
