Where does the time go, eh? Former street food and citywide sourdough favourite Pizza Pilgrims is about to turn five! FIVE! Quite understandably, it’s throwing a party to celebrate – and getting eyebrow-ringed, hair-gelled ’90s boyband of the gods 5ive to play it! 5IVE! Expect plenty of slam-dunk funk, folks getting down and other raunchily kinetic goings-on. Utterly unprecedented stuff.
There is a catch, though: tickets for the shebang – which takes place at Pizza Pilgrims’ new West India Quay outpost on Friday April 28 – are available only via a nice democratic raffle. As well as 50 pairs of tickets to the glistening-browed pop regression session (plus pizza, obvs) there will be prizes including cocktail- and pizza-making masterclasses, bottles of Pococcello (aka in-house limoncello) and sessions in the new spot’s dedicated Super Mario Kart booth.
Tickets are a fiver from Design My Night and the draw takes place on Friday April 21. Even if you win zip, your ticket can be redeemed for a margherita at Pizza Pilgrims West India Quay throughout the summer. So it’s basically win-win.
Pizza party got you piqued? Here's our run-down of London’s best.
