The folks at Hai Street Kitchen & Co. want to give you a Brazilian... burrito.

See their whole, glorious, Japanese-inspired menu right here.

Friday, June 20th: Summer Brew Fest is back with over 30 beers on tap from the likes of Five Points, Hackney Brewery, By The Horns, London Fields, and more.

Sunday, June 22nd: Ribs. Craft beer. Hot dogs. DJs. Sunshine. Well, that last one is TBC, but the rest are what you’ll find if you head over to CRATE Brewery on Sunday. They’re playing host to both The Rib Man, and Popdogs, all to a DJ-spun soundtrack ‘til 9pm. Pray for sun, and click here.

Booking ahead...
Speed Rack is back on the 23rd, pitting an all-female lineup of bartenders against each other in a huge, booze-shaking battle, with all proceeds going to support breast cancer charity The Haven. Each ticket gets you more drinks than you may want, and a chance to witness history in the making. Save some boobies, here.

After several sell-out events, Andy Bates returns on the 28th with his First Aid Brunch at The Liquor Store. The menu is packed with blue cheese Bloody Marys, bacon cinnamon rolls, and jalapeño & cheese hash browns, and also has a serious thing for bacon, with it finding its way into most dishes and drinks, such as the extraordinary bacon-infused Old Fashioned. Grab yours before this too sells out, right here.
