About Time: You Attended KERB’s 6th Birthday PartyBy Alicia Grimshaw
Street food trailblazers, KERB, are throwing a massive house party on Friday (12th October) and there’s high chance it’s going to be a messy one. Join them, along with some of London’s biggest street food names under the King’s Cross canopy, to celebrate their 6th birthday. Expect a night of steamed lobster dumplings, house party-style cocktails, incredible one-off KERBlaboration dishes plus KERB bar cocktails, old-school party games and more. And tickets are only £6.
KERB’s 6th Birthday Party: What to Expect
KERB’s House Party will not only be a chance to celebrate KERB’s birthday, but more importantly the traders that have joined them along the way. This year’s line-up includes some of their best new inKERBator stars (Wheelcake Island, Biff Jack Shack, Smokin’ Lotus, Growlers) plus old school KERB legends (Baba G’s, Club Mexicana, BBQ Dreamz, Spice Box, Luardo’s, Donostia, Born & Raised), cooking up one-off dishes and KERBlaborations you won’t find anywhere else on London’s streets. The weird and the wonderful, the outrageous and the old school, the nostalgia with the new; at a time when street food is getting ever bigger, KERB’s House Party is bringing it back to what it’s all about – that indomitable trader imagination, collaboration, and having fun.
