We can always count on The Butchers Club to deliver when it comes to celebrations. This weekend, expect nothing less than the outrageously good food, free-flowing drinks and buzzing atmosphere that these meat aficionados are known for. They’ll be hosting a block party in celebration of the Fourth of July, HKSAR Day and Canada Day, infusing a bit of each culture into the party. Indulge in the new ‘Glory Hole Burger’ (think a burger and a doughnut combined…), tuck into an epic Cheese Burger Poutine, or take part in classic American party games like beer pong and flip-cup. Expect keg stands, funnels, eating and drinking competitions, and plenty of fun…
When: Friday, 1 July, 4pm
Where: The Butchers Club Burger, 2 Landale Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

See you there in support of unity and freedom!

Of course, Vinnie and the team at Homegrown Foods have prepared some seriously good deals to celebrate the fourth of July. Linguini Fini are hosting a Red, White and Blue barbecue complete with their signature pizza slices, ‘Dirty Water Dogs’, wings, burgers, all manner of sides and even tacos from our fave Mexican joint, Little Burro. Now that’s one collaboration we can get on board with! There will be plenty to tuck into at this American feast, all of which can be washed down with Linguini Fini’s free-flow PBR, margaritas, ‘Hard Lemonade’ or even a popsicle. If food and drink isn’t enough to keep you entertained, never fear, as there will be an exciting magic show as well as the sweet sounds of live band H2O. Continue the party down the road at Posto Pubblico where you can enjoy their much-loved ‘Biggie Smalls and Meatballs‘ with free-flow Peroni, Bellinis, wine coolers and a buffet menu which includes a ‘Build Your Own Sub Station’. Phew!
