Prepare yourselves because I’m about to drop some serious news on you right now. Do you like retro crisps? Bottomless buffets? How about cocktails and a 90s-themed playlist? Then you’re going to absolutely love this.
A company called Foozie has organised a pop-up retro crisp festival and it’s all-you-can-eat crisps, bread (so you can make crisp butties), cocktails and a proper knees up.
The website reads: “It’s true that nothing creates nostalgia like food, so we’ve decided to pay homage to the retro crisp with Bristol’s first ever Retro Crisp Pop-up. That’s right, a 2-hour bottomless buffet of over 30 types of crisps.”
They continue: “There will be everything from Chip Sticks to Wheat Crunchies, Quarterbacks to Tangy Toms and French Fries to Roysters. We’ll also provide a huge selection of dips and sauces as well as tons of white and brown bread to create the ultimate crisp sandwich. Foozie will provide a list of recommended sandwich concoctions as well as hosting a competition for the best crisp sandwich creation of the day. The winner will receive their ticket money back as a prize, so this could be the ultimate free night!”
They add: “And the 90’s doesn’t stop at the crisps, oh no! We’re going full-90’s on the drinks and music playlist, with Mad Dog 20/20, UM BONGO COCKTAILS and lots of non-alcoholic treats. Tickets are £9.50 + booking fee per person and include 2 hours of bottomless crisps, dips and bread plus lots of 90’s themed fun. Drinks are sold separately.”
Less than a tenner?! I could eat about £40 worth of Space Raiders in that amount of time.
It’s taking place on August 30 and September 6. The first session will run from 6pm to 8pm, with another session from 8.15pm to 10.15pm and it’s at Foozie in Bristol.
