A Caribbean barbeque is coming to Croydon most summer Sundays, starting next month – and everyone who takes part will have the chance of winning a holiday of a lifetime
Big Mike’s Rooftop Lime hits Boxpark next month.
Boxpark is giving over its rooftop terrace to Big Mike’s Calypso Kitchen most Sundays, from June 6, when they will be offering the chance to sit back, chill out and relax with friends with great barbeque food and a whole lot of rum.
Big Mike Springer, the chef and proprietor, will be bringing the vibes with a steel pan band, fully stocked bar and an awesome menu that promises “everything you could ever possibly want on a skewer”.
Dishes range from jerk chicken, burgers and crackling pork, with lashings of Big Mike’s Jerk and Twerk sauce, all served with a pitcher of beer or rum punch.
“Come along to experience South London’s most tropical event this year and lime just like a Bajan,” Springer said.
All those attending will also be in with a chance of winning a trip of a lifetime to the beautiful island of Barbados. The prize includes flights and accommodation for four. More details at www.bigmikesck.com from the beginning of June.
