Welcome to Got Game
12 Aug 2013
Dear friend/browser/customer/hungry person,
Welcome to the Got Game website.
This News & Events and blog page is devoted to our business activity and trading locations, collaborations, and relevant news and information on upcoming events and associated issues (surprise surprise).
This being our first summer up and running we have kept a relatively low profile. We kicked off with two music festivals, collaborating with friends at Noisily Festival (Leicestershire) in May, put on by our good friends @BasslineProductions, followed by Gottwood Festival (Anglesey, N. Wales), run by another group of talented friends, in June. If you’re into electronic music they are well worth a visit and come highly recommended.
On the back of these and some very positive feedback, we gained bookings for corporate summer drinks do’s and private birthday parties in and around central London, expanding on the popular staple The Obelix Burger, to canapés including venison carpaccio with pear butter (pictured below). Not something we saw ourselves doing initially, but very good to add strings to the bow. We have also secured a concession at FREEZE Ski and Snowboard Festival in Battersea, this coming November/December, which we're very much looking to forward to.
Until then, we will be developing our seasonal menus and consolidating our supply chain, to ensure provisions of the freshest nosh available, year round. Ideally we would love to gain a regular slot at a bona fide London Market, if possible at the genuine foodie hotspot, Borough Market.
As soon as this materialises, we will bring Got Game to the big smoke and join the burgeoning hub of street food and pop-up activity. And it can’t come any sooner! It’s an exciting world to be part of at the moment, with creative minds and tasteful pallets conjuring delicious, quality and affordable food, to borrow @KERB’s strap line, help with “making cities taste better.” A very worthwhile cause.
Below are some snaps of the Got Game crew at this year’s events, working with Adrian Jones, a Michelin starred chef and fan and supporter of the Got Game enterprise, and friends and family that were keen to help - especially with regards keeping staffing costs to a minimum! Long may that continue.
