Our Little Leith Is Growing Up
Lately, everyone seems to be in a better mood; maybe it’s the weather…or perhaps the Jubilee…but we’re pretty sure it’s because our Ocean Terminal restaurant in Leith is having their 10th birthday this Sunday.
Our Leith Managers, Jess and Neil (a.k.a. the party planning dream team) have been working hard to put together some great events to celebrate their birthday. They’ve come up with seven days of special events all leading up to their birthday on Sunday. Ready for it?
On Monday, it’s a Bank Holiday! There’s nothing better than an extra day to lie in…without having to fake a sick day. To kick off their celebrations, Jess and Neil are hosting a Bank Holiday Quiz on Leith. Get all 10 questions right and you’ll win a prize…if you’ve got a brain for pub quiz questions you’d be crazy to pass this up.
On Tuesday, the Royal Yacht Britannia is taking centre stage for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. As the last royal yacht built, it’s been an enduring symbol of the monarchy. It’s spent the last 13 years moored at the docks behind Leith’s Ocean Terminal but on Tuesday she’ll be shown off to the world. Join our team in Leith to celebrate the Jubilee with some great food and even better company.
On Wednesday, Zizzi is doing Cluedo! For the night, our waiters aren’t there just to serve you; they’re your potential suspects. Every waiter has a story to tell and it’ll be your job to figure out who’s lying and who’s telling the truth. If you can guess the who, the what, and the why, you’ll get your meal for free. After all, who doesn’t love a bit of murder mystery around dinner time?
On Thursday, we’re throwing a Pick a Prize night. At the end of your meal you’ll pick from 5 envelopes to reveal what you’ll be paying. Hidden among the 5 is the ever popular Free Meal card but you’ll also have a 50% Off, Free Dessert, Free Mains and (the lesser popular) Pay Full Price card in the pack. So if you’re feeling lucky come try it for yourself. You could end the night with a full belly and a full wallet.
On Friday, it’s time to drop the diets and forget about eating in moderation. We’re having a pizza eating contest and we need you to indulge a little. Starting at 5pm, it’s £7 to enter and the challenge is to eat as many margaritas as possible in 30 minutes. The winner gets a gift card for a free meal and their picture on Facebook as pizza eating champion of Leith. But don’t let their deliciousness fool you…it’ll be a whole lot of pizza for one person to handle.
On Saturday, bring the kids down! Even if the weather is bad, they’ll certainly still have fun. It’s our Kids Pizza Master Class where your mini-chefs can smash, flip and top their pizza with as many messy things they can get their hands on. Saturday is dedicated to them and with face-painting in-restaurant; even those who aren’t so culinary inclined will still have a great time.
And on Sunday, the pièce de résistance, its Leith’s 10th birthday! Every table will get a lil’ somethin’ sweet from us to help us celebrate our birthday. And the best part is; if you’re 10 years old, you get your meal on us! (Us 10 year olds have to stick together).
Jess and Neil have got a book that they’d love their regulars to sign and let them know why you love Zizzi. So if you’ve got a spare moment during your meal, just pop on over and share the love.
If you have any questions about the events please email Leith@zizzi.co.uk they’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
