Hits don't lie

If you liked coming to Kiss & Make Up, you might well be interested to know about Push The Button, a night dedicated to ALL THE HITS from 1990 to TODAY and BEYOND. Should be fun. And it's free before 10pm too. If you fancy it, head over to the Facebook page, make them feel wanted and say you'll be there.

My I-don't-have-to-run day

This Sunday, come down to the Vauxhall Griffin for a browse through the Sunday papers, a Bloody Mary and a delicious roast dinner.
Food is served from about 2pm until sometime after 4, but you're advised to come down earlier rather than later as they can sell out pretty quickly. (It's been very busy over the last few weeks).
From 1.30 until 6pm, gentle pops, wistful melodies and some soothing tunes will this week be supplied by Kiss & Make Up's Stuart. And you might like to know that Sunday Supplement DJ Hayley is running the London Marathon on the same day.
If you'd like to, you can sponsor her here:
That's all.

EDIT: Also, Hannah from work is running it too! And you can sponsor her here.
