Which Little Piggy Build a House of Toast?

Drink, Shop & Do is a cafe for anyone who has ever had a crazy idea. Originally set up as a pop-up by friends, Kristie Bishop and Coralie Sleap in 2009, it has since become a permanent Kings Cross locale on Caledonian Road, where they have been able to combine all their crazy ideas under one roof. Drink, Shop & Do have all kinds of quirky events for people who want to do something that falls on just the right side of looney. Here are a few examples:

Pimp Your Shades

Use It Up and Wear It Out will help you put some bling into your sunglasses

Vintage Hair & Makeup
10th September, 7pm, £10-£15

Complete your snazzy look with a vintage hair-do. A beehive, perhaps?

11th September, 7pm, Free

Celebrate actor/comedian, Bill Murray, through clay for a chance to win a free round of drinks.

National Video Games Day
12th September, Free before 11pm, £3 after

I have no idea if National Video Games Day is real or if someone just made it up, but either way it is a good excuse to play on retro games consoles and drink a Princess Peach Cocktail.

Learn the dance moves to Beyonce's Crazy in Love.
