Yay! The weekend is HERE! After a long week of work (or play? maybe some trust fund babies are reading this), it is time to relax and have some fun.

There are lots of events to enjoy this weekend. Something for your mind (Book readings), your closet (Shopping Events) and your future (The Flair Seminar).
Things kick off on Friday night with the Bishop’s Cottage Family Dinner, 17B Aboyade Cole Street, Off Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island . At only N2500, we guarantee you’ll have a great time. Sumptuous food from Celebrity Chef Uche’s kitchen, laughs and good company.
Enjoy!
