Free Candy: now with details
Via co-founder Amanda Doyle:
Remember last week, when I said to clear your calendar? Well, if you've been waiting to exhale, here are all the pertinent details to make you wish away the days until Sunday arrives...
Sunday, May 4
Free Candy Baby Shower and Last Show Before Maternity Leave!
Hartford Coffee Company, 3974 Hartford (@ Roger) in Tower Grove South
First, the baby shower part: well, I'm pregnant to bustin', so you're going to have to endure a little pregnancy talk. I'll try to avoid the gorier parts of the childbirth class, but I can't make any promises on behalf of my guest co-host, Maddie Earnest.
No gifts for me, please, BUT: we'd love you to bring a little something to donate to Nurses for Newborns, a fabulous nonprofit here in town (and known nationwide) that sends trained nurses on home visits to the most vulnerable babies (like those born to teens and the mentally and physically challenged.) We will have a collection bin and hope you'll consider donating things like: diapers (ONLY size Newborns, 4, 5 & 6); baby wipes; baby sunscreen; receiving blankets; baby towels; etc. See the list here for their needs: http://www.nfnf.org/mo_wishlist.php
Once you've helped out, your rewards will overflow: guests on Sunday's show include Cupcake Stef (she of cupcakeproject.blogspot.com fame, natch...and yeah, she's packin' cakes) and Post-Dispatch columnist Sylvester Brown. Bring your questions! Bring your appetite! Bring some diapers, for Pete's sake!
And don't worry. We won't let you get outta there without a healthy dose of Town Talk.
