Thank you KISS Army! I just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your continued loyalty and support, of both KISS and the KISS Coffeehouse! Without you, there would absolutely be no KISS Coffeehouse! Over the past 5 years, thousands, and thousands of "soldiers" from the KISS Army have supported us, literally, from coast to coast, as demonstrated by 2006's Grand Opening, and more recently, 2011's 5 Year Anniversary Party, with hundreds of you (over 500 in fact) traveling from over 30 states, and various countries, to visit Myrtle Beach to celebrate with Eric and Tommy, and to be a part of KISSTORY!

As a matter of fact, over the last 5 years, members of the KISS Army have made their way to Myrtle Beach from Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia, just to name a few. And because of you, we've been recognized as the "Best of the Best" - the "Best Coffee Shop" in Myrtle Beach for the last 3 consecutive years, and have been featured in various national publications such as The USA Today, Billboard Magazine, and most recently, Rolling Stone Magazine.

I'd also like to thank KISS! I'd like to personally thank Paul and Gene for their grand opening support/guest appearance, and in general, their continued support of the KISS Coffeehouse "brand", as well as their on-going input/feedback relative to menu, new product development, and marketing. I'd also like to thank Eric and Tommy for their continued support of anniversary parties, as both have made multiple guest appearances at the coffeehouse.

MODELS WANT TO ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE!
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Image of the Day: Models Wanna Rock & Roll All Nite in Anthony Vaccarello and Full KISS Makeup

By Hayley Phelan

Forget about David Bowie as a fashion muse. It’s all about KISS. For V Magazine‘s music issue, models Pauline Van Der Cruysse, Cate Underwood, Nikole Luna and Amanda Ware got in touch with their rock & roll sides in full-on KISS regalia. The models are dressed in head-to-toe Anthony Vaccarello and we must say, we’ve never seen face paint look quite so chic. Don’t you think they’d make for an awesome KISS cover band? Let’s try to make it happen.

GENE SIMMONS STATUE IN COLOMBIA
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

KISS,

My friend Juan Pablo Garcia is an artist in Colombia SA. He made this statue of Gene Simmons on New Years Eve. The custom in the city of Pasto, Colombia is to burn the old year away and start fresh. He always has a theme for the old year and this year Gene was his inspiration. In the past few years he's also done the pink panther, sponge bob square pants, batman, amongst others. He is a huge fan of yours!

Best regards,
Luis M. Chamorro
