Why is Rulin' at the Ministry such an irresistible dish? Because it has the perfect recipe - first blend two wonderful DJs, Todd "the god" Terry and CJ Mackintosh, add the best sound system in London, chuck in a live set from sexy diva Andrea Mendez, and you have something special. Then mix Frankie Foncett and Justin Burkman's bar-room set, and sprinkle with an album launch courtesy of the disco-loving Carwash crew. Mmmmm, delicious. 11pm-10am Sat, pounds 15 103 Gaunt St, London SE1 (0171-378 6528)
