Hi lads and ladies!
Whew! This past week has been super duper crazy! Alicia and I had six events over the past 7 days. We were at a book launch event hosted by MediaBistro.com, a VOTE or DIE event hosted by DeclareYorself.org, the After The Jump Fest sponsored by Gen Art, Secret Project Robot and Live With Animals, and finally, at the Brick Theater for a rad awards ceremony and boozy afterparty. A big SHOUT OUT to all our friends, new and old (Chelsea and Tom, Ivy and Thew, Gyda, dude with the huge appetite for sweets at the Brick, Rachel and Erik, Grayson and Monica, Brian Zeger, and lots of others that shared their tips for stuff and smiled at us).
We have a week or so off to handle our personal/other professional lives, as well as work on the administrative parts of the bake sale (i.e. making awesome new summery graphics!) and menu planning. Popsicles will be a main staple (hopefully, if we can work out the cooler sitch well enough) at the next bake sales. For the hottest days, you can count on us for some Lemonade-Basil, Wacky Watermelon, or Strawberry-Mint icepops! And if everyone is good, maybe some vanilla puddin' pops (yes, they are delish, but are they refreshing enough? Let me know!)
We are also expanding to offer catering and delivery services! Our new arm is called Sweet Tooth by Lila, headed by Lila Dobbs, lady extraordinaire. Lila has tons of experience creating and cooking for crowds. The menus, pricing, etc. can be found here. We're even having a tasting event on Wed, July 2nd at 7pm at Brooklyn Kitchen (616 Lorimer Street). The kids over at Brooklyn Kitchen are offering a 10% discount for guests of the tasting! The sample menu is $7 per person, but that also includes a free pale or brown ale from Brooklyn Brewery. Come and hang out! RSVP here.
We've got some other exciting stuff in the works, including some really fun events at the end of July and August, a fun project including vintage recipe boxes and artist designed recipe cards, a recipe/baking/foodie ZINE, and other stuff as well. Yeah, summer, keep it comin.
