I am super excited about an upcoming annual event that pretty much signals the beginning of the holiday eating season, and I'm not talking about Halloween (although I'm super excited about that, too — wait until you people see my costume). I'm talking about Sugar Rush, which happens tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6-8 p.m. at The Mall at Green Hills.
I know, driving in Green Hills during rush hour is fork-in-the-eye-worthy, but once you get to the mall, you can stick that fork in a bunch of different cakes, cupcakes, donuts, candy and ice cream until you're done. This is dessert paradise. Last year I ate so much I almost threw up ... no, really, I went honky-tonk dancing immediately after Sugar Rush. Not recommended, but no regrets.
This year, I'm starving myself all day so I can make even more room for goodies from the likes of Godiva, Riffs Fine Street Foods, Diana's Sweet Shoppe, Monchita's Homemade Cobblers, Walker Creek Toffee, Bound'ry, Chef's Market, Faye's Cake Pops, Retro Sno, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Spin Wheels, Fox's Donut Den, The Loving Pie Company, Connie Cakes and Frosted Affair. And, of course, we'll hungrily welcome back our two-time champions, The Cupcake Collection.
The event is for ages 21-and-up, and tix are only $20 each, which includes two drinks and all-you-can-eat (don't disappoint me, sugar soldiers — no wimpy eaters here!) dessert samples. Get your tickets before they sell out right here.
