>>>Before you sip Cosmopolitans and slip on your best pair of Manolo Blahnik’s next weekend with your girlfriends, you might want to stop in for the Hello Cupcake’s Sex and the City 2 special edition treats (*Pictured above). We love this idea. The Dupont cupcake haven has created cupcakes representative of our four favorite characters: Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and of course, Samantha. The cupcakes are offered now through May 31, 2010 for $3.50 a pop. Rotating daily, here are your options:

Carrie – Cosmopolitan

Lime/triple sec cake with cranberry lime frosting, pink sugar sprinkles, and an edible fondant stiletto decoration

Charlotte – Vanilla Rose

Rose scented vanilla cake with rose and vanilla bean buttercream, topped with a crystallized rose petal

Miranda – Chocolate Cabernet

Chocolate cabernet cake with chocolate cabernet ganache glaze and an edible fondant martini glass decoration

Samantha – Manhattan

Sweet vermouth-soaked chocolate cake with bourbon vanilla bean buttercream and a maraschino cherry

Yum with a New York State of Mind.

>>>We love a good cause. This Sunday, May 23, 2010, Cafe Green will host a benefit to raise funds for the Louisiana Gulf Response Involvement Team (GRIT), which is a coordinated effort between several non-profit and governmental conservation and environmental organizations to assist in BP Oil Spill recovery. Ten percent (10%) of all waffle sales on Sunday will go directly toward GRIT. Patrons can look forward to a heaping helping of vegan goodness: waffles with your choice of Earth Balance (margarine) and Maple Syrup, Peanut Butter, Strawberries, Blueberries, Mango’s, Chocolate Sauce, Raw Agave Nectar, Vegan Whipped Topping, Pineapples, Cinnamon Apples, Bananas, or Candied Walnuts.
