A great event is drawing nearer and nearer with every day this week. As we inch towards the weekend (it's only Monday...I know!), we are simultaneously inching towards an amazing event showcasing desserts from prominent dessert makers all over New England.
This event will be making its second appearance and as an inner-city bostonian, I am very happy to hear that it will be being held at Westin Copley Place; very close to me...and very easy to get to for others!
So let's get down to logistics, the event will be on this coming Saturday the 18th running from noon to five. Tickets are 35 dollars, but don't get too huffy about the price, because there will be enough exquisite desserts, chocolates, ice cream, dessert wine (!!!) and more to fill your stomach, tantalize your pallet and easily justify the ticket price. Although the event is open to the public from noon to five, the festivities begin on Friday with an opening night party at the Greatest bar near North Station. Only VIP ticket holders are guaranteed a place and in case you are in the mood to really experience dessert paradise, these are tickets are available (online only), for 40-55 dollars. If you hurry you can secure a spot for you and whoever you are going with: http://www.nedessertshowcase.com/tickets.html. General admission tickets will be available at the door, this just depends on whether you are willing to leave such an amazing opportunity up to chance....the risk is up to you! In case you still need convincing, Finale will be there, as will cakeology, Treat cupcake bar, the Chilly Chow and so on and so forth!
Basically, everyone who is anyone in the dessert world will be present...I consider myself a somebody in the dessert world...even if I am always see, on the receiving end...either way, I will be there...will you?
