For weeks I have been trying to convince Kristen of Capital City Bakery that she should add an olive cupcake to the menu. It’s so NOT going to happen because I guess she has standards or whatever but she made me these adorable fondant olive cupcakes for my birthday! They were amazing because it turns out Kristen makes the best cupcake around. I am so excited that her new bakery trailer is opening TODAY with a cupcake filled Grand Opening Party at the Longhorn food court on Rio Grande & MLK. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to have instant access to her baked goods and that day is finely here! If you haven’t tried them yet, you are in for a treat (literally). Be there for the grand opening party or cry at home, it’s your choice.
This Saturday the San Antonio vegans are throwing a huge potluck out at Sunny Day Farms! If you want to meet some of the sweetest animals around, hold a Pygmy goat, or rub a giant pig’s belly this is the weekend to go! Sunny Day is super kid friendly so bring your small humans too, if you have some. If you need a ride check out Vegans Rock Austin.
Also, Counter Culture continues their soft opening and they have expanded their hours and added weekend brunch. I went last week and it was all I hoped it would be. The best part was that I didn’t have to get up early, it goes until 3!
This Sunday there will also be a book signing and dessert potluck for the new cookbook Sticky Fingers at MonkeyWrench books on north loop. On Sundays MonkeyWrench gives a free Red Rabbit Donut with ever purchase so if you’ve like some sweets with your anarchy you are in luck!
I’m really excited to work on a bunch of gardening projects, go swimming, hit the renegade craft fair and accomplish lots of things…really…it’s going to happen.
Wish me luck!
