Oh man, I felt so guilty after this. This event had a great variety of different desserts (the highlights for me being truffles, mini crème brulee, and ice cream from Wanderlust Creamery!)

Pace yourself or go for it all within half an hour – there are no rules! (Just a ton of calories, but who is counting!) It's a great way to check out a bunch of the cities great dessert options without having to drive all around town to each! 


If you've got a sweet tooth, you'll love this event. I attended this event with my girlfriend and it was a fun and sugar-filled afternoon. The event space was particularly cool as well - the upstairs are was a neat design feature and the outdoor patio area with tables and a bit of shade was great as well. The folks working at each restaurant booth were incredibly friendly and informative - it was nice getting to hear about each vendor, their shop, and the dessert options. Plenty of the choices were out of the ordinary/unique sweets, but there were certainly some classic ones as well. Amongst my favorites were the spire cake rolls, the lavender creme brule, the mini donuts, and the banana pudding.
