Have your wine and eat it too...

The perfect accompaniment to a wine tasting or wine themed bridal shower-wine cupcakes. Now you don't have to just drink wine but you can enjoy your spirits in your desserts too. Enjoy Cupcakes has taken our love of wine to the next level by offering wine cupcakes. The California based cupcake bakery (don't worry-they ship nationwide) features flavors like Citrus SauvignonBlanc, Cherry Vanilla Merlot, Chocolate Blackberry Syrah, and Pomegranate Chardonnay. Each cupcake sounds as good as the name-the description of Citrus Sauvignon Blanc is a Sauvignon Blanc soaked cake, with fresh grapefruit, lemon curd center and frosted with a wine, cream cheese frosting that’s speckled with citrus zest and topped with wine soaked sugar crystals. Yum! These would be great to go along with the wines you're serving at the tasting. Wine and cupcakes might just be the next wine and cheese...

Bachelorette Party Idea: Patsy's Bridal Shower

Live around Mesa, Arizona-if so the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre has a great bachelorette party idea for you-Patsy's Bridal Shower. Patsy's Bridal Shower is an interactive comedy (think along the lines of Tony n' Tina's Wedding) that chronicles the first encounter by two dissimilar families on the eve of their children's nuptials. The groom's family heralds from a gated community in Paradise Valley, while the bride's family of modest means resides in a trailer park. aka cash meets trash When unexpected relatives and friends drop in, sparks fly as the couple finalizes plans for the wedding. Best of all, as a guest at the bridal shower, you will play along to help make decisions about the upcoming wedding, including playing bridal shower games. Staged in a intimate room, you will feel like a part of the family. Best of all, the cast will leave it up to you to decide which family. Critics have raved that Patsy's Bridal Shower "overflows with wackiness" and "explodes with goofy fun that will have everyone laughing." This show would be a great bachelorette party or the beginning of a great start to one.
