Saint Cupcake

I first learned about Saint Cupcake on Valentine’s Day last year when my hubby saved an email I’d sent him from Daily Candy and placed an order from the truly heavenly cupcake shop on the west coast. Luckily, he kept the tradition alive again this year and had this amazing box of sweet treats delivered just in time for the holiday.

Here are a few pictures before, during, and after assembly. I have no idea how they keep their ingredients so fresh, but the final outcome is truly divine.

   

The Drowning Men

I’m still kicking myself for leaving behind my camera last night and missing an opportunity to capture what could have been an opportunity to meet and chat with California’s own The Drowning Men, a band of four longtime friends who have been part of other collaborations but have recently formed this ensemble that did more than just warm up the crowd for Flogging Molly.

As promised, the band waited around their table in the Fillmore’s intimate lobby trying to personally sell us their t-shirts and music. While I wish I could offer more than just this brief introduction to their music, the melodic runs with moody undertones and revival rock influences are worth a listen:

The Drowning Men will be joining Flogging Molly on all their tour dates. Click here for more info.

Magic City Memoirs

The official trailer for Magic City Memoirs has been released. Tickets go on sale tomorrow for its world premier at the 2011 Miami International Film Festival on Friday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the historic Gusman Theatre in Downtown Miami. If the trailer is any indication, this is pure, real-deal Miami private school drama (I should know). Cant wait to see it.
