While in the rest of the country April showers typically bring May flowers, here in the Old Pueblo April heat brings May sweets! Kicking off a week of delicious deals on cookies, cakes and confections, Yelp Tucson celebrated with the launch of Yelp’s Sugar High at a new hip downtown venue, Rialto Arts & Antiquities. Tasty treats towered over attendees, while the terrific tunes of Shaky Bones Jazz Ensemble set the super sweet mood. This event marked the beginning of a sweet-filled week sure to leave you with a definite sugar high.
To get glucose levels going gaga Tucson businesses came out to offer sweet samplings of their decadent dessert-y items and yelpers devoured the decadent delights! Chelsea P is “officially hooked” on Hub’s rich and creamy ice cream and we heard she may or may not have bought a whole pint before going home! Michelle C claims this creamy concoction is “sexy decadent goddess” at it’s best.
Channeling sweet treats from across the pond Chocolate Iguana (see what we did there) provided some seriously sensuous scones. For the candy lovers in the crowd, chocolates and sour chews were up for grabs and Eric G found that the “treats were plentiful” with sugar taste “enough to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.” Berry lemonade, cookie bars, brownies, oh my! Café a la Cart brought out the best and blew yelpers away with their tasty treats and mega-sized offerings.
Topping Jide F's list of must eats was the mini red velvet and butter cream cupcakes from Mini’s Cupcakes. These bite sized beauties were both a feast for the eyes and his taste buds. A special thanks to Shaky Bones for belting out some seriously sweet beats, and to Shawdon, Jacob and Andy at Rialto Arts & Antiquities for providing us with such a cool place. Thanks also to Billy K for the part pics! Missed the launch but still in the mood for some sugar? Check out what folks have to say here! Stay Sweet Tucson!
