Bringing Pop Pies to the People!!

Sweet Angel Benefit
There are SO many food events going on this weekend! There's New Amsterdam, there's Greenpoint Food, a Hot Chocolate Crawl, too many for us to talk about, so we'll give you three highlights.

Saturday morning we will be baking away in preparation for the "Sweet Angel" Benefit Cookie Swap. It's a charity event to benefit the Lower Eastside Girls Club and their new cafe at Bowery Poetry Club! That's right, feel good about filling a sweet cookie tin full of baked goods!! For those of you who were tantalized by the pictures of pop pies, we've committed to making five dozen of them! This may be your only chance to ever taste one, unless you know Brownie and are willing to throw her dollar, dollar bills (they're really labor-intensive!) It's $15 to get in, and you can buy your tickets here. We're hoping that this sells out, and everyone is deliciously filled with treats-I've heard some of the others and I may have to even snatch a few goodies. The benefit is from 1pm to 3pm at the Bowery Poetry Club.

Cookie Takedown
And because you'll still want some more cookies on Sunday, there is the next installment of the Takedowns taking place at the Bell House. Yes, it's time to fill up on 30 different types of cookies! And free spiked eggnog! All for $10! 6:30PM! Bell House! Buy tickets here! DO IT!!!

Cookies & Singing @ Union Pool
More cookies! Me So Hungry, This Frontier Needs Heroes, & Justice of the Unicorns are throwing the 2nd Annual Cookie Contest & Sing-a-Long at Union Pool! More of a cookie party than an actual contest, this shindig kicks off at 8pm, is absolutely free to get in, but you may want to thank Union Pool by buying a beer. Double points if you get busy in the bathroom (not that I would EVER do ANYTHING like that because I'd never! Well, maybe just once to see. I blame it on the photo booth.)

I'm baking in the Cookie Takedown, woot! That makes my urge to go to the Cookie Swap such a tough one - a great cause, but I know I'm going to be cookie'd out on Sunday...

I just want to try a pop pie!
