Brownie called me up and asked "Do you want to go to Seattle with me?" "Is this a joke? I'm a broke grad student now." "I'm in Cakespy's contest and the winner gets a trip for two to Seattle!!!" "Oh, fuck yes!" We've been working our Twitter and Facebooks for days now, and as of last night, we were 100 votes out of first place! Jesse Oleson aka Cakespy is picking a winner today so please head on over and "like" Brownie's Cookie Time cookies!!! If we win, here's what I want to visit in Seattle:
Trophy Cupcakes. After Brownie visited over three years ago (!), we've regularly gotten their newsletter. Every now and then I sneak a peek, wishing I could just stop by the bakery for some treats. Except the bakery's 2,800 miles away. Also on the list is Seattle Pie Co.'s marionberry pie! I had to keep reading about this recently, and it killed me. For savory, I'll have to turn to Marination Mobile. Korean tacos!
So please, please, please, help a freelancing (broke) grad student who's also trying to co-author a book get to Seattle!
