Now that my blood sugar levels have returned to normal and I’ve recovered from my self induced coma I can tell you about a fabulous experience I had last weekend. I, along with approximately 60 other bloggers, writers and sugar lovers were a part of The Broke Socialite Does…..Sugar Coma. This was a tour of Atlanta eateries where the participants got to sample the fabulous confections created by some of Atlanta’s best chefs.
Our tour began at the unassuming Le Fais Do Do. This space was our meeting place. I wouldn’t exactly call it a restaurant because it can be whatever you imagine: wedding hall, club, party room, diner, etc. The wonderful owner, Marie, gave us a tour and I was breathtaken by its potential. No matter what your event, Le Fais Do Do can accomodate. With a fully functioning kitchen and dressing rooms, Le Fais Do Do can be a wedding hall, banquet room, or dance hall. It’s a definate must see.
After touring the facility we were treated to the best meal I’ve had in a very long time. The lunch was catered by Black Tie Barbecue . And after a week, I’m still dreaming about the food. We dined on beautifully cooked chicken, salmon, rice, and bok choi. The meal was absolutely perfect in every way- did I mention the lovely salad with fresh strawberries? I truly sat at the table thinking about stuffing my entire face into the rice bowl and inhaling every grain.
We were then treated to wrapped cupcakes from Amanda of Love ‘n Cupcakes. I got a chocolate coconut cupcake! Once I saw the deliciousness that was handed to me I knew it was going to be a long afternoon of pure glutony. We hopped into our Cadillac 2010 SRX’s that were so generously donated and off we were on a world wind adventure all through the streets of Atlanta. Here are our stops:
West Egg Cafe! Oh my, the fantastic red velvet cup cake I devoured was sinful, truly sinful!
On to Bakeshop where executive chef and owner, Jonathan St. Hilaire, literally gave us pounds of sweets to eat while there AND to take home!
Next it was off to Noon Midtown where I unknowingly had some spiked hot chocolate. I got a little tipsy, and even won a t-shirt and gift certificate! Thanks, Katie (for the buzz and the prizes).
Our last leg of the tour was Little Cake Bakery. By this time I felt like a stuffed pig so I was thankful that chef, Kristia, had a box for each of us packed with goodies to take home.
The afternoon was fabulous and an experience like no other. The Broke Socialite out did herself and I am anxioulsy awaiting the next TheBroke Socialite Does…….
