Help Sandy Victims by Eating Cupcakes

Posted By on Fri, Nov 9, 2012 at 1:15 PM

If buying delicious salsa to support Sandy relief efforts isn't your thing, maybe you'll like this sweet deal: Now through Sunday the 11th, local favorite Kara's Cupcakes is selling a Red Cross Tuxedo cupcake ($3.75) -- chocolate cake with bourbon-vanilla frosting -- and donating proceeds to the Red Cross.

To be really virtuous, you should also grab Kara's new pumpkin pie flavor (pumpkin spice cake filled with caramel and topped with buttercream frosting) -- the proceeds benefit Meals on Wheels S.F. all this month.

And on Monday, Sprinkles Cupcakes down in Palo Alto (and all their other locations across the U.S.) will be donating proceeds from their red velvet cupcake sales to the Red Cross.

Helping people out by eating cupcakes. Is this a great country or what?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
