You’ve been pacing yourself for Christmas dinner since Thanksgiving; relying heavily on will power, as in 100-calorie packs. Needless to say your taste buds have been left to suffer, and you fear they’re planning a midnight craving of catastrophic proportions. To ward off disaster you visit Nothing Bundt Cakes; to keep your buds playing nice with a sweet offering.

You’re young, smart, and single… ish. Seriously though, you love having a boyfriend (especially when there’s a spider on the wall) but as of late you have been re-thinking your one flavor arrangement.

Your ex was wrong about a lot of things. Take his opinion that owning 285 pairs of shoes meant you didn’t need a 286th. As if. So now that you’ve clearly moved on (you even called him to tell him just that!), it’s time to pack up your surveillance equipment and move on to sweeter options. First stop: Just opened TreyBCakes in Midtown.

You still can’t hear Pop Goes the Weasel without a smile spreading across your face. Memories of warm summer days, dashing inside to grab some quarters, standing on the curb, craning your neck to see all the icy cold sweets of the day. Yeah, the ice cream man days may be gone, but the joy of frozen confections need not be – Face Face opens in Davis!

You’ve always suspected your genetic code includes a little bit more than spice than sugar (you weren’t the nicest girl on the playground.) Still, you’re always in the mood for something (or everything) nice. Especially when it comes from Downtown’s darling new Sugar and Spice Bakery.

Chocolate Jack-O-Lanterns at Ginger Elizabeth, Midtown Trick-or-Treat & Costume Pooch Parade, True Blood Hallow’s Eve at Lounge ON20, Trick-or-Treating Parties at The Fountains and Koukla Kids, and tours of “Mansion After Dark” and The Haunted House at Maines Mansion. Here’s TwinSoup’s thoughts on this Halloween Weekend…
