Dessert and drink pairings send a clear message about their consumer: cupcakes and cocktails say, "sophisticated," while pudding skin and moonshine say, "get off my lawn." Send the right message with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket to the La Jolla New Generations Rotary Club's “Cupcakes & Cocktails” event in Del Mar (a $40 value). The three-hour event will be held at the Del Mar Powerhouse on Sunday, July 24, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The La Jolla New Generations Rotary Club's “Cupcakes & Cocktails” event invites guests for an afternoon of tasty sweets and delicious drinks in a spacious, lodge-style venue overlooking the beach. Over the course of the event, guests can socialize and compare frosting beards as they nibble on two cupcakes and exchange two drink tickets for cocktails or beers by Blue Moon and Longboard, all for a worthy cause. Listen to the reverberations of live music in the natural lighting of the main room, migrate up to the second-floor deck to get a lofty view of the coast, or step out onto the shaded terrace to enjoy the fresh, summer air amid flowers and park benches. Each guest will also be entered into a raffle for chances to win rewards from an Aveda salon, goodies from Sprinkles Cupcakes, a cash prize, and a lifetime supply of leftover ticket stubs.
All of the proceeds from "Cupcakes & Cocktails" will go to funding research for Dercum's disease at UCSD. After the event, attendees can continue to comingle over dinner at one of the area's upscale restaurants or mosey on outdoors for a romantic stroll in the ocean.
