CityBeat’s celebration of confectionery excess returns for the second annual Sugar Rush, an evening of cupcakes, ice cream, donuts, pies and pastries from local sweeteries plus dessert wines, coffee and liquor drinks. Whether you’re a Princess Lolly or more of a Lord Licorice, there will be goodies to satisfy every sweet tooth. Guests can text in their vote for their favorite treat of the night from the likes of The BonBonerie, Holtman’s Donuts, Yagoot, Donna’s Gourmet Cookies, Graeter’s and more.
There will also be a panel of sugar experts handing out special sweet awards including Too Pretty to Eat, Dentist’s Worst Nightmare, Kid in a Candy Store and Like Mama Used to Make.
A portion of event proceeds will benefit the Cincinnati Ballet, members of which will be performing at the event at 6 and 7 p.m.
