georgetown cupcake

Inspired by their grandmother—and following their passion—sisters Katherine and Sophie founded Georgetown Cupcake in 2008, in Georgetown.

Recent expansion plans include locations in Bethesda, Boston and Soho—which is the first outside the DC metro area.

Located near CB2 Soho on Mercer Street, all goods are baked on site daily—using stellar ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and Valhrona Cocoa powder.

Stars of the TLC series DC Cupcakes, watch for their new book Sweet Celebrations which is scheduled for release in October.

Thanks to cory and ben at CB2 soho—who love their cupcakes!—for this submission and photos.

CB2 Lincoln ParkWhether you’re staking a claim for a front row seat or in the lineup to show support, break out the SPF 30 for nationwide Pride Parades this Sunday, June 27th!

Chicago’s theme for 2010—suggested by InterPride, the international Pride organization—is “One Heart, One World, One Pride” while San Francisco’s theme is “Forty and Fabulous!” marking the 40th anniversary of their parade.

New York’s theme is closer to home: “Paint the Town Ruby—Stonewall 40”. This being the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and rubies being the gemstone of a fortieth anniversary— not to mention the signature shoes of Judy Garland who passed soon after the riots—it’s a match made in Pride heaven.

Since 2000, June’s been declared Pride Month, so celebrate diversity and March On!

AIDS Walk NY, 2010

What: AIDS Walk NY 2010
When
: 10:00 am, Sunday, May 16th
Where
: Central Park (enter at 59th and Fifth)
Who
: 12 CB2 team members, thousands of participants expected

Set your alarm clocks so you don’t miss it—the 25th AIDS Walk New York is this Sunday, May 16th.

CB2 Soho has been participating for just a few years but this time we held a t-shirt design contest for our team. The winning concept shown above was designed by part-timers Katie C and Emerson.

They were inspired by our iconic circular logo, but with a twist. The circles encompass associates “walking” in this amazing annual event. They chose red for the shoulder patch application since its comparable to red ribbons worn on lapels to show support for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The 6 mile walk starts in Central Park and loops in and around the upper west side—check out the route here and we hope to see you there!

Thanks to skip, soho sales, for this submission.
