Event (and recipe round-up): OMG Red Velvet!

If you attended the Signpost Launch Party in December, then you probably already know that Signpost is a website where you can post and share deals in your city. Know of a $1 oyster night at your favorite local spot? 2-for-1 dinner deal? Post it and spread the word!

Anyway, it appears that Signpost is using its deal power for good, planning a sweet benefit. On February 8th, from 8pm to 9:30pm, the Fort Point location of Flour Bakery will be overrun by Boston chefs serving up spectacular red velvet treats (and hungry red velvet lovers eating the treats!). The event benefits Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a non-profit organization that facilitates the recovery and distribution of perishable and un-served foods that would otherwise be thrown away and wasted.

(Note: This isn't a BFB event, but it seems like something food bloggers would be interested in, so I wanted to share it with you! Also, Boston food blogger Elizabeth of Free Food Boston is a community manager for Signpost.)

Your $30 ticket (or $40 if you buy at the door) gains you access to red velvet edibles from the following businesses and chefs:
The Chocolate Tarte (If you've met me in person, you've probably already heard me raving about how The Chocolate Tarte makes the best cupcakes in the world.)
Flour Bakery
Hungry Mother
Poe's Kitchen
SoCo Creamery (You might remember their delicious ice cream from the BFB launch party!)
Susu Bakery
Sweet Cupcakes
Union Bar + Grille
Will Gilson  
Cullen-Cakes by Marianne Gries (Art is the Handmaid of Human Good)
Sounds pretty irresistible to me! I will sadly not be able to attend, but I look forward to drooling over all your photos and recaps!
