The Killer Combo of Cookies and Champagne

The Hip and Urban Girl Guide hosted a Cookies and Champagne Party on Tuesday night at Arta Gallery in the Distillery District. It consisted of what you would imagine, a lots of girls drinking champagne and hovering around table upon table of home-baked cookies (it made a scrumptious sight).

Along the perimeter of the cookies perched a variety of vendors (super smart, place yourself in the middle of girls beside an open bar all hopped up on sugar and chocolate).

It was an enjoyable evening, and though I refrained from purchasing under the influence, I enjoyed perusing the items available and plan on looking some of the companies up.

However, the chaos of the actual “cookie exchange” must be noted. It reminded me of horror stories I’d heard from crazy brand name sample sales. I stood back and held the champagne glass and bag of my brave friend who attempted to elbow her way into the cookie mayhem…and I will confess her loot was simply delicious!
