Champagne and Jazz at Cake Bar at Mill Creek
Cake Bar, located at 429 North Fourth Street in Highlands, is offering a trio of events to brighten your outlook. For more information, stop in or call (828) 421-2042.
If you’re worried that your Thanksgiving holiday mood will be lacking because of this year of tumult and change, you’re not alone.
But the good folks at Cake Bar have taken this into consideration and they’ll be staging a trio of events to get you in the mood for a happy Thanksgiving and the holiday season hot on its heels.
On Saturday, November 14, Cake Bar will be staging an Afternoon Pink Me Up from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M. If you’re puzzled by whatever could constitute an “Afternoon Pink Me Up,” let’s just enumerate the basics – Cake, A Classic Car, and plenty of Laurent Perrier Champagne.
See? Did you feel a little shiver of delight at reading those ingredients?
For the Classic Car part of the equation, there’s Bubbles, a wonderfully preserved Citroën, who’ll be stationed right outside Cake Bar. She’s also an avatar for next year’s Highlands Motoring Festival and the upcoming partnership between the festival and The Bascom (see page 35).
When you add Cake Bar’s marvelously gratifying pastry selection and generous pourings of Laurent Perrier Champagne, coupled with a Citroën parked right outside, you’d be forgiven for believing you’re luxuriating in a Parisian salon.
That should be enough to lighten your mood going into Thanksgiving, and then Cake Bar has plans to launch you into the holiday season in style.
Make plans to attend A Double Shot of We 3 Swing, set for 8:00 P.M. Friday and Saturday, November 27 and 28.
We 3 Swing are a trio that’ve won a devoted following with their unique sounds. Perhaps their jazz is the perfect tonic for these unsettled times. In a strange synchronicity Luke Osteen references a jazz song playing through his mind while he dines at DonLeon’s on Page 88. (And no, we didn’t plan this. We’re not that organized.)
It’s possible that jazz and swing are the perfect counterpoints to this uneasy time we’re slogging through.
Even if that’s a shaky proposition, consider the wise, unbiased words of Jazz Pianist D.C. DowDell, “A Jazz Diet will make you hipper, thinner, taller, smarter, richer, happier & more attractive to members of both sexes.”
