Detox, relapse, cupcakes

Sorry to play the enabler to any sugar junkies, but if one can avoid consuming sweets this week, that'll make the saccharine hit from the petite baked goods at 1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity next weekend even more intoxicating. And, hey, like the name says, it benefits charities, including Animal Place, St. John’s Shelter Program for Women & Children, and A Well-Fed World. Miniature-cake dealers—er, bakers—on hand are 24K Chocolate Cafe, Dalila's Cupcakery, Sassy Sweets by Monique, Sweet Stuff Cakery and others. Score some at the Tower Bridge Bistro (100 Capitol Mall) on Saturday, April 6, from 2 to 5 p.m. Check out for more info.
