If you’re looking for something to spice up your weekend nights with family and friends, Elizabethan Desserts has a fun and wholesome way to do it. This Encinitas bakery, known for their gorgeous cakes and perfectly coiffed desserts, is turning back the hand of time every Friday and Saturday evening and hosting their own signature Vintage Game Nights.
The 1940’s-50’s style bakery, reminiscent of grandma’s house with a fireplace, Queen Anne chairs and mint green and white doily covered floors, is the perfect setting to get you nostalgic and hungry at the same time. Test your skills at old school games like Yahtzee, Connect Four and Battleship while noshing on classic desserts like housemade Twinkies, Jell-o cake and Hostess-style black and white cupcakes. Kids will love the treats while experiencing an evening of non-electronic games that mom and dad played when they were wee ones.
Sweet Treats for Parents
Everyone loves a glass of milk with their cupcake, but sometimes mom needs something a bit more fun. On any given Friday or Saturday night, you’ll sit alongside other families or groups of girlfriends enjoying classic cupcakes or cocktail-inspired cupcakes for the 21+ crowd. The cocktail-inspired cupcakes are offered at a special happy hour price of $3.25/cupcake and are ONLY available during vintage game nights or by special order.
