FROST ME Gourmet Cupcakes Now Open

Last week, Seaport Village got some Food Network celebrities.  The much anticipated FROST ME Gourmet Cupcakes is now open at the village and the lines are not stopping.

FROST ME specializes in hand crafted, one of a kind cupcakes.  They even have gluten free options!  The delicious cupcake joint took home the trophy on Food Network’s season 9 of Cupcake Wars and with good reason.  Their cupcakes are decadent and out of this world.  Flavors include toasted coconut, lemon poppy seed, classic chocolate ganache, key lime raspberry and so much more. Move over, Sprinkles.  You’ve got some competition! 

Not only are their cupcakes extraordinary, FROST ME has the adorable store front to go with it.  Fresh flowers on the tables  and wait a minute, a 24 hour extraction iced coffee machine?! This thing is way cool.  It extracts decaf and regular iced coffee within 24 hours.  I mean, can you think of a more awesome way to brew iced coffee?

Okay okay, I’ve said enough.  You’ll have to come experience FROST ME Grourmet Cupcakes for yourself! Make sure to stop in this quaint little cupcake store to have dessert and an iced coffee.  The store is open 10am-10pm daily.

Michael Flohr Art Exhibition- “A Moment in Time”

The Seaport Village EC Gallery is hosting another amazing art exhibition.  This time for Michael Flohr.

On June 20-22, San Diego native and artist Michael Flohr will host a three day exhibition at Exclusive Collections’ Seaport Village Gallery, “A Moment in Time”. The exhibition’s theme will focus on the artist’s travels and observations of city life.

Who is Michael Flohr?  Flohr, who has been named a Top Artist by Art Business News for three consecutive years, aims to capture the human experience through his urban impressionist techniques. He allows the viewer to experience a timeless moment by depicting city life and streetscapes. Flohr draws inspiration from his surroundings, many of which include San Diego landmarks like Coronado, the Del Mar Racetrack and Balboa Park. His latest fine art limited edition painting, Romance in the Rain, depicts a couple sharing an umbrella in Italy’s Piazza Navona. His technique of using square brush strokes draws the eye in, almost making the viewer feel as if they are experiencing the very moment he depicts.

So, come join EC Gallery and get lost in “A Moment in Time”.  The gallery will host complimentary food, wine and champagne.  To RSVP, click here
