A Sweet Afternoon with Sugartooth Tours

How does leisurely strolling through Chelsea & the West Village (sans kids), sampling the most delicious treats, sound to you? Not too shabby, right? Oh! You have no idea... my friend and I took part in a special Valentine's Day tour with Sugartooth Tours yesterday, and it was so much fun!

A variation of their "Sweeter than Sugar" tour, this one featured special little Valentine's Day tid bits, along with information about each shop & neighborhood we visited. As it turns out, playing tourist in your own town & getting to catch up with a friend was just what I needed after a long week with the kiddos. And while it's been a while since the two of us were on the dating circuit, we both remarked that this tour would be such a cute date idea, especially around Valentine's Day.

But let's see it in pictures, shall we? Our first stop was City Cakes in Chelsea, which in addition to the most beautiful cakes you've ever seen, also bakes INCREDIBLE 1/2 pound cookies. Yep, you read that correctly.


Next, we made our way to Chelsea Market for a stop at Amy's Bread and their famous hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows. Delish! Did you know that at the end of each day, Amy's Bread donates their extra bread to Fountain House & City Harvest (8000 lbs per month from 3 stores!) Love their charitable giving AND their hot chocolate. Win, win!

We took a walk along The High Line before cutting across the West Village to our next destination...


Chocolate Bar. Have you been? At the risk of sounding weirdly pretentious, their truffles are to die for (Hint hint... try the passion fruit)!

 

Our last stop brought us to Sweet Revenge, which prides itself on being the nation's only cupcake, wine & beer bar. Sufficed to say, I nearly rolled myself home. But you know what? Totally worth it.

It was so nice to take a mental health afternoon & be a tourist in my own town. To remember why you live here. Sugartooth Tours offers a wide variety of tour options, and it's the perfect way to spend some time with a friend, with family from out of town or a date with a special someone. Highly recommend!

 
Valentine's Tours are available this coming weekend, February 13th at 5:30pm, on the 14th at 2pm and 5:30pm, and on the 15th at 2pm and 5:30pm. The "Sweeter Than Sugar" tour is also available year round on Sunday afternoons.
