This Friday, February 5th, City Wine Merchant
will host a wine and cupcake tasting with LolaPearl Bake Shoppe, from 5:30 to 8PM, at 715 Main Street.
LolaPearl is the product of Lindsay Gregg, and is named after her two grandmothers, Lola and Pearl, who introduced Gregg to the art of love through cupcakes at a very early age. Gregg, whose father is local watercolor artist, Bob Gregg, has found her creativity through baking, and is shopping for storefronts for the near future in the Allentown or Elmwood sections of the city.
"Spread the love, right?" Lindsay says. "I've been working out of my house, taking orders and filling them when my day job permits, but this tasting with Eric Genau at City Wine Merchant is going to be great."
Lindsay (below) isn't divulging exactly what flavors she'll be serving, but she says she worked up some special concoctions in honor of Valentine's Day, and that Genau has paired them nicely with wines, and not necessarily dessert wines.
She is admitting to her signature red velvet variety, and says all the other flavors have been taste-tested on her co-workers at her day job at Independent Health. On Friday, Lindsay is eager to see what the general public thinks during this free event.

, and be sure to come in for the tasting. It'll be a sweet way to kick off the weekend, and if you like what you see, or rather taste, Lindsay is ready to take orders.
