When you think back to the good ol' days of being a kid again, you might remember a little board game that brought you joy. You'd wander through the Gumdrop Mountain and the Peppermint Forest to come toe-to-toe with Princess Lollypop on your way to the Candy Castle, where King Kandy awaited your sweet victory. You can relive the splendor of Candyland at Beans & Barlour this weekend — and they have some tasty treats ready for you.
At what they're calling the Candyland Costume Party, Beans & Barlour will host a wonderland of sweets this Saturday, February 8, 2020.
Before the party even starts, Beans & Barlour told Narcity they'll open up shop at 11 a.m., offering waffles and bottomless champagne that you can enjoy in their indoor or outdoor spaces.
The party will officially begin at 2 p.m., running until nearly midnight, bringing with it an array of boozy goodies and fun — including a performance by stilt walker Nicole Hays until 4 p.m.
Staff will also join in the festivities, decking themselves out as characters from the beloved childhood board game. Owner Story Stuart will be in attendance as the Queen Frostine herself!
Your booze 'n' bites will also be on theme, referencing little bits of the Candyland universe.
You'll find slurpable boozy slushies on the menu, including Gloppy's Spiked Frozen Hot Chocolate or Princess Lolly's Cotton Candy Slush — a cotton candy-flavored slush spiked with vodka and peach liqueur, topped with cotton candy whipped cream, peach puree, gummy worms, sprinkles, and lollypops.
If you're a chocolate lover or a sundae saint, you'll be drooling over the ice cream options.
The Chocolate Mountain Fudge Sundae is available both virgin or spiked, or you can enjoy the liquor-filled King Kandy Candy Castle Sundae with chocolate liqueur ice cream, vodka infused key lime ice cream and strawberries, topped with cotton candy whipped cream, a waffle cone of pineapple dole whip, lollipops, sprinkles, gummy worms, and licorice.
Other treats to tantalize your tastebuds include Gramma Nutt's Peanut Brittle Latte and Queen Frostine's Sweet Cream Latte — and you can't forget about the free jello shots included with your beverage and bite purchases!
Additional entertainment will include games and a prize wheel for a chance to win special surprises.
Whether you're a Candyland fan or simply happy to snack on sweets, you won't want to miss this delicious shin-dig at Beans & Barlour.
