Girl Scout cookies are flawless on their own, but if you’re looking for new and exciting ways to enjoy them (instead of by the sleeve), get to the UMass Club (1 Beacon Street, 32nd floor) on Thursday, November 21st, for Cookies & Cocktails. Sponsored by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, this event puts your favorite boxed cookies in the hands of local chefs for a one-of-a-kind cookie competition. Come try ‘em all and vote on your favorite in support of local Girl Scouts and female leadership development. Tickets are $50 and include all the cookie creations, a complimentary featured cocktail, passed snacks, and a silent auction. This is a 21+ event, and a cash bar will be available. Check out the participating chefs including talented confectioners like Brian Poe of the Tip Tap Room, Michelle Boland of Oak + Rowan, Kate Holowchik of Ledger and Ryan Pike of Bar Boulud and the Mandarin Oriental. and sign up here.
