Need Something To Do Friday?


Want to have your cake and eat it, too? Well, we can't help you there. But we can help you find bits of cake formed into oh-so-convenient balls that you can scoop up during your lunch hour, which is almost as good.

The Cake Ballers, purveyors of pint-sized, uber-moist sugary confections, are the adult equivalent of Santa Claus: They always deliver goodies worth waiting for but are kind of elusive. The ballers' North Pole is an adorable, chandelier-laden space adjacent to the Rose Room at 720 W. Idaho St., Ste. 40, that functions as the Cake Ballers/Eye Candy Event Design headquarters. And though you can follow The Cake Ballers on Facebook to get the scoop on upcoming events, you generally can't pop in for a treat every time you get a hankering.

Except for today. The Cake Ballers/Eye Candy have been hosting a marketplace all week, and today is your last day to drop in and load up on macaroons, pretzels and cake balls. From noon-2 p.m., you can stop by and purchase some afternoon pick-me-ups, which start at $1.50.
