Yum! Luck [On The Town]

1 Jun

Last night I stumbled upon a sweet happening at Madewell in University Village – Molly Moon’s book signing! This was especially awesome because 1) I had no idea MM had a book and 2) free ice cream sundaes and sorbet cocktails.

  • Not just any sundae – a chocolate ice cream, chocolate syrup topped with fresh whipped cream, sprinkled with bee pollen sugar sundae
  • Not just any sorbet cocktail – the Suzie Bee cocktail ( see recipe below)

After a particularly busy and expensive series of book signings this fall, I had sworn them off and decided not to feel obliged to buy the books, just listen to the authors. Well, that went straight out the window last night. TIP: If you’re an author thinking about how to make the most of book signings, offer ice cream sundaes. Duh. Failing that, approach a shopper who may not even be there for your signing and compliment her necklace. After a little mutual adoration society banter back and forth, she will more than likely buy your book.

Bonus cute factoid – I can really appreciate Molly’s commitment to a color. She chose her turquoise necklace and her Sharpie to match the molly moon blue!

The book signing tour continues for a while – maybe you can catch Molly on one of her next stops.
