Gimme Gimme Pillow French Toast at SNOOZE 2/9

Oh my gosh, I am so hungry looking at I guess that means if you're hungry too we'll see you at SNOOZE on Larimer Street in Denver this Saturday to try out the "Honey Toasto" French toast dish created by the Belmar shop Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast and the chefs at SNOOZE.

Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast is a cool little Japanafile shop in Lakewood (445 S. Saulsbury Street at the Belmar Shopping Center) that imports Japanese clothes, paraphenalia, gadgets and collectibles. They approached the chefs at SNOOZE to come up with this lovely dish (pictured) of "a scrumptous cross between bread pudding and french toast, made with cinnamon challah bread, embedded with baked apple bits, topped with cinnamon whipped cream and drizzled with carmel sauce!" -Gimme Gimme

The event will give people the opportunity to sample this wonderful morsel as well as sample some other Asian snacks and get a listen to some cool Japanese pop and rock videos and music. There will be a cash bar, hopefully providing sugarless cocktails, and some limited edition t-shirts available that I'm sure will be sweetly fun. Kudos for coming up with a unique and yummy event guys!

SNOOZE- 2262 Larimer Street, Denver (corner of Park Avenue and Larimer)
Saturday, February 9th
6pm to 9pm
