Let me just say that the sangria was seriously strong, ok? Like, taking a shot of Jack and doing push ups while watching the training scene in Rocky IV kind of strong. Oh, who am I kidding? The sangria was perfectly fine and the cupcakes were on the verge of to die for. Wait, did I say cupcakes? Cupcakes and sangria? Please, don’t take my man card away! I was only at Sweet Revenge, a West Village cupcake, artisan sandwich, savory cake and wine/beer bar with a few women from my writing class. I mean, a few dudes I trade motorcycle accident stories with.
Sweet Revenge is a hip place and I really respect the owner, Marlo Scott, who I only later learned was the woman working behind the bar and serving tables. (Click here for her story) I’d never experienced anything like this place before — cupcakes paired with wines or beers. You can order separately, but I was so curious as to how one pairs a peanut butter and chocolate ganashe cupcake with booze that I had to try it. You should too. So good.
Sweet Revenge: 62 Carmine St. between Bedford and 7th Ave.
