The Best Link Today:

I know, I know–I'm a hippo.  Not that kind of hippo.  More like a big ass hypocrite; who says one thing and does another.  Here I am, just moments after dissing cupcakes, writing about them once again:

Blame LAist, who blogged today about a super unique St. Patty's day treat: Yummy's Guinness Cupcakes.  How amazing does that sound?  How could I not share?

I think I'm on a major rich beer-as-dessert-course kick, having recently chugged a coffee bean-brewed stout at newly opening resto BoHo, lovingly sampled beer soaked sheep cheese at Joan's On Third and fondly reminisced about Guinness ice cream floats we tasted at Pix Patisserie during a snowy winter road trip last year to Portland, OR.  Sigh. Dreamy.

On a totally separate note, LAist also blogged today about Obama's impending trip to Cali and how to catch a glimpse of history's coolest Pres.

I say, try bringing him a Guinness cupcake.

I know that would win me over.
