FREE Gingerbread Extravaganza (No Eating, Only Looking)

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Christmas is over, but it’s not to late to stare at baked goods shaped like houses. Le Parker Meridien’ is a fancy hotel, but you don’t need money to check out their second annual Gingerbread Extravaganza. This year, they had several local bakeries build sugar and cookie creations inspired by movies that were made in New York.

So if you’ve ever wanted to see a King Kong gingerbread, you have until Sunday to go to the Parker Meridien Lobby. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can pay a dollar to vote for your favorites. But more importantly, that dollar will get donated to City Harvest and help feed hungry New Yorkers.

New York Movie Inspired Gingerbread Extravaganza
Le Parker Meridien

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
