Blue Hill Tavern to host Baltimore’s first Cupcake Camp

Mark your calendars for Sept. 24 as the day to eat free cupcakes.

No buying, no selling. Just cupcakes. And eating them. Yes! It’s called Cupcake Camp. And it’s definitely my kind of camp — no need for dousing yourself in Off!, or racing to eat melting popsicles that drip down to your elbows, or fearing being lynched by fellow campers. This is just cupcakes.

Blue Hill Tavern on S. Conkling Street is holding the first Cupcake Camp, from noon to 3 p.m. that day. The whole point is just to be an “ad-hoc born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment.” Folks will bring cupcakes to share and folks will eat cupcakes that have been shared. That’s it.

Baltimore’s not the first city doing this Cupcake Camp thing. Here’s a list of other cities that have joined in the festivities and will be hosting camps in the upcoming weeks and months.

And if it sounds like BarCamp, well, it sort of is based on the concept. And if you don’t know what that’s about, here’s a helpful link to explain the techie-based workshop idea.
