Break It Off in Style

Down the garbage chute goes the leftover wedding cake that sat — crumbling — in your freezer. It might be hard to express how freedom tastes, but a July 4 hot dog has nothing on a divorce cake (hell, divorce cake is much sweeter). And while finalized divorce papers are fine as a record, nothing symbolizes the dissolution of a marriage better than a divorce party. Taste the sweetness of it yourself at Lisa’s Divorce Party from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. this Thursday at Mamajuana Café. There’s no cover, and Mamajuana will offer complimentary food to soak up the booze at its cash bar. Elite Cake Creations will put several divorce cakes on display, offering samples of each kind. Lisa — the divorcée of honor — chose a sugar sculpture, but other favorites include a bride dragging the broom off to the dump, and a cemetery complete with a little coffin on top to bury the wedding ring. Hold on, maybe that brittle old wedding cake isn’t entirely useless: Feed it to the bitter bastards who believe divorces should only be mourned.

RSVP to Stenovia L. Curry at the email address listed above.
