Blue Bird Bake Shop in Audubon Park has taken the idea of happy hour and turned it on its frosted head. Instead of just booze, why not an adult-beverage-inspired cupcake?
From 5 to 7 p.m. (or until they sell out) on Friday, BBBS will feature $2 cupcakes brushed with booze. This week: Kahlua & Cream is the featured flavor. It's vanilla cake with Kahlua buttercream frosting, topped with a dark-chocolate-covered espresso bean.
As Stephen King's main character in The Shining
, Jack Torrance, says at his own hallucinatory happy hour: "You set 'em up, and [we'll] knock 'em back."

Instead of heading out after work tomorrow to down a martini or four with your co-workers, you could probably sway the decision about where to spend your post-workweek calories elsewhere.
