Sit down wherever you are and read the following information. Folks, what you are about to hear is literally going to change your life. Let me introduce you to Ultra. Ultra is a new delivery service in the DMV area, but there’s an awesome twist. Ultra guarantees booze delivery within 30-60 minutes, with a flat fee of $5 and no maximum order. If you life in DC you are in luck (don’t worry Virginia, Ultra is looking to expand) because right now the service is available in most parts of Northwest DC, Capitol Hill and H Street NE.

Though alcohol delivery in general is not a new phenomenon in the District because several liquor stores have offered an in-house delivery service for years. However, Ultra functions as a technology provider and marketing tool for local alcohol purveyors, with a website where orders can be placed. The plus side to Ultra is they will be launching a mobile application soon, too!

Keep in mind that, DC delivery is available starting Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The service is not available on Sundays.

If you happen to be out of the DC area, check out Ultra’s delivery coverage.

crodoli & crodo

Over the weekend, the quest for cro-somethings was in full-force. I didn’t live another minute without knowing how these trendy little goodies are getting so much hype. Last week, I posted a post about the new goodies, cronut, croknot and the doissant. If you don’t want to read the whole post, the recap is below.

It seems like hybrid goodies are on the rise. The one that is still all the rage among my friends is the cronut, but I am about to blow your mind with a croknot and then a doissant.

First you have a croissant. A croissant is a buttery, flaky, viennoiserie pastry named for its well-known crescent shape. Then, you have a donut or doughnut, a type of fried dough confectionery or “dessert” food, which is likely consumed at breakfast. Now that we’ve established what a croissant and donut are, put them together and you get a cronut. The cronut is a beautiful thing.

This weekend in Albany, I needed to try their version of the cro-something. Albany offers up the crodoli and crodo. The craze — like some zombie apocalypse virus, no doubt taking advantage of air travel and our interconnected world — has since, as you can see, (thankfully) spread to other large cities.

So… where to finding something like that here in the Capital Region? The Crip Cannoli. This bakery will thrill your taste buds. These amazing pastries will blow you away! Their crodoli creations are simply amazing and must be eaten straight out of the fryer, which is exactly what we did! From my understanding, the Crisp Cannoli just celebrated their 1 year anniversary. They have proven great creativity and I am sure will continue to keep it interesting! Honestly, from their crodo to their savory cannoli, you will find something that tickles your fancy. Next time you are in the Capital Region of New York, be sure to visit this little bakery.
