Bumble-ing Around With Adult Candy This Weekend

It’s Santacon in New York City! Whether you don Santa’s bright red suit to brave the Christmas crowds or just dig down deep into your pockets for another sneaky sip of “holiday cheer,” the tried and true tradition brings out both the best and the worst, of those who participate.

But instead of hitting up just any ol’ dive bar or filling your flask for your “secret” coat pocket, the owners of Smith & Sinclair’s Adult Candy Shop pop-up have a new and unique way to get your cheer on during the holidays. The London-based company, who have made their mark in the world of sweets with their adult-only Candy Cocktails, has developed the first-ever Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies with a mission to make “Adult More Fun.”

This weekend, the pop-up is hosting two festive events with Bumble, a revolutionary social app that connects users to new people, fostering friendships and even relationships. From noon to 4 pm, you can pop in and meet a potential new best friend over Smith & Sinclair’s world-famous alcohol-infused treats at their Bumble BFF event! Your reservation includes a free Cha Cha Matcha Tea, an afternoon of fun with board games provided by SunnyLife, a Pimped Out Prosseco as well as some of their Cocktail or Mocktail Gummies. You might even find a new BFF to take a new profile picture with in their candy-colored photobooth! You can find out more and RSVP for either Saturday or Sunday here.

Still searching for that winter cuff? Then look no further than the Adult Candy Shop’s Make Dating More Fun event this weekend, hosted by Bumble. There’s no swiping right here, as Smith & Sinclair set up the perfect introduction to meeting someone under the mistletoe. While schmoozing and getting to know one another, you’ll be treated to a free Pimped Out Prosecco, a flight of five of their sensory Twisted Cocktails, samples of their delicious craft gummies and access to their Naughty or Nice Grotto, complete with a glow in the dark candy confessional where you can show just which list of Santa’s you’re on this year. Make sure you secure your spot for this holiday soiree here.

The adult pop-up experience is not designed to get anyone drunk, but rather focus on having fun in a festive environment, allowing for some a much-needed reprieve from the calamitous atmosphere that New York City can become during the holiday season. As their candy does contain actual alcohol, the events are for adults 21 and over and I.D. is required upon entry.

So put on your Santa hats and make the weekend extra memorable with a visit to the Adult Candy Shop, located on 6 Greenwich Avenue in the West Village. Cheers!
