One of San Diego’s newest “cool” event spaces is dubbed the Underground Elephant. Located in downtown SD, it’s an office space by day and a venue setting by night and weekends. This really unique spot is filled with sunken spaces, living trees, wood and hand-forged iron. Not to mention on special occasions, like their opening party, a champagne fountain too!

The event creators were the team at Snake Oil Cocktail! With help from their two darling Swedish interns, the night was plenty of gorgeous, all natural cocktails! You can be sure we were absolutely flattered to be asked by them to showcase as a highlighted vendor!

Party attendants included special events industry professionals and friends of the industry, with a very strong focus on corporate event teams and destination management coordinators (DMC’s). People all looking for new & unique settings for their corporate client functions. We made some super fun new contacts! I mean seriously, isn’t that why we work all these extra nights?!

We had a blast getting to meet some new people, see old friends and WOW everyone with our showcase of mind-blowing desserts. What a dessert extravaganza we set up! With a few fun display additions from Archive Rentals, we set up a huge display of our cake plates and cake stands to show off some of our unique & delicious treats. Some of Tropical Cake Parfaits and of course one of our newest favorite cookies, aka “Dimples” (made by our Geek Cheek Michael), were shown in their two fantastic flavors:

  • Dark Chocolate with Raspberry Preserves “dimple” (thumbprint)
  • Vanilla-Almond with Apricot Preserves “dimple”

As we say, these cookies are “WEIRDLY VEGAN!!!” and simply ADDICTIVE!

Congratulations to our friends at Snake Oil Cocktail, owners Michael & Frankie as well as their fantastic team! Also to Jamie Whittaker, Co-Founder of Venuelust who was selected to manage this awesome Underground Elephant event space!!!
