Milk & Cookies
Milk & Cookies

Milk & Cookies would like to interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you some EXCITING NEWS!

For this month's show Milk & Cookies will be taking a trip across the Liffey to the Chocolate Factory! (www.chocolatefactory.ie) It's a new creative community developing in the old Williams & Woods building on Kings Inn Street. We've been there and there's some exciting stuff going on and we decided more people need to hear about it!

What were we doing there you ask, nonchalantly - but also like you really want to know? Well I dunno... something A-MAY-ZING I GUESS! I gotta be honest, this next part makes me a little tingly... Milk & Cookie Stories is proud to announce that AFTER DARK 3 - the third in our fist-pumpingly awesome series of variety shows - will be taking place this April at the CHOCOLATE FACTORY!

But FIRST! March. Death by Chocolate. Milk & Cookies Storytelling at the Chocolate Factory? Sounds like a world of Pure Imagination... :)

Milk and Cookie Stories is for anyone who has a story to tell, or wants to hear a tale told well, in a relaxed, friendly environment - a place with tea, cushions, cookies and friends. Our event is free, everyone is welcome and we welcome stories of all kinds.

This month, in celebration of everyone's favourite chocolate-based crucifixion/resurrection holiday (and our kindly hosts - obvs) Milk & Cookies is looking for stories about CHOCOLATE! Well not just chocolate. Any delicious dessert. And the lengths to which you have gone to attain one. Or the tragedy that could only be assuaged by some triple chocolate chip caramel cup vanilla ice cream with sprinkles, toffee sauce, crushed-up Malteasers, maybe a couple miniature marshmallows and some whipped cream. And a Flake. A Full Flake. None of that half-Flake nonsense you get at the seaside. I'm talking about you buy yourself a crumbly Cadbury's Flake from down at the Tesco, take it out - Carefully - and stick it in the ice cream Yourself. Then you pour what's left in the wrapper directly into your mouth. Like an appetizer. I've gone Way off topic.

But of course our theme is just a guideline and we welcome stories of all kinds. About chocolate. Sweet sweet chocolate. Seriously, why did you guys even let me write this?

As always, we'll be having our awesome Bake-Off - oh god I can't wait for this bake off - where we take your finest treats and have them battle for King of the Cookie. So don't forget to bring your champion confection! All Entries Are REQUIRED To Contain Chocolate*. That Is A Real Rule That I Definitely Did Not Just Make Up. The winner will receive a lovely prize as well as a round of applause from our eternally comely audience.

So I hope you're not being too good for Lent because we're the storytellers who Love to tempt :)

♫ If you want to view paradise,
simply look around and view it,
anything you want to do it,
want to change the world?
there's nothing, to it... ♫

And of course, Milk and Cookies ♥'s you!

*I'm totally kidding, you can make any kind of dessert you want. So long as it's CHOCOLATE. Kidding! :) But seriously.
