The day not only included margarita-swigging but also the cupid shuffle. So, in other words, it was perfect.

Pyramid Vodka has won yet another award. They recently took home the platinum in the vodka category at the 2015 SIP Awards

This is the third award that Pyramid has taken home in the less-than-a-year they've been in operation. Impressive. 

Pyramid scored silver at both the Denver International Spirits Competition and the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, both in the vodka category. 

Phillip Ashley Chocolates won the gold for "Most Unique for Best White Chocolate" at the International Chocolate Salon by TasteTV.

In other chocolate-covered news, Phillip Ashley just launched its 2015 Summer Collection inspired by cake and ice cream. Flavors include Red Velvet and carrot cakes and such ice creams as rum butter pecan and salted caramel gelato.

Clearly, the best way to eat these chocolates is on top of cake a la mode. 

• Finally, a shout out to Celtic Crossing, which marked its 10th year anniversary weekend. They spruced up the place (new barstools, a re-done bar, and new furniture, etc.) for the occasion and went non-smoking.
