Wake Up for Sweet Dreams 2010

Shopping and sharing consume our holidays so much that we rarely get to stop and taste the sweets. Thankfully, the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek has a strict no dessert left behind policy. More than 50 of them, and that's not sugarcoating it.

From December 9 to 25 on Thursdays to Saturdays, nosh on desserts including two chocolate fountains, nearly a dozen creations made on-site, and 30 different candies and pasties on display. The Fourth Annual Sweet Dreams at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek welcomes glutton-loving guests including the Real Housewives of New Jersey's Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice (Thu, December 16); the original TV food chef, Mr. Food Art Ginsburg (Dec 24); and Simply Delicioso's Ingrid Hoffmann (Dec 10)

Hoffmann, a Miami resident, will kick off the weekend festivities on Friday, December 10, with a meet and greet starting at 7:30.

"It's great to participate in an event where the proceeds go to charities," Hoffmann said. "In past years, there have been scheduling conflicts. I'm glad I get to go this year."

Partial proceeds benefit the Ronald MacDonald House Charity, Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Foundation, and Disabled American Veterans.

The $35 admission not only gets you all-you-can-eat dessert decadence and mooching with celebrities but also a live-action flambé station and an open bar.
