Kids get their own White House Correspondents’ event

Why should the adults have all the fun at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner? Now, the kids are getting in on the action.

Sprinkles Cupcakes, the bakery chain and Los Angeles import, is hosting its first-ever “Correspondents’ Tot Brunch.” The kid-centric, free event, which we hear is standing-room only, will be held the morning after Saturday’s dinner at Sprinkles’ Georgetown location.

Unlike the dinner — where sarcastic jokes and wisecracks reign supreme — the atmosphere at the brunch will be nothing but sugary sweet. The underage set will learn the ins and outs of cupcake frosting, and get limited edition Cupcake Brunch T-shirts designed exclusively for the gathering.

A spokeswoman for Sprinkles tells ITK the cupcake-maker “wanted to make kids part of what has become an iconic weekend in Washington.”

Parents looking to bring their tots to the brunch should email shanna@eincomm.com. But better get in on the brunch action soon, as word is, there’s very little space left.

Sprinkles isn’t the only place trying something new this year for the annual dinner.

MommaLu, a new, D.C.-based business that delivers same-day care packages if you’re under the weather, is trying to keep Washingtonians healthy ahead of the dinner.

The company whips up two kinds of $30 packages, including a Sick Sack (stocked with chicken soup, nasal spray, honey, cough drops, and other goodies) and a Puke Pack, which includes items such as mouthwash, Saltine crackers and antacid tablets.
