The thinkers at Sprinkles are coming up with some pretty clever marketing. A few weeks ago, Sprinkles had Dallas abuzz about its cupcake ATM, from elected officials to TV personalities:

Methodist Health System announced today the opening of the Methodist Family Health Center – Preston Hollow, located at 4235 W. Northwest Hwy., west of Midway Road.
It must be good to be Jason Villalba right now. Not only was he named one of the best freshman legislators in Dallas by a political observer on Tuesday, but he also had this nugget of good news to share with followers today:
Tucked into Steve and Jane Sanders’ cozy Preston Hollow abode is a 2,000-square foot chamber that’s an ode to his fondest childhood memory: riding trains from camp. He began collecting trains after he closed his hobby shop on Central Expressway in the 1970s. Read more about this indoor marvel and the latest trends in interior design in Homes and Design, which premieres in this week’s newspaper.
Alice Hurmis, 81, went to be with the Lord on March 9, 2013, in Dallas. Born November 5, 1931, to George and Sona Ameer in Yonkers, N.Y., she was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Bob Ameer and Sonny Ameer; and her sister, Sadie Sargis.
She is survived by her husband of 59 years, David Hurmis; her son, Darrell, and wife Kim, her daughter, Darlene Hurmis Morley, and husband Rob; and her four granddaughters who were her pride and joy and will miss their Nana dearly: Holly Hurmis Langford and husband Chace, Jordan Morley, Callie Hurmis, and Paige Morley.
Alice was the most loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother one could ask for. She was a longtime member of John Calvin Presbyterian Church and a 38-year breast cancer survivor who looked forward every year to participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas.
A memorial service honoring Alice will be celebrated Saturday, March 16, 2013, at 11 a.m. at John Calvin Presbyterian Church, 4151 Royal Lane, Dallas. Memorials may be made in her name to John Calvin Presbyterian Church.
Remember those four years of Fashion’s Night Out in Dallas? Last year alone, it included parties at Elements on Lovers Lane, Jan Strimple’s huge show at Highland Park Village, and tons of fanfare at NorthPark Center (not to mention other soirees at Bittano’s and Tootsies).
According to today’s announcement from the organization’s headquarters in New York, the annual event will “go on hiatus” in the United States but will continue “in select international cities.”

Things aren’t looking good for Preston Hollow’s most popular resident.
Earlier this week, George W. Bush’s beloved Scottish Terrier, Barney, passed away. Now, there’s news reports that hackers have wormed their way into three years of Dubya’s personal emails and photos, literally exposing an intimate portrait of what’s ruminating inside 43’s head lately.
The culprit has only identified himself as “Guccifer,” which gives me the impression he doesn’t live too far the former president or The Galleria. Read more here.
