W Times Square Is Throwing A Twinkie Party

We're getting a pretty big kick out of all the Hostess-related headlines we're seeing right now on Google: "If Twinkie dies, we killed it" (CNN), "The Twinkie Manifesto" (NYTimes), "What the Twinkie's Demise Tells Us" (Washington Post), and our favorite, Gawker's guide on how to make your own twinkies.

Things are still pretty up in the air for the 82-year-old baked goods company, though America breathed a collective sigh of relief yesterday afternoon, when it was announced that Hostess has agreed to sit down with the BCTGM union and talk through their problems.

But that hasn't stopped folks from buying up every last box of Twinkies, Ho Hos and Ding Dongs available in the stores. And it certainly hasn't stopped W Times Square from seizing on the opportunity to put together a special Hostess-themed cocktail pairings menu to honor the occasion.

The menu, which is only available for four days—starting today!—will feature pairings like the TBR (a twinkie with a Pabst Blue Ribbon), the Dinger (Chocolate Manhattan with two Ding Dongs) and the Sno Ho Ho (Chocolat Raspberi Martini with Sno-Balls).

The menu will be available in the hotel's Living Room Bar.

Personally, we've got our eye on the Sno Ho Ho. Something about those pink coconut-covered marshmallow cakes has always done it for us. What about you?
