Here's what organizer Julie H. wrote on Yelp:

Cupcakes.

The word inspires love or loathing in many. This event is for the cupcake lovers.

Spend any time in the DMV and you've probably already come across a cupcake or two. Many of us already have cupcake lists. But can you REALLY be sure you've given THE cupcakeries and bakeries in the area a fair shake? Is there a chance you might have missed a cupcake or two?

The time has come to find out. Join us for a day (yes, a whole day!) of cupcakes.

Don't worry, we're not asking you to eat 15-30 cupcakes. We'll aim to split our cakes into halves, thirds, or fourths to maximize our dollars and stomach capacities (and hopefully reduce the diabetic coma). At each stop we'll attempt to sample a vanilla or chocolate cupcake AND a specialty cupcake that the shop may be known for (or featuring in September).

We'll have a 'scorecard' to help you keep track and, with enough interest, maybe water bottles and custom t-shirts to show our cupcake insanity.
