Summertime, the season of camping treks and backyard barbecues both of which typically end with a sweet note: a fire-roasted s’more. Maybe you employ the meticulous rotation method ensuring an even, brown surface. Or maybe you just let that shit catch fire and call it good. Either way, celebrate this campfire staple on Wednesday, August 10.

Here are three places to honor the melty treat on National S’mores Day.

Hot Cakes

Both the Ballard and Capitol Hill molten cakeries will be roasting s’mores out on the sidewalk. You’re basically urban camping, cue the scout badge ceremony. S’mores will be $5 each and made with Hot Cakes’ organic marshmallows, handmade graham crackers, and cold-smoked chocolate. S’mores will also be available in cookie and bar form. August 10 also happens to fall on Hot Cakes Capitol Hill’s first birthday. Aww. Toast with $5 birthday punch and $1 off all molten cakes.

Slab Sandwiches and Pie

Here, snack on s’mores all week long. From Monday, August 8, through Friday, August 12, Slab will be serving the classic treat in different sandwich and pie iterations. Monday and Tuesday, try the s’mores krispies pie; it’s constructed with puffed rice and smoked marshmallow on a chocolate cookie crumb crust. Wednesday and Thursday, a pie dubbed Elvis consists of bacon, banana, marshmallow, and peanut butter mousse. And Friday, a s’mores ice cream sandwich made with chocolate chip cookies and toasted marshmallow ice cream.

Theo Chocolate

Two birds, one marshmallow: This Fremont chocolate factory will be celebrating s’mores day as well as fundraising for Food Lifeline on August 11 and 12. S’mores made with Theo chocolate will be grilled to order from noon to 5 each day. And $1 from each gooey treat will go towards fighting hunger in Western Washington.
