This morning as I was walking down Federal Street, I noticed something different. A new storefront. Holy cupcake!
Boston will soon have its own Crumbs Bake Shop! I whipped out my phone and took a few pictures. Then the door opened. Cue dramatic music. Dunt dunt daaaah!
Out walked a young man. I asked him if he knew when the bakery would be opening. He did not. But in a voice from the 1940's, he said, "By the looks of things sweetheart, it will be soon. Very, very soon."
Could Crumbs be open in time for Valentine's Day? Wouldn't that be lovely?
I sent an email inquiring about the opening day, but didn't hear back. So I called the store and was told that they didn't know when the Boston store would be opening. Hmmmm. The mystery continues.
Time will tell. I walk by this place every day, so I will be on this story like frosting on cake!
It's funny how things happen. If my life were a movie or novel, there was some foreshadow. Last summer, I mentioned Crumbs briefly in a post that I wrote about the food issue of Brandeis Magazine.
That's all the bakery news that I have for you now. If I'm lucky, my next report will have me wiping frosting from fingers!
*Updated 3/7/12* According to the website, the Boston store will be open next Monday, March 12th. Joy and happiness! And there is a coupon to buy one cupcake and get one free. Click here for a new post with the update.
