Waiting for Cupcakes

The Magnolia Bakery is literally a cupcake’s throw from my
apartment, and I am constantly amazed at how popular the place is. The line around the bakery on some sunny days can
stretch off as far as the eye can see…since most of us can’t see around a corner.

Much of the traffic at
the bakery comes from Sex and the
City tours
that drop off tourists by the busload. Curious what I’m talking about here? Well, then take a look at this video over at youtube, and you’ll see what I
mean. And let me add just one thing: I’ve had cupcakes from this place. They aren’t that good. Not worth
waiting over an hour. We’re talking about cupcakes, people!

One word: absurd.
