It’s a good news/bad news day. Just going to get to it.
The bad news is that we’re cancelling some of our dates for our Park Here pop-up, meaning there’s no place to pick up individual Chicken n’Waffles/Buffalo/etc cupcakes during most of the playoff games, and you need to order them for delivery. Reason? We just have a TON of back-end stuff to do. Not stuff that would make an interesting Tumblr. The kind of stuff that makes me go dark on Twitter, get headaches, and stare at a computer screen until I’m compelled to cover myself in warpaint and sit in the middle of my living room floor butt naked while eating a tub of ice cream with my bare hands. You’ve all been there (right?).
The good news? I’m hoping that there will be a ton of it once all this paperwork gets done. Namely, ALL MY PAPERWORK WILL BE DONE. But primarily, I have done almost no work whatsover on the forthcoming Robicelli’s Cookbook since right before the Union Square Holiday Market started, and that thing ain’t going to write itself (I checked- it hasn’t done a damn thing on it’s own in my absence. Lousy slacker book proposal).
Other good news? Valentine’s ordering is now open!
For only fifty dollars, you can send your loved one 12 very special Robicelli’s cupcakes or brownies, tied up with a beautiful ribbon with a personalized handwritten card attached, and hand delivered right to their home or office. We’ll even have the delivery guy wear a tie so he’s extra good looking (though not as good looking as you).
I know it seems like New Years was just yesterday & V-Day is more than a month away, and you’re already sort of freaking out that Duane Reade etc is already stocking their shelves with Valentine’s candy and shoving the entire thing down your throats. Totally get it. However, I had to put it up now because it’s one of our two busiest days of the year, mostly because for one day we drop our delivery minimum to only one dozen, and we can only make a limited amount of deliveries as we don’t yet have a cloning device or one of those gizmos from Clockstoppers that would allow us to move superquick through time and make more stops in the Robicellimobile. Last year we opened ordering on 2/1 and got to capacity really quickly, so we wanted to give everyone a bit more time. We care like that.
Next bit of good news- realized that Lunar New Year comes a tad early this year, so we’ve changed the cupcake schedule a bit for this month- Green Tea Mandarin AND Black Sesame will both be available on January 23rd! Keung hei fat choi NYC!
