Hope you all had a great Christmas! Matt surprised me with a Nintendo 3DS with my favorite game of all time- The Legend of Zelda- Ocarina of Time (in 3D!). I had no idea I needed this thing, but now I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT. So quick- to whatever needs to happen right now so I can get back to my game:
NEW YEAR’S EVE ORDERING! Now that Union is over I’m getting back to being somewhat on top of my work, and I actually got a NYE ordering tab up in a timely manner! I love the flavors we picked out, it’s one of the 4 yearly appearances of our much sought-after “Strawberry Champagne” cupcake, we’re doing cocktail party sized brownie platters, PLUS we’ve lowered our minimum for delivery to just one dozen for the holiday!
And if that wasn’t enough, not only will our cupcakes jazz up your New Year’s Eve party, but the carbohydrates will actually allow you to drink MORE. You’ll be able to ride that fine line between drunk enough to have a great time, and so drunk that your top comes off and you fight your buildings super! It’s an investment in your parties success, AND your clean criminal record! ORDER NOW!
FINAL DAYS AT DEKALB! We’re open today through Friday from noon til 8, Saturday from 11 til 4pm, and then we’re closed for construction projects for three months. Thanks to some delays with city permits, we had to rush to get DeKalb open last summer, and kinda had to do some things backwards just to get it going. Now that we’re entering the slow winter months, she’s getting shut down so our friends at Urban Space can make some exciting improvements, like……
………………Canopy over the food court!!!!! (aaaahhhhh!!!)
……………Beer Garden!!!!! (My oh my!!!!!!)
…………..Drainage system!!!! (More exciting than it sounds!)
I can’t wait until late March to open up our door again. In the interim, we’ll be popping up in Nolita just like we did last winter, trying to amp up our wholesale presence around NYC, showing some skin to potential investors and doing LOTS of R&D for the coming year. But for the next four days, DEKALB MARKET IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS, while most of our usual retail outlets are closed for vacation- meaning you should DEFINITELY come and see us!
Navi the Fairy: You would think in the almost 15 years since this Zelda was originally released (yeah, it’s been that long), someone would have thought that in a re-release they would have made her SHUT THE HELL UP.
Every five seconds: “Hey! Hey Link! Hey! Hey! Listen! Hey! Hey! Listen! Heeyyy-Oh! Em…errrr….oh, I know- what would Saria say if she knew we were saving Hyrule? That’s, um, pretty great, right? Yeah, I didn’t think I was actually going to get your attention, but now that I did let’s talk! Tell me about your day….Link? Link? Hey! Hey! Hey! Listen! Hey! Hey! Hey! Listen! Hey!”
January’s Schedule: I’m doing it today, so if you have a request, get over to Facebook ASAP and let me know! Feel free to throw us any ideas you have for new flavors, too- you never know what we’ll run with!
