Flavors: Week of January 21st
Wow, football, huh! That was some weekend, wasn’t it? What, with all those touchdowns and interceptions and Tom Brady crying.
Ok, we didn’t watch any football this weekend. We were working and missed everything, and following along on Twitter just isn’t the same. We did get home in time to watch the part of the Seahawks game where that guy was screaming a lot, so we’re not completely out of touch.
Then we watched lots and lots of videos of Tom Brady crying, because that’s actually more enjoyable than watching football.
With the teams set, we now have two weeks to count down to one of the greatest events of the entire year. It’s more than just a game. It’s more than just commercials. Its…..
MEAT ON TOP OF CUPCAKES DAY!!!!
That’s right, folks — in the grand tradition of such national hallmarks as National Lobster Thermidor Day (1/24) and National Gazpacho Aficionado Month (May), we here at Robicelli’s have declared the Super Bowl to be our very own food holiday. And since we made it up, and we kinda invented this whole “chicken on cupcakes” thing five long years ago, we’re gong to extend it the entire damn weekend.
Between Friday January 31st and Super Bowl Sunday, you can drop by our shop and pick up one of our famous Chicken n’Waffles cupcake, or an even rarer item, the elusive Buffalo Chicken cupcake, which only comes out once a year for this very holiday. Of course, there will be limited amounts since making these is a multiple day process, and this is an item that is notorious for selling out every single time we’ve ever made it, so preordering is very strongly recommended.
But let’s say you’re part of the well-established cult of chicken n’waffles fanatics, but have absolutely no intention of hauling ass down to Bay Ridge. Or you’re having a big party and intend to start drinking the second you leave work on Friday, and there’s no way you’ll be able to drive down to pick anything up. You silly people forgot that WE DELIVER.
Need us to bring dessert to your house Sunday morning so you can concentrate on making thousands of different appetizers that all contain crescent rolls? Done.
Need a few buffalo chicken cupcakes at your party for curiosities sake, but then want some sensible desserts like bourbon bacon brownies and a lovely banana cream pie? Done.
Want a box for your office the Friday before the game because you and your co-workers have been stalking this flavor for a while, and staging a “conference” where two interns slapfight each other in a stairwell while you eat cupcakes is just as good as watching the game together on Sunday? DONE AND DONE.
Here’s what you need to do to make this magic happen: fill out this form. That’s it. We’ll contact you about paying us later this week, and you can sit back knowing you might not even need to leave the house to get in on this. Of course, if you want less than a dozen, you will have to leave the house, but you should probably get a little bit of exercise if you’re going to eat a cupcake with fried chicken on it.
What can you do while you’re waiting for Chicken n’Waffles to come back? You can come to our shop and eat other stuff, and listen to Barry Manilow with us. We’ve been on a Fanilow kick, lately- I can’t explain it.
But then again, those eyes explain everything.
