Flavors: June 19-22nd
As expected, last weeks chicken n’waffles weekend was insane.
I mean, we know it’s popular. And yes, we told you it was going to sell out. We prepared for it. We pushed preordering. We made some to sell in the pastry case on Saturday, and made a bunch of backstock to sell on Sunday. We didn’t intend to have to tap into it at all, and if we had to, it would be a few pieces, tops.
We sold out of Saturday’s crop of chicken n’waffles cupcakes in three hours. We tried not to go back into the backstock, but by Sunday there were only 10 left.
Again, this is why we heavily suggest preordering when we do it. ]
The lousy part is was that some of the people who came down to get chicken n’waffles had traveled. And I don’t mean “took the subway from Park Slope” traveled — I mean there were people here from Connecticut, New Jersey, Long Island. And it totally sucks for us to say “sorry you drove all this way, but come back in October when we’re doing them again!”. That’s not cool.
The only obvious solution is to do them again, and soon. The 4th of July is coming up, and if that’s not a holiday that screams “fried chicken”, I don’t know what is!
Fourth of July is on a Thursday this year, so we’re going to have some special hours: we will be open on Wednesday July 3rd from 10-5pm. Thursday July 4th from 10-3, and then normal hours will continue for the rest of that weekend. Plus we’ll still be offering delivery, so you’ll have lots of chances to get your chicken n’waffles, plus some of our all-American apple pie and other delicious things.
However, that is two entire weeks away, and we’ve got some awesome stuff happening this very weekend right here in Bay Ridge. We’ve been doing a ton of events in Manhattan and around the tri-state area, yet it seems we haven’t done a single thing in our own backyard. That changes come Sunday!
The Ridge Chorale has been around since the 1960s, and is made up of professional actors, retired actors, acting teachers, acting enthusiasts — pretty much, people who know what the hell they’re doing. So put your “Waiting for Guffman” ideas aside, and come down to Owl’s Head Park this Sunday for live music, incredible food, and the best view in Brooklyn. It’s family friendly, so bring the kids!
