I’m actually going to talk about stuff that pertains to the business today!
I’m super serious, Shut Up Cat! And I’ve missed you. It’s been a while.
Seriously, this cat needs to learn to watch his friggin mouth otherwise I’m going to start blogging with manatees or otters or something. I’ve already got two cats at home that look at me like I’m an idiot on a daily basis, I don’t need a third.
Now that I’ve effectively threatened a picture of a cat, we can move onto talking about the business. Which I know is the real reason we now have over 16,000 direct subscribers- FACTS and SOLID CONTENT. Not crap like this.
#1: We’ve been asked to join Food Network’s NYC Food & Wine Festival this year! Friday, October 12th, we’ll be presenting various cupcakes, whoopie pies, brownies and more at SWEET, hosted by Sandra Lee. Tickets to this event sell out quickly every year, so get yours as soon as you possibly can!
#2: Like food events, but think SWEET is just too, well, sweet? Maybe you want to spend your hard earned cash on something that can only be described as the single most awesome food event that has ever existed?!?!
For the third straight year, we are super stoked to be a part of MEATOPIA! We will more than likely once again be in the VIP section, providing the all important service of giving people a sweets break to cleanse their palate, thereby allowing them to eat MORE MEAT.
Seriously, we do lots of great events- but this one always, hands down, is my favorite. Rodney Scott is going to be there, and that man could seriously change your life with the awesome power of barbecue. I still have sexy dreams about the pig he slow roasted last year. Very, very sexy dreams. Fortunately, my husband is totally cool with my choosing slow roasted meats over him, which is why our marriage works.
Tickets go on sale next week, and cost quite a bit, but are so unbelievably worth it. Make some calls, get some friends together, and make plans to see us there. As a bonus, it would be a really spectacular Father’s Day gift if you don’t have one yet. Or….
#3: You can come to our shop at DeKalb Market on Sunday, where we’ll have a limited amount of both our Bourbon Bacon brownies AND our Sixpoint Brownstone Ale brownies. We’re baking them Saturday and will have them in the shop the moment they’re ready, so keep your eye on Twitter and Facebook to find out when they’ve arrived. You can also email me at allison at robicellis dot com if you want to preorder some for pick-up. AND we’ve also got the Sixpoint cupcake in stock this weekend as well as the Car Bombs, which are without question two of our top-five manliest cupcakes. The others are the Elvis, the Chicken n’Waffles, and the Bea Arthur. Dudes freaking LOVE Bea Arthur.
I mean, who wouldn’t?
#4: Now sad news: Bergdorf Goodman is doing some renovations, meaning that Bar 5F is closing, meaning today is the last day you’ll be able to get our cupcakes there for a while. We’ll hopefully be returning to another part of the store soon and of course will let you all know when it happens. In the meantime, head on up there and say your final goodbyes to Bar 5F! *sniff* We’ll miss you!
#5: It’s now time for me to write the rotation schedule for July, so get your requests into me either on Twitter or Facebook by the end of today! I always do my best to make all of you happy. Like with these four you requested last month!
