IT’S VALENTINE’S WEEK!
This is your last minute reminder — you have only four days to get something memorable for the one you love, and I’m betting half of you haven’t figured out a damn thing. I know this because I reminded Matt that we were baking Valentine’s cupcakes today, and he turns to me and says “Oh yeah, that’s this week. Just a heads up- I got nothin’”.
That’s what nine years of true love gets you. “Nothin’”.
Then again, Matt and I tend to not make a big deal out of holidays because we always have to work on them, instead opting to make a big fuss on the days everyone else doesn’t care that much about, like Columbus Day or the Feast of St Polycarp, Patron Saint against Dysentery.
You never stop being haunted by this.
YOU, however, will probably not be able to get away with this, whether you’ve been together 9 days or 19 years, so you need to get moving. Which is why you should place your Valentine’s order with us RIGHT NOW, because Thursday morning at 10am, advance ordering for delivery will be closed and you’ll be forced to either come out to our shop in Bay Ridge to pick some up yourself, or settle for some crap from Duane Reade that will actually just make your significant other angry at you. (Seriously- don’t ever ever EVER do that)
Here’s what ordering from Robicelli’s this Valentine’s Day will get you:
We’re offering a bigger selection than every before: cupcake assortments, cookie assortments, brownies, whoopies, layer cakes, pies……what says I love you better than something delicious? Except maybe a copy of our book, but then after that, I’m betting it’s baked goods.
We will send your box straight to your loved one provided they’re in Brooklyn or Manhattan. Not only that, there’s an excellent chance that it will be hand delivered by the one and only Matt Robicelli, which is going to make your package extra sexy. Just remember- you can look, but don’t touch. I share him with the rest of the world because I love you guys, but he belongs to me.
You tell me what to write, I’ll do it. Even if it’s dirty. Especially if it’s dirty.
Drawing on the Box!
Please remember to have low expectations here, but yes, I’ll draw whatever you want!
Now fill this out by Thursday at 10am, and you can rest easy knowing you’re the most perfect and romantic person in New York City and every Valentine your loved one has had before you is going to look like total crap in comparison:
But what if you don’t want delivery, or just want to pick up a few for gifts for your office, or some for yourself because, after all, these are some very special flavors that almost never come out and you want them all for yourself.
