Somehow it seems wrong to celebrate an anniversary and give your guests a gift. But from the moment doors open at 10 a.m. today, Hello Cupcake will pass out its namesake treats for free as part of its second anniversary celebration.
I suspect people will be lining up outside the door on Dupont Circle well before opening time, which raises an interesting question: If people are willing to sweat it out to buy a $3 cupcake and stand around for an hour or so to purchase a $15 lobster roll, then how long will they wait for a free treat?
I guess many of you will find out today. You should know that Hello Cupcake says it will hand out the freebies until “supplies run out.” Consider yourself warned.
