Last weekend, I decided to take an out-of-town visitor over to Georgetown Cupcake. What a horrible idea. I should have known it would be straight-up mania there on a Sunday afternoon and the 70+ line of sweaty, miserable folks waiting to smash cupcakes in their faces was just flat-out disgusting. So we did what cupcake-loving sensible people would do: Skip on over to Baked & Wired for equally delicious cupcakes with no line!

But we’re not the only ones bothered by the obnoxious line of reality-tv-loving nutballs. Think of Georgetown Cupcake’s neighbors! The poor souls have to deal with that mayhem every day. The Washington Post went over to G’Town to get their opinions on the cupcake craze and got some money stories. Example: One man had a young kid snap at him when he tried to get him off his front step so he could enter his own house. The boy told him he was “there first.” Yikes.

Our favorite: The neighbor who hung a Baked & Wired banner from their house. Genius!
