CupcakeGate 2K10: The Finale [Impromptu FIPS Cupcake Social TONIGHT]

As we all know by now, this weekend marked both the beginning and the end of Cupcake Gate 2K10.

The Chip Shop's very public failure to produce deep fried cupcake deliciousness, left a mark on our community that will not soon be forgotten.

However, today is the dawn of a new day, thanks to Allison from Robicelli's Cupcakes.

We must all now begin to pick up the shattered pieces of our cupcakeless weekends and start anew. And thanks to Allison's delivery of 24 insanely delicious, freshly baked Elvis cupcakes (see above), we want to make that shit happen for you.

BREAKING: Chip Shop Has No Fried Robicelli's Cupcakes [Or Maybe They Do...Who the Fuck Knows? Hint: not them]

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Now, apparently this shit is on (according to @theessentialman). Whatevs, Chip Shop...I'm done with you.

UPDATE: Robicelli's tweeted me with the following update: "Called us last night and said they had a problem with the oil, so they had to cap the special to last night only. Boourns." I'm no fry daddy, but this makes no sense to me. Everything on the Chip Shop's menu is fried! So if they can't fry the cupcakes, I guess they can't fry anything else on the menu? Also what sort of "problems" could one even have with oil?? Chip Shop FAIL.

Ok, so after reading about, blogging about, and tweeting my fucking face off about the deep fried Robicelli cupcakes that were supposed to be at the Chip Shop this weekend, I was pretty bummed to walk my ass alllll the way over there in the freezing cold (forgot my gloves, went anyway), only to find that no one there had any fucking clue what I was talking about.

Park Slope Snowball Fight??

Did I just see some more snowflakes??

Ever since that last blizzard, I've been pissed that I missed this amazing snowball fight in Times Square.

Then I started thinking: God damn it, we need a good old snowball fight in Park Slope!

It could be a ceremonial breaking of the ice between the nabe haves and have nots: kid-toting vs kid-free,
capitalists vs legal aid lawyers/social workers, newbies vs old guard, boys vs. girls, gym-toned vs fat-assed, employed vs laid off...

I'll even try to talk Erica into setting up a FIPS table with hot cocoa and mulled cider (okay, I don't actually know how to mull cider but how hard canit be??).

If it starts up again and anything sticks tonight, let's all meet tomorrow in long meadow!

Look, people, I'm not going to waste a whole lot of space here, because if this shit doesn't interest you solely based on the title of this post, we are clearly not to be meant to be friends.

As Cupcakes Take the Cake has reported, this weekend, the Chip Shop will be featuring DEEP FRIED Robicelli's cupcakes.

Cool or Not Cool: Asking Friends to Child proof Their Apts?

As we've documented, there's nothing I enjoy more than fighting in the comments with self-important BREEDERS who claim that it's RIDICULOUS and OFFENSIVE for me to assume that there is ANY self-importance amongst their group AT ALL (even as they are brilliantly illustrating this self-importance in the very comments that they are leaving).

But even a smartass BALLER like myself was pretty shocked to come across the following information on our fave blog STFU Parents: there are actually BREEDERS out there who expect people to go through all the necessary steps of "child proofing" their home, before they will come over and grace it with the presence of their bebes.
