    Eating a Crumbs Cupcake on the Street

The Grand Opening of Crumbs Bake Shop was on Friday and to say it was well attended was certainly an understatement. The crowds filled the lobby and circled around the block in the hopes of scoring a free cupcake. Second Ward Alderman Robert Fioretti was on hand to cut the ribbon. I’m guessing he’s a fan because he walked away with enough cupcakes to feed his staff for a week.

I also walked away with a cupcake before they ran out of freebies. According to staff, the raspberry swirl is one of their best, and after taking a bite I find it hard to disagree.

Things have probably died down a bit at Crumbs, so make your way over there for an afternoon snack. They’re located at 303 W Madison.
