My roommate and I decided on a whim to venture to Georgetown Cupcake tonight. It’s only about a 20 minute walk from our dorm (GWU is essentially adjacent to the Georgetown area).
We were shocked to find that even though they closed at 9p.m. the line was still around the block at 8! We decided since we walked over despite our exhaustion from our lack of sleep last night that we would wait in line, and it proved to be completely worth it. Turns out, the line only seems so long because they don’t have a ton of in-store space, so that’s just naturally where the line wraps. They’re clearly used to their DC Cupcake fame because they move customers through quickly, and we ended up only having to wait in line for about 15-ish minutes.
And then we finally got inside:
The cupcakes looked so delicious, and they have a ton of flavors!
A dozen cupcakes were a bit out of our price range ($31 and some change), and we decided we didn’t need a dozen cupcakes tempting us in our fridge, so we got a half dozen for $15. I chose red velvet (the best creamed-cheese frosting I’ve ever tried) chocolate birthday and chocolate coconut!
Also, since I’ve been in D.C., I’ve been fortunate to have my evenings free, and have been able to do some serious reading. I’ve finished two books in my first week:
This is a (true) memoir about two women who moved to NYC in the mid-40s and were the first females to work on the sales floor at Tiffany. It was a great, quick and easy read, I definitely recommend!
I really fell in love with this book, perhaps it was the fashion. Protagonist, Phoebe Swift recently quit her job and decides to open a vintage store in London. Her best friend recently died, and she blames herself. The story unfolds in an interesting and heart-wrenching manner, definitely pick it up!
The House is in session for the rest of the week, so I’m sure I’ll be busy! (6 days until my birthday, though!) We made reservations at Founding Farmers for dinner next week and I can’t wait to try it!
