Macking on Cupcakes

So I was walking around Greenwich Village with the wife on Saturday night when we stumbled across a little park filled with middle-aged women sitting around eating cupcakes. While odd, the weather was beautiful this weekend so I just figured it was somebody's birthday or something. Then, kitty-corner to the park was a LONG line outside of a storefront. It reminded me of the "secret" hot bars in Los Angeles which frequently have non-descript facades. Turns out it was Magnolias!

We decided to go stand in the long line since, well, we really didn't have anything else to do. 15 minutes later, we were inside picking out our cupcakes and other sweets. I was skeptical at first that it was all just hype (the crowd control guy at the front door told us there is a line out the door every hour of every day), but I gotta say, that was a darn good cupcake. The frosting was sweet but not too sweet. The cupcake itself had this crunchy crust at the top but was moist on the inside. All for $1.50 each.

Just to complete the experience, we decided to go up to 68th and Broadway to watch the Chronicles of Narnia but it turns out that movie isn't playing there anymore.
