Crumbs Bakeshop, the New York City-based cupcake chain, will open its new Clarendon store on Thursday, the company Tweeted this morning.

The Clarendon Crumbs is located at 2839 Clarendon Boulevard. It is the chain’s first Arlington location, and second D.C. area location.

The company’s store openings are often accompanied by big product giveaways.

    Biggest news of the year!

    Maybe they can hire some people from the View at Clarendon – and lower their prices!

    WIll this cupcake fad ever end?!?!?! 2-5$ for a tiny little cake! My grandmother is turning over in her grave at the lost opportunity for fortunes that she missed! She was the true Queen of the Cupcake, and only cost me a hug and a kiss as a child!

      My grandmother didn’t bake, but called her cat “Cupcake”, which we thought was cute since it was a male cat. That is, it was cute until she ate Cupcake with some milk. RIP grandma and Cupcake.

      I don’t know the price of Crumbs’ cupcakes, but at least the cupcakes are huge!

      • Lou

        Big enough to feed a family from The Views? That would be pretty awesome.

        • Jake55

          Depends, do they take “EBT” cards?

  • Black Flag

    Cupcakes zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • FrenchyB

      My sentiments exactly. Wake me up when a gourmet beef jerky boutique is coming.

      • Lardbut

        Just go to Eden Center, the sandwich place has gourmet beef jerkey (exellent!) in 4 different flavors.

    “WIll this cupcake fad ever end?!”

    It did… Like, a year ago. Good luck to them though!

  • Clarendip

    Trying to find the New Year’s events post. ArlNow can you bump it please?

  • Clarendip

    Never mind. It wasn’t loading at first. Maybe an update?

  • Darwin

    Perfect! I’ll wear my kickball team shirt there and think about how wild and counter-culture I am to be an adult who plays kickball and eats cupcakes!

    • V Dizzle

      For me it was to meet girls that drink beer, and because it made me feel athletic. I’m a couple of years behind on the cupcakes.. Beer cupcakes, now that’s an idea!

      • Fo’Shizzle

        To go with the gourmet cupcake pizza.

  • Partly Cloudly

    How are the cupcakes?

  • Cupcake lover

    I was not impressed. The cake was completely dry and icing underwhelming. I will continue visiting the Bakeshop for goodies.
