The new Crumbs Bake Shop in Clarendon (2839 Clarendon Boulevard) will be giving away free cupcakes tomorrow to celebrate its grand opening.

The store, which opened on Dec. 30, will give away 1,000 of its signature size (read: large) cupcakes to its first 1,000 customers. Also, the store is giving away free cups of coffee with any cupcake purchase.

Crumbs is open from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

    LOL!! They will be a massive crowd of sugar-shocked people WEAVING down Clarendon Boulevard!!
    Anyone going to camp out overnight, to be the first???

    • mehoo

      First you let a bunch of sugar-intoxicated riffraff roam the streets, next thing you know there are gangs doing drive-by shootings.

  • I hope the homeless shelter takes a field trip. Skip the showers.

      Ahhhhhhh!!! You beat me to it!!!!

    I worry about the fact that cumbs is a chain. I would prefer to stop fitting into my skinny jeans by getting cupcakes from a local who just moved back to the ‘hood from brooklyn and brings her band with hand made bongo drums to open mic night at iota.

  • Several people’s New Year’s Resolutions get kicked to the curb tomorrow morning. 1000 seems like a lot, but they will likely be gone by lunchtime.

    Fancy cupcakes are so 2008.

    We went there last week when they opened and were suprised by the lack of crowds AND lack of cupcakes. They only had about 5 of their 10+ flavors.

    Size matters doesn’t count here. Cupcakes were big but not near as good as what we already have here in DC.

  • mehoo

    You can make cupcakes at home, you know. If they’re not as big, you can eat two.

    What kind of bakery opens at 9am?

    The one thing Clarendon/Courthouse needs is someplace besides Starbucks for us early birds to get coffee and a roll.

    • SD

      Northside Social
      Java Shack
      Green Berry’s
      and now…Iota (opens 6:30)

      • mehoo

        1 chunky monkey scone at Northside beats 100 cupcakes.

        Cosi, Brooklyn Bagel….

          Cafe Assorti

          • KalashniKEV

            I love Cafe Assorti… I don’t know why it’s not more popular?

    • 7-11s…

  • ChrisW

    Don’t forget BakeShop on Fillmore! Their cupcakes are superior to any of the perceived “leaders” in DC (e.g., Gtown Cupcake) or NYC (e.g., Magnolia).

    Spend your cupcake $ at BakeShop. Support a local establishment.

    • Jessie

      I agree with ChrisW. BakeShop blows this place out of the water. But the absolute best cupcakes in the area are at Hello Cupcake in Dupont. They’re worth the metro trip.

      • Cupcake Guru

        Tried Crumbs and I agree. Although the cupcakes at Crumbs look good the cupcakes at Bakeshop taste SO much better. The cake and icing at Crumbs doesn’t even seem fresh.
