Red Velvet Cupcakery Grand Opening (With Free Cupcakes!) Thursday, January 15


You heard it here first! Red Velvet Cupcakery will be having its grand opening on Thursday, January 15! And to celebrate, they’ll be handing out free cupcakes to the first 500 customers. Of course, since I have to work I seriously doubt I’ll be getting some free cupcakes, but I fully intend to stop by after work and see what they’re all about. Anyone with me?

For those of you who have a less-sweet sweet tooth, TangySweet, which will share the space with Red Velvet Cupcakery, will be having its grand opening this Thursday, January 8. They’ll be giving away free frozen yogurt throughout the day. I think this sounds like an excellent little attraction for you recession-strapped folks that work in Penn Quarter. I just had TangySweet for the first time in their original Dupont location, and I loved it (I suggest getting strawberries for a topping). The joint Red Velvet Cupcakery/TangySweet is located at 675 E St NW, one block from the Verizon Center.

I’m interested to see how Red Velvet Cupcakery shapes up. Will Pastry Chef David Guas deliver, given that Georgetown Cupcake seems to have cracked the perfect cupcake code? Red Velvet’s press release says that many of the cupcakes will feature flavors based on Guas’ Louisiana and Cuban heritage, although the menu seems more  classic American flavors to me.

Maybe this means there will be a Mardi Gras cupcake in Red Velvet’s future? I could get behind that!

    I’m so jealous of all you DC people. Here in the recession ridden northwest there are NO cupcake shops. You taunt me!

    That being said, those Red Velvet cupcakes look like the ones they sell in Albertson’s bakery with the Crisco icing. You remember those cupcakes all the parents brought to school for birthdays…
