I just don't get that place. I hate their cupcakes: Dry and tasteless.
This isn't news. I've seen mice running around there since they opened.
From what I've heard a majority of all NYC food establishments (high end on down) are filthy hell holes behind the scenes.
R1, that sounds like a line from a John Waters movie.
I don't like the idea of a Yankee bakery co-opting the name "magnolia" for their business name.
It ain't fittin'.
They should have called it something local "Colonial Knickerbocker Bakery" or some shit like that.
I had classes down at Hunter College's science building on 25th and First years ago. One night, an oil slick appeared. It was gushing out from under some broken concrete in a little side "yard." As I was trying to figure out how oil was pouring out of the ground in Manhattan, it turned into two, then three oil slicks. Then one of the oil slicks hit the street and I could make out that it wasn't liquid. It was ... rats. Endless rats. I'd never seen so many rats and hope I never see so many again.
You would not believe how many rats there have to be living under the streets of Manhattan. It has to be in the trillions. I swore there were at least a thousand rats pouring out of that one hole in the ground. And all different sizes. I thought maybe some were mice but they weren't, they were "toddler" rats.
Think of how many you've seen in the subway, in Central Park. I've seen rats gamboling on Fifth Ave in the dead if night, coming out of the park.
Trillions. Got to be.
Magnolia cupcakes are hideous. Sprinkles is so much better.
Thank you for that hideous image R15.
I remember seeing a movie at Cinema Village and there were mice running all over the place. Ironically, the movie was "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (if only)
There were these three butch (looking) guys up front that kept shrieking. I can't remember if they left or hung in there.
Why would you stand in line for a cupcake that you could get at the Kroger for 59¢?
You can thank Sex and the City for Magnolia being a hit. Like every other tasteless trend Manhattan has had to endure the last ten years.
Sandra Bernhard was right. The show changed the city and not in a good way.
I'm the Samantha of my clique.
Really, r21? I'm the Carrie! I make stupid puns and no one knows how I afford my spectacular wardrobe that cannot hide my homeliness.

You could never sell New York City to me. I'm sure it's a fine city and those of you who live there must love it, but there's nothing appealing about it to me.
Too many people crammed into such a tiny island. Bedbugs and mice. Bleh.
