Week 64: Manly Taste & Ant Cakes

Thursday, May 4, 2017
Location: Birchbox (SoHo)
Event: BirchboxMan 5-Year Birthday Bash
Food: Grilled cheese

BirchboxMan, which is apparently a thing, was celebrating its fifth year of existence. Melt Shop supplied grilled cheese sandwiches which was a big step up from the tiny bowl of candy that was served at the last Birchbox thing I went to. Now we all get to keep waiting patiently for the subscription business model to die off.

Location: Banana Republic (Midtown)
Event: Banana Republic Summer Collection
Food: Cupcakes

For some reason ant sized cupcakes have become of staple of the free food scene. Maybe they think I won't eat as much if the food is miniature but that is simply not true. Banana Republic served up a large display of these offensive cupcakes so I ate four and didn't even pretend to shop.
