Cupcake Bouncer Conundrum

The line for cupcakes at Georgetown Cupcake extends outside, and people wait in the chilly rain for their chance to enjoy the sweet goodness.

Every time Georgetown Cupcake makes the news, the detractors shake their fists: The cupcakes aren't worth the wait, they're overrated, Baked & Wired/Hello Cupcake/(enter favorite bakery here) is better, bake your own stinkin' cupcakes.

When we mentioned last week that a bouncer stands outside the shop now, more feedback came in. The Washington Post even received a response from the cupcake sisters themselves, who own and run the shop. They told the Post that even though everyone calls the position a bouncer, it's really more of a greeter -- someone to hand out menus, guides the line and directs traffic.

So instead of a 300-pound body builder to boot you out of line for bad behavior, think smiling college-age cupcake fan ready to expedite your Georgetown Cupcake experience -- as much as he or she can when there are 100 people in line.
