The WHOOPS! bake shop doesn't have a place to call home yet, but its "pop-up bakery" has been setting up shop in restaurants, bars, and galleries all over town. On Friday, Oct. 8, owner McKee Floyd will be doling out her whoopie pies at Mid City Caffe (1626 14th St. N.W.) from 6 to 8 p.m. (Check out our profile of her from last month.)
Floyd left a job on Capitol Hill to start the operation, and hopes to move into a permanent place by spring of 2011. We're just happy to see someone baking something other than cupcakes these days. Are whoopie pies the new cupcakes?
