Free cupcakes

Sadly-the following event passed. It was today, and i failed you devoted readers. I wrote this post 2 weeks ago, and meant to publish it last week. Between work, and the holiday season right here, right now, it slipped mine. As did the whole blog in general. Sorry for the lack of updates, I will try to be better this week. I am going to post this cupcake write up anyway. I know you aren't getting free cupcakes anymore, but now you can see how they tried, and remember Lyndell's is awesome! You should go to Ball Square and buy their baked good all the time.

Lyndell's Bakery in Ball Square is celebrating 120 years of business. To show their appreciation, they will give a free cupcake to anyone that visits the bakery. Before heading over here is some history.

Established in 1887, just 15 years after Somerville was incorporated as a city and before the Boston Red Sox were playing baseball, Lyndell’s has served generations of families with freshly made breads, pastries, cakes, and cookies.
Today, Lyndell’s is New England’s oldest “scratch” retail bakery, Greater Boston’s favorite place for half-moons, and one of Somerville’s greatest institutions.
Their amazing success and longevity is attributed to the bakery’s commitment to quality and freshness saidBill Galatis, the fourth and current owner of the sweetspot.
He estimates that more than 10 million people were served over Lyndell's history. People have purchased 18 million cupcakes, 15 million danish pastries, 10 millions loaves of bread, and 2 million birthday cakes.
Giving away a cupcake is our way of paying tribute and saying thanks to the previous owners, our past and present workers, and the thousands of customers that visit us each and every year, Galatis said.
