The West Village Cupcake Brigade

Five women and one man calling themselves the Cupcake Brigade donned matching pink dresses on Sunday to perform a mocking musical tribute to the perplexingly popular Magnolia Bakery in the West Village, where Sarah Jessica Sandinistas stand in long lines every day to buy the exact! same! cupcakes! from Sex And The City. They sang God Bless Magnolia (to the tune of God Bless America), further changing the lyrics to bleat about how fabulous Bleecker Street is now that all the designer shops have crowded out all those pesky unique-to-the-Village mom and pop shops. This must be an ongoing project, here’s a performance video from May.
