Record Store Day is Saturday, April 21, the tenth annual event. Record stores across the country will be celebrating with deals, performances, and food/beverages for customers.
A Chicago record store will be partnering with a local bakery for the day. Dave's Records in Lincoln Park will plan to have many people waiting in line to get in on Saturday. To incentivize customers to attend, the store will offer a full-size cupcake from Molly's Cupcakes to the first 50 people through the door.
For those who aren’t in the first 50, mini cupcakes and candy will also be available.
Molly’s Cupcakes is one of the most well-known cupcakeries in the U.S. Among its accomplishments are the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars season 1 finale winner, voted one of the ten best cupcake bakeries in the country by USA Today, and one of the best cupcakes in New York City by The Village Voice.
Molly’s Cupcakes has locations in Chicago, New York City, and Iowa.
