At This Point It's Just False Advertising
I'm a sucker for Christopher Elbow chocolates, particularly the fleur de sel caramels. In fact I love them more than Recchiuti's caramels (the shock! the horror!). CE's caramel is gooey liquid covered with chocolate that breaks when you bite it, whereas Recchiuti's is chewy and soft. I prefer the goo. I also swoon for CE's passionfruit caramels, despite the fact that they are enrobed in white chocolate, a substance I normally equate with the devil's work.
So it is only fitting that Jon and I were jumping up and down like a couple of rabbits on crack when we saw that CE was opening a store mere blocks from our home. This was spring, and the sign read "Coming Late Fall."
So we watched. And we waited. And spring came and went. As did summer. As did fall.
Now I can provide a bit of leeway but at this point you need to be takin' down your "late fall" sign. I mean that shit just looks stupid now that we are approaching February. It's just fucking ridiculous at this point.
I have hope as there appears to be actual construction going on in the store now. Still, you need to be changing the sign, peeps.

P.S. Major huge thank you to the Slow Club for kicking some major ass for my birthday and Jon's birthday this past weekend.
