I hope your employer allows long, flexible lunches, because from 12 to 3 pm and 5 to 7 pm on Friday, the NHL — in conjunction with NBC Sports — will be giving away free cupcakes at Union Station. And not just ordinary cupcakes. Per the, um, fantastic, press release from NBC, these are limited edition “Stanley Cup(cakes),” which include logos of all 16 teams competing in the playoffs.
It’s a nice, tasty treat to enjoy the day after the Caps stomped out the Rangers in game one 3-1.
Crumbs Bake Shop today announces its partnership with NBC Sports Group and the NHL to create a one-of-kind campaign to promote the Stanley Cup playoffs on NBC Sports.
