When we arrived at Jestine’s, we were confused by the line of 30 people snaking out the door. Was the restaurant not yet open for dinner? How were we supposed to get in? I realized these were all people waiting to eat, since there was no indoor waiting area. I was a woman on a mission, so I walked on in (those 30 people loved that) and looked for Leigh, who happened to be the first person I approached. She promised to go to the mysterious “next door,” said the cupcakes were $2 each and she thought there were six available. I told her I’d take what they had but I didn’t need more than six. She invited me to sit down and, despite how slammed the restaurant was, asked if I wanted something to drink. I asked if Tenley could come in and she said she could (those 30 people loved that just as much as when I had brazenly walked in!). Lo and behold, Leigh provided us with a box of four beautiful red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and technicolor sprinkles! We slunk out past the hungry 30 and worked our way back to our car. It’s a miracle we didn’t drop our treasure sneaking peeks and trying to get the box closed again!
