Local Business Love - Two Openings in One Week

It starts with the cupcakes, which is pretty much a great way to start anything. Cupcakes Royale opens its Cap Hill location at Pike and 11th tomorrow morning at 6am (so early, gah!). They'll be giving away a free babycake to everyone who knows the secret password, but only while supplies last. I've got bets on the babycakes only holding out till ten - we Hillites can be motivated when it comes to our sugar. (Pic courtesy of the delectable Cupcakes Royale blog)

Envy will be making its move to the Hill on Friday, hopefully. Envy is that plant store in the CD that outgrew (hee hee) its space and found it had a powerful need for more foot traffic. I have a feeling it'll do just fine at 15th and Madison. If you say you heard about them on CHS on opening day, you can get five bucks off any plant/pot combination that suits your fancy. If you also mention you heard about them on Life on the Hill, you will have my eternal gratitude.

Now, I know these moves and openings have been in the works for a while, but they still make me feel better about how our neighborhood is coping with the present economic situation. Take that, recession!
