  1. I like all those places except I hate, hate, hated the Crack Cookie at Milk Bar. That was one of the worst desserts I’ve ever had. That place has a GREAT PR PERSON because the desserts are awful.

  2. @Mic – Really? That’s a neat trick since Milk Bar doesn’t have a crack cookie! They have a crack pie. Maybe that’s what you were thinking of. And one of the worst desserts you’ve ever had–that sounds horrible!
