City Bakery - closed, or closed but reopening?

techbod | Dec 29, 200606:28 AM     5

I've tried twice in the last four days to drop by City Bakery for one of those insanely good apple butter stuffed ginger cookies (or, a pretzel croissant or a melted choc. cookie). Once at 830AM and again at 4PM. I've been surprised both times to find the lights out, chairs stacked and doors bolted. Never mind the fact that I have just admitted to being surprised by the same situation twice (it's a sleep deprivation side effect, I'm pretty sure), but what's up with the City Bakery?

Is this the long-heralded "terrible waste of space/so outlandishly expensive" issue finally coming home to roost, or are they just taking the holiday week off? There was no sign in the door (neither north nor south) indicating the former.

I hope they stay open. Obvious gripes aside, CB does offer killer pastries and treats unmatched by the other neighborhood options (Mrs. Beasleys or Starbucks).
