A Molly's manager in Lincoln Park didn't have any further details, except that it would be a full-fledged location. Though cupcakes seemingly had their heyday ten years ago, the new Molly's has generated excitement, as did news that Lincoln Park cupcake-comrades Sweet Mandy B's will provide baked goods for a stand inside the United Center.

A kitchen expansion for the Lincoln Park location is still in the works, as scaffolding remains next door at 2536 N. Clark St.
