As we pointed out on Wednesday, the 26-year-old dessert-cake shop is closing its retail location at 170 Second Ave. near East 11th Street today.
The sign on their window says Black Hound will be open until 10 tonight. (EVG reader Andy, who took this photo, says there wasn't much left for sale. So maybe you call ahead before making a special trip…)
Per the sign:
"The East Village has been out retail home since 1988, and we've seen out neighborhood evolve from eclectic to trendy."
Also, local customers can "still enjoy Black Hound treats" via a delivery service from their Greenpoint bakery. You can also pick up orders by appointment there.
From their Facebook page Wednesday:
We’ll continue connecting with you through Facebook, emails, firstname.lastname@example.org, 800.344.4417, and www.blackhoundny.com. Thanks to our loyal customers and friends for your support!
And back to the sign, which states, "Looking ahead, we want to resume our retail presence in NYC and will seek investors to help us on this journey."
UPDATED 5:54 p.m.
Per our Facebook friends, Black Hound sold out of everything and closed around 5.
