At first glance, the name Johnny Cupcakes may seem like a bakery; a place where you get all the sweetest stuff that makes your friends envious. While it may not be a patisserie, that doesn't change the fact that what founder Johnny Earle does is, indeed, sweet.
In 2001, Earle dropped out of college and had no money to his name. In order to pull himself out of the hole, he began selling T-shirts out of his car with his now signature cupcake skull-and-crossbones logo and the rest is history. Earle's refusal to sell out to big name department stores and chains meant that his quirky clothes would become limited editions and his adoring fans would feel that more in the loop regarding the must have duds.
In order to repay his fans for helping launch him into apparel fame, Earle is stopping by the 323East Gallery in Royal Oak on Saturday, May 1 for his "Back to Basics Suitcase Tour." Bringing it back to his grassroots beginnings, Earle will meet and greet with attendees and show off six shirts that will be available exclusively for his tour. And since Royal Oak is one of only thirty stops on Earle's tour, it'll be a sure bet that the line will be long.
In addition to Earle and his coveted clothing line, Just Baked bakery (locations in Livonia, Ann Arbor, Twelve Oaks and Royal Oak) will be serving complimentary cupcakes for everyone attending.
Don't miss what could be a once in a lifetime chance to attend this FREE event and meet one of today's leading young entrepreneurs, grab some awesome gear and munch on some amazing cupcakes! Again, the event is Saturday, May 1 at 8 p.m.
323East is located at 323 East Fourth Street in Royal Oak Michigan. For more information please call 248-246-9544 or visit http://www.323east.com.
