Today Golden Gate Bakery IS open.

Yesterday I posted about the strange sidewalk sale GG Bakery was having, selling egg tarts by the box from a darkened doorway. Today the lights were blazing, the door open and the line stretched out the door from inside. The (dare I say "inscrutable"?) bakery had, without notice or fanfare, shifted to apparent "open" mode, though I didn't notice if they were selling anything other than egg tarts.

I'm guessing they may also be open Christmas Day, Chinatown being Chinatown, but curious about what Monday will bring.

    How else will people get Chinese food, egg tarts in this case, on Christmas?

      Passed by today (25th) about 1:30 and the line was so long there were line defining ropes up. Didn't get close enough to see what was on display inside.

        I checked it out around the same time; there were 48 people in the line by my count. You can bet that nearly all of them were there for the egg tarts.
