  • We all get gotten by Mardi Gras at one point or another. Anyone who bought anything from Dong Phuong Bakery by credit card from December 2016 and March 18, 2017 (which basically covers all of king cake season), was not charged. They will be though. The Dong Phuong Bakery posted a note on its website to inform customers about the mix-up. According to a report by Ann Maloney, a rep from the bakery says it was because of a “faulty switchbox, an Internet connection box” that had gone bad, preventing the credit card machine from working properly. Patrons should expect charges from the bakery on their March bills. [NOLA.COM]
