Jenny Levison toyed with our emotions today, sending out this e-mail.
“Dear Loyal customers,
I am so sad to announce that this will be our last day in business.
We will be open tonight and offer free champagne. We hope you will come and join us today.
Before we could hustle down there for a final cup of chicken noodle, Levison, whose staff of singing soup slingers at Souper Jenny often greet guests with both ladle and lyric, eased our fears.
“April Fools’ people!” came a second e-mail.
The champagne, we’re happy to say, is no joke.
