(updated) Mexicali mushroom launch thwarted by Kendall Sprinkler System

By Lucia February 19, 2020

(Update – as of Feb 20, 9am – our Kendall Square restaurant is back open!! Thanks to everyone for their patience!)

There’s a lot of construction going on in the Google building. It was 12:15pm when there was a power surge and the fire alarm system sprung into action. Which meant sprinklers. In our kitchen. At the worst possible time.

There were 15 Mexicali sandwiches on the board when the water started to fall. Poor Rob got soaked. And everyone else had to start mopping.

We will be closed at our Kendall Square location (5 Cambridge Center) until further notice in case the equipment needs to be replaced (definitely by tomorrow at lunchtime). We’ll keep you updated here and on social media. Fab has already refunded all of the orders that were pending during this time. If your lunchtime was interrupted and you did not get a refund, please reach out and we’ll make it right.

This is not what I was hoping for when I made the Mexicali mushroom sticker a surfer.
