At Wicked Jack’s Tavern, when know the safe arrival of our fresh cakes to your home or business is due to the strong backs and delicate hands of every parcel delivery man and woman. So, in honor of National Thank a Mailman Day, we encourage all of our customers to leave a small package in your mailbox, perhaps a mini 4-ounce bunt cake, marked, “To our wonderful postal carrier. No special delivery needed.”
