On Saturday, a crowd gathered in front of Alchemist on Lincoln Road that was so big, you would think the store was dropping another set of Yeezys. Instead, soccer god Cristiano Ronaldo decided to stop by for a shopping spree, thus shutting the place DOWN.
Apparently the crowd had become so large they had to lock the doors to anyone who wasn't a Real Madrid forward. Luckily, Alchemist has another handy location on the 5th floor of the 1111 Garage, so they were able to smuggle him out the backdoor "Goodfella's style."
