Want a donut? Not so fast there, Skippy.

Krispy Kreme closed

My lovely wife and I had lunch in Alexandria today and afterward had a hankering for a doughnut. Of course, I thought, let’s go to Krispy Kreme. For those of you who never leave DC, there are hot doughnuts now on Rt. 1 south in Alexandria.

When we got there this sign and a locked door were all that greeted me. You think it got bad when you couldn’t get your coffee? This is dire, my friends. Big Daddy needs his doughnuts. I’m not screwing around anymore.

Is there an area Krispy Kreme that is open in this Snomageddopocalypse?

  1. Hi, Tom. I used to live about half a mile from that Krispy Kreme store in Raleigh. Great neighborhood. I have read about the race before. Sounds like a good challenge. Four miles AND a box of doughnuts in an hour? I get sick just thinking about it. Looks like fun though, and a great cause.
