Signage recently went up informing the ‘Burg that a Dunkin’ Donuts is coming to the corner of North 7th Street and Bedford Avenue, replacing the old Northside Pharmacy. The reaction was instantaneous: “ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?” someone scrawled on the banner yesterday. The Twitterverse had its say, too, and most Tweeters were, uh, noticeably frustrated. Here now are the top ten reactions to the Dunkin’.
Breaking: @DunkinDonuts Williamsburg to offer farm-to-table Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich paired with slow-drip Kyoto Coolatta. Yum!
