Dunkin Donuts has arrived (Las Vegas).[moved from Southwest board]

im from boston - home of the DD- now living in LV!
altho im shocked by this being the FIRST DD in vegas - i cant say im thrilled!
im not a fan - the donuts are good - but i rarely if ever eat a donut
the coffee on the other hand is GROSS - especially if youre a fan of coffee - REAL coffee!
what sells DD is the AMAZING amount of cream&sugar they put in it for you! not to mention the ever so eco friendly styrofoam cups!
but drink it black and its nothing more than dirty water! ugh!

Old Enough to Fight. Old Enough to ... Drink?

RI Im with you - how do you tell a returning US BET thanks for your sacrafice - here's a soda!
I think it is total hypocrisy - and i personally never understood the reasoning for 21 - any suggestions as to why 21 became the lega age anyone?

Las Vegas Bakeries

hey there!
funny i should find this post today - i live in LV and moved here recently after living in boston and the Poconos my whole life
my brothers bday ws last week and i wnted to find a cake to bring to the restaurant (TBones) - they dont have "cakes" there - but they did offer a nice $25 plate of berries and cream...OMG!!!!
Anyway - i must have driven around the city - mainly Summerlin area (NW) all day and the best thing i could find that resembled a bakery was WHole Foods and Cheescake Factory!!!
Your friend is right - there are NO bakeries here - except if you ask some of the locals they will tell you Starbucks or Vons...
my mouth is watering already!
