A doughnut shop in Warren serves beer now and we are shook

Posted By on Wed, Aug 30, 2017 at 1:29 PM

Just when you thought that a doughnut shop opening next door to a marijuana dispensary was God's way of showing us that everything is going to be OK, all of a sudden we hear that a doughnut shop in Warren serves beer alongside their cinnamon roll doughnuts it's pretty hilarious.
WWJ reporter Charlie Langton tweeted out a photo from Detroit Donut in Warren, located at 11 Mile Rd and Hoover. AS you can see from the photo, the shop is "now selling beer."

WWJ also reports that Detroit Donuts also sells roll-your-own tobacco and gasoline, which just confirms that a place like this could only belong in the town of Warren.

What is even better is WWJ interviewing people from Warren on their thoughts on the doughnut shop pouring beers now. The reactions are priceless.

“Yeah,” insisted Lexie of Warren. “Because I know people who wake up and that’s the first thing they think of: Beer.”

Mitra Encheva, also of Warren said that although it’s maybe not for her, she sees the possibilities.

“I don’t think so; it’s not the beer time…that’s the weirdest thing ever,” she told WWJ’s Charlie Langton. “But teachers usually need it before the beginning of the school year.”

At least they're being honest, right?
