    I had some issues with the sterling DD and called their corp office, they called me back and we discussed this store.

    Last I heard that they were to open in about 3-4 months......that was about 2 weeks ago.

    I am so sick of being asked by my wife to drive to the sterling or leesburg one on a daily basis!!! I can't wait for these guys to open!!!!

    I don't even drink coffee!!!!

    3-4 months is not gonna happen, in my opinion... 4-6 months, maybe.

    Remember, they got rid of the Porta-Potty, so they need another 3-4 weeks to get their new one delivered... Of course, that can't happen until the fence guys install an opening/gate in the fence, which won't happen for another 6 weeks. Then the inspectors show up, use the Porta-Potty and realize that the foundation was poured upside-down, and everything needs to start over. ;)

    It would only be fair if she was to return the favor by taking you daily to Good Guys after work. :D

    Of course you go there for the chili. I hope you didn't think I meant something else...

    Aobid-
    I've also gotten it several times "from the horse's mouth" that they'll be open in 3-4 months.......I've been told that every 4-6 months for the past two plus years.

    http://www.nbc4.com/foodnews/13980277/detail.html

    Extremely condensed:
    "The doughnut chain is announcing that its menu will be "zero grams trans fat" by mid-October in all of its U.S. restaurants."

    Bottom line, they're 'deep fried'. You can deep fry mud and it'll taste good :D

    Well, when KFC switched to no-trans fat, I could tell a taste difference. But then again, I'm sure by the time our DD opens, they will have fat-free donuts!

    i drove by last night and saw the port-a-potty isn't there anymore. not sure if it's been gone...but did they remove it, or did the neighborhood rascals decide BEER wasn't enough?

    Well the best donuts in my opinion are at the Fractured Prune..there is a new franchise that was awarded to someone in Loudoun County (according to their website)...can't wait to find out where it is & when it'll open.
