The Dunkin' at 16-18 Hayestown Road in Danbury has been temporarily closed while the building has been remodeled into a new Next Generation Dunkin'. It's opening up tomorrow morning with a full slate of events, festivities, and giveaways. One giveaway that is sure to grab your attention Danbury residents - free coffee for a year.

Here's the lowdown on the events - Dunkin' at 16-18 Hayestown Road in Danbury will celebrate their grand re-opening tomorrow (1-27-23) from 9AM to 11AM. Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito will bring along his golden scissors for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10AM. Dunkin' will also be handing out VIP cards good for $2 small Cold Brew or Nitro Cold Brews, while supplies last. They also promise Dunkin' merchandise, and an appearance by Dunkin's mascot, Cuppy.

The big giveaway tomorrow is only open to Danbury residents in the Danbury area, and it's a good one - Dunkin' is giving the first one hundred Danbury residents free coffee for a year, and that starts at 9AM. If I didn't have to work those hours tomorrow, you might see me sleeping in the Henry Abbott Tech parking lot overnight.

I wonder how many commuters defected to the nearby Starbucks during the shutdown? I do love both brands, but have always had a soft spot for Dunkin'. At my last Doctor appointment, they found that I was 8% French Cruller.

We are so much more than that. Danbury has a lot of intriguing true stories and many of them originated in the same place, Main Street. Main Street Danbury holds truths so unbelievable, you kind of have to. How can one 2-mile stretch of road, hold so many stories? I just does.
