I happened to pass by the future home of Hurts Donuts on Markham Street in the Block 2 lofts across from the Statehouse Convention Center and found staff busily prepping to open at 5 a.m. Wednesday. (I had the wrong day in the headline on the initial post.)

You can get a Hurts T-shirt today that will entitle you to go to the head of the line tomorrow, I was told. The shop, part of a Missouri chain, will be open 24 hours and deliver within five miles.

(For the journalism critics: There’s no news like news in the immediate neighborhood.)
