This is Boston and we laugh in the face of that kind of alleged adversity and then we go out and get our iced coffees, dammit! And make 'em large!

Lori Magno captured the moment aboard an elevator at 33 Arch St. this lunchtime.

We could find out one day: Dunkin' Donuts announced today a deal with a franchisee to open 1,400 Dunkin' Donuts in China over the next 20 years. Dunk's currently has just 16 outlets in the Middle Kingdom.

In addition to coffee, Coolattas and bagels, Chinese Dunkin' Donuts offer mochi-ring donuts, which, the company informs us, are made with mochi, a "glutinous rice that tastes far more delicious than it sounds," in flavors that include green tea, mango and banana.
