This past Saturday, Brightest Young Things held their first annual DC Donut Fest. Held at Penn Social, the sold out event featured all you can eat doughnuts (while they lasted) from all the major doughnut purveyors in the area. The nascent ubiquity of doughnut madness was on clear display by virtue of the fact that several of the most prominent vendors were shops that aren't even open yet. From Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken and GBD to bigger names like Farmers, Fishers, Bakers and Poste, attendees had their pick from concoctions like duck fat doughnuts and Nutella frosted doughnut holes.
