DD = Dunkin' Donuts
, a coffee & donut shop that is VERY popular up here in New England.

Yup. According to www.dunkindonuts.com
there are 5 just within my zip code. Considering my town spans several zip codes, that isn't even a full count! The standing joke is that if there isn't a DD in your town, your town isn't in New England. They are everwhere, and wildly popular. It is actually getting a bit out of control.. Not that I'll stop going there anytime soon or anything! ... DD Rocks!
It's fun to hear references to DD in pop culture. Just the other day I was watching 'Mysic River' on my GF's on-demand cable. It is a movie about a girl that gets murdered in a Boston community. The two lead detectives come out of a fancy coffee store muttering something like "..it's the same thing you get at Dunkin' Donuts, just at twice the price!"
Then in 'West Wing' Josh and Santos are in a car in rural NH *****ing about not being able to find a Starbucks.. I hollered at the screen "Just go too Dunkin' man!"
Alright, enough out of this crazy New Englander..
