Get out your dimes, it’s midnight!
Blog Guy, if my calendar is correct, you’ve got a major event coming up?
Yes, the celebrated Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, here in Washington DC, is ready to launch our big new season the day after Labor Day.
You’ll have to ask the museum’s marketing director, Lamar. It’s something about wanting to avoid having crowds. It’s the same reason we’re only open from midnight to 6 a.m., and why the $20 admission must be paid in dimes. “Anything you can do to keep the tourists away,” Lamar says.
But anyway, our intrepid night owl visitors, their pockets sagging with coins, will find some nice new exhibits this year, such as our glitzy tributes to actor George Clooney and Vice President Joe Biden.
Oh, that’s not an exhibit. That’s just our security camera footage of Neil trying to get free doughnuts after closing time….
