Indianapolis is getting a place called "Doughnuts & Dragons," and we're already jealous

Doughnuts. Beer. Dragons .

Are you still with us? Probably so, because who on this steadily decaying planet isn’t into some combination of those three things? Blake Dollive of Indianapolis appears to have cracked the code, and is opening a chill spot called Doughnuts & Dragons which will sell locally crafted beer and specialized doughnuts while offering some board and role-playing card games for people to enjoy.

And what did it take for the word to spread like wildfire? A “coming soon” sign and the excited tweet of a person who clearly knows a cool thing when they see it. Nearly 3000 retweets and 16,000-plus likes solidify that yes, this is a winning business plan:

“I didn’t even post anything about the business,” Dollive told the IndyStar.
“Yesterday is the first time I posted on Twitter. A friend from high school texted me and told me people were talking about it...and showed me the tweet.” Dollive would like to open Doughnuts & Dragons sometime before Gen Con, the largest tabletop gaming convention in North America. Should things fall into place in time, the internet is already providing the best word of mouth anyone could ask for.

So if you’d like to maintain the momentum of opening smart businesses for the easily entertained adult, can we suggest Wine & Wizards, for the drinker who likes to debate Harry Potter theory? Just putting that out there.

You’ll find no shortage of season Hollywood types equipped with their torches and pitchforks, all too prepared to blame Netflix for the woes of the film industry. It’s unfair, really: Streaming has provided a viable platform for films that would likely have a harder time getting greenlit by major studios. The public’s declining interest in heading to their local...

Since his Rupaul’s Drag Race debut in 2012, Latrice Royale has become almost synonymous with the show, supplying the Emmy-winning series with enough quintessential moments throughout his three-season tenure to justify his own spinoff. Attempting to deny his impact on pop culture is a fool’s errand, and Royale knows as much: When asked to name a show that is most...

Though some disagree , drunk people don’t make great sponsors. It’s rare, after all, to see someone chugging a Bud onscreen.

Beer and chocolate chip cookie dough are two amazing concoctions that are immensely satisfying in small doses, but if taken in excess will cause copious vomiting. So of course they should be combined into one super-beverage of deliciousness and potential disgorgement, and it only stands to reason that two of our nation’s finest purveyors of consumables should be joining...
