Voodoo Doughnut will go 24/7 starting January 15

"At last. 24-hour Voodoo Doughnut availability," reads the note from Tres Shannon and Kenneth "Cat Daddy" Pogson, the duo behind Voodoo Doughnut, which opened last month, on the thirteenth of December, to crushing crowds that braved frigid temps to get first crack at doughnut mania. Since then, the cult doughnut den has maintained sporadic hours, but on Wednesday, January 15, Voodoo Doughnut will, for the first time, open its doors for 24 hours straight.

And then take another break.

"[On Wednesday], Voodoo Denver begins 24-hour operations until early Monday when we will close for two days, catch our collective breath, and reopen Wednesday for another five days of 24-hour Voodoo Doughnuts," explains their statement, which continues: "We're kicking it off with an 11 a.m. press conference with Mayor Michael Hancock cutting the ribbon." Other guests, they reveal, include former Denver Nugget player and head coach Bill Hanzlick. And, hey, there's a party afterward at Blush & Blu, Voodoo's beer-and-coffeehouse neighbor.

"Soon, very, very soon, we will have hired and trained enough Denverites to keep the store open 24-hours-a-day EVERY day!" promises their e-mail, which also issues this plea: "Come on down to Colfax, hang out with your friends in line and bring home a fabulous pink box filled with your favorite Voodoo Doughnuts."

Their enthusiastic e-mail even roots for the orange-and-blue. "Go Denver! Go Broncos! We love you!"

Question is, what do Denverites love more? The Broncos or doughnuts from Voodoo? Kidding, people, kidding.

Oh you sad little man. First of all, not a fox fan. That's hilarious to think. Secondly, if you ever actually read a post from VooDoo, or an interview, or asked, you would know that hiring has been their biggest delay in being open 24/7. Third... have you tried to hire anyone lately?? I have. it takes months to find someone who actually works. You have just made my night, you are so.... so... oh it's just too funny.

WTF> NO one said anything about finding decent help. The Fox news right wing bullshit is getting old.

With all of your drum beating for Voodoo Doughnut, you might want to mention that they only takes cash, so someone doesn't drive 2 miles out of the way just to get these for the office.

Can't find decent help. Not surprising. People want jobs but they sure don't want to work.

Uh, oh...I can now see myself purchasing and consuming a dozen of these belt-busters on the way home from the bar.  Time to preemptively go to the gym.

I hope this 24/7 schedule lasts longer than it did at Tom's Urban (formerly Tom's Urban 24).

@Sher Quintana  ... true that.


They're like the "Monster Garage" of donuts ... garnish and inelegant.

@DonkeyHotay  Nice grammar, you pretentious asshat. You know, for someone who likes to think of themselves in an elevated light and try to poke fun of others' supposed lack of intellect, you'd think you'd understand the appropriate usage of "doesn't" and "don't". Now go edit your post, you miserable fucking pussy.

@DonkeyHotay @UFAIL Donkey=Seriously considering attempting a career as a Donut Critic....because he's that much of a pretentious douche.  Oh, and I believe the term you were looking for was "garish", you fucking dipshit. Quick, as per usual, go edit your post.
