VooDoo Doughnuts come to Denver - Just in time for a good hexing

VooDoo Doughnuts Denver 2014
Tonight Dave and I took Jacob on his first trip to a new downtown shop that came all the way from Oregon. What a treat that was for all of us.

VooDoo Doughnuts came in like a lion near the end of 2013 and the lines have been almost non-stop for the shop with the pink boxes. If you are looking for a quick trip in and out, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for an adventure, get in line, because the stares from the people driving by is worth every bit of the chilly 1.5 hour wait.

In line at Voodoo Doughnuts Denver 2014

We met an employee from Dunkin Donuts who had to run to an ATM in between a tattoo parlor and a medical marijuana shop, I am pretty sure that is something that only a Coloradan can say with a semi-straight face. She even brought a book with her to read while she was waiting in line. Dave ducked into a lovely bar named Blush and Blu right next door for coffee and hot cocoa to keep Jacob and I from getting too cold while we were waiting. That was an adventure for Dave, since no one warned him in advance it was a gay bar. The coffee was Coda, so I was entertained AND warm.

When we got up to the front, it was around 8:30 at night and I had a list of what I wanted. Two "cock and balls", Two "Voodoo Dolls", a plethora of Jake chosen donuts and then, a Voodoo dozen.

Plethora of lovely doughnuts from VooDoo Doughnuts

The best part of the night was the Tom Brady Voodoo doll that was there for "hexing" by the partons! Jacob wanted to make sure to inflict his own torment on the mini quarterback by giving him a nice stabbing in his gut, Indigestion or something worse?? Playoff games can get nasty and so glad VooDoo Doughnuts was willing to help us out. "It is only weird if it doesn't work" Right??

The Tom Brady Voodoo Doughnut - getting hexed! Denver Broncos Fans rejoice!

Some things Denverites should know before going to VooDoo Doughnuts.

*The line will take a while, don't whine, just accept it.
*GET CASH - The ATM is slow or out of operation, so just get your cash in advance, VooDoo doesn't accept any other form of payment, even if you beg.
*If you are worried about your kids hearing words they don't want to hear, you might not want to bring them into VooDoo, the colorful names are funny for adults!
*If you want a unique wedding there, do it! Oh, and invite me.
*Try everything you can, why not? If you are going to stand in line that long, go for the gold.
*Do not park in any of the parking lots behind the shop, you will get towed. Park on a side street and walk in. We walked four blocks for these doughnuts.

Great tips, I wouldn't have thought of the 'cash only,' so I am happy you shared. I may need one of those Voodoo doughnut dolls for the parking attendants. I've had too many tickets in Downtown D. Love how they entered Mile High with the Brady doughnut. Brilliant!
