With its low self-esteem and high urban blight, Hartford is the ultimate underdog city. Sad City Hartford documents the joys, sorrows and eccentricities of New England's Rising Star.

Buffalo/Toronto Invasion Repelled!

The Hartford Courant is reporting that Tim Horton's will close it Connecticut stores, ending the Canadian (let's face it, Buffalo is practically part of Canada) coffee shops attempt to gain a foothold in the market. While Tim Horton's may try to slink quietly back to Canada, Connecticut is planning to launch a counter-insurgency of Dunkin' Donuts; for defensive purposes of course!


  1. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! HOW... HOW DARE THEY!!! There breakfast sandwiches far surpass anything you can get out there on the fast food circuit!!! Sausage egg and cheese on one of there biscuits...

  2. Oh no, if anything, there are not enough Tims in the area. I wouldn't bother stopping at a DD but when I spot a Tims, gotta stop for a donut & coffee. Trouble is, it is a treck to find a Tim Hortons.

  3. where will the WhalePack get their coffee and donuts now?
