Not the best way to start the year

First the Rose Bowl, now this:

la.foodblogging reports that Krispy Kreme has terminated its agreement with its Southern California franchisee. It just seems like yesterday that Angelenos were driving out to the far reaches of the county to savor the crack-laced goodness of the hot Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts, but if an agreement isn't reached in 30 days, local stores will be forced to remove all Krispy Kreme signage, and, I fear, the famed doughnut theaters (pictured above). While losangelous notes that it's practically an LA tradition just to recyle old signange or replace one letter in the store name when things like this occur (see: Mashti Malone's, Vons/Jons/Rons...yes Rons! I actually saw one once), let's hope it doesn't come to that.

In other news, the DWP pays to drink bottled water. Oof.

UPDATE (1/6/06): Southern Californians dodged a bullet. L.A. Observed reports that a deal has been struck between Krispy Kreme Korporate and the local licensee. The crazy doughnut runs would've been more than the city could bear.
