Have you been following the Cronut mania lately, or better yet actually tried the coveted dessert? For those unfamiliar, a "Cronut" is a delicious half donut, half croissant, newly created and trademarked by Dominique Ansel bakery. This article on Eater pretty much highlights all of the updates (including Cronut scalpers on Craigslist... New Yorkers are crazy). My friend is visiting from D.C. this weekend and we're going to brave the lines and hopefully grab a bite. Wish us luck!
