If you pass by a number of the local Dunkin' locations across the Hudson Valley, especially in the Wappingers/Poughkeepsie area right off Route 9, it's likely you've seen 'the crew.'

I don't live too far from the group that hangs across from the Hannaford in Wappingers, and have even mentioned to my dad that he should go and hang with the locals over a cup of coffee and a donut one day, but now that I think of it, maybe I should be the one joining the parking lot crew...
