Maybe it's the psychological comfort blankie for East Coasters displaced in San Diego. Maybe it's the power of whimsical pastels. Or maybe I simply don't have enough Bill Belichick in me to understand the hype. But people got very, very excited when Dunkin' Donuts announced they're coming to San Diego. And here's your first all-but-confirmed rumor: The city's flagship store will go into Embassy Suites in Downtown (601 Pacific Hwy). The one across from The Headquarters, which will bring Mozza and a whole lot more tourists who get sleepy after scarfing pie. Insiders say Embassy Suites—which already overhauled their guest rooms in 2012—will undergo another upgrade to the entire F&B department, prepping for the Headquarters-generated buzz. Someone inside the hotel confirmed the perky doughnut/not-bad coffee chain is being put in. Dunkin' is reportedly aiming for 150 stores across SoCal.
