Whatever Chicago's Doughnut Vault is putting in its gourmet doughnuts appears to be having bizarre side effects: something's causing people to line up for hours in rainy, 55-degree weather for the chance to buy a pastry from Food & Wine's #1 doughnut shop in the country. Want to know what it is? Maybe track down someone from this surprisingly serene time-lapse video of a Saturday morning doughnut frenzy along Franklin Street.
Umbrella-wielding folks lined up at 8:30 a.m.—an hour before opening—and Doughnut Vault sold out in about 2.5 hours. Digital video enthusiast Mark Pallman made the video.
