Time to buy the doughnuts...from a truck.

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken just got permits to operate in D.C. (previously the truck was only operating in Northern Virginia). Today, they'll be in Friendship Heights; the truck will move to NoMa Thursday and return to Virginia with a stop in Ballston Friday (fans can track the truck's movements via Twitter).

Astro's truck serves doughnuts with rotating flavors, chicken fingers, and epic fried chicken sandwiches (including their Old Bay doughnut one).
