Donkey Coffee played an April Fools’ prank; here’s how Apple should be working harder with representation in its emoji library

Today is Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Donkey Coffee and Espresso announced the grand opening of its new location in The Short North in Columbus. 

However, there was just one problem: it’s grand opening is on April 1, 2020, indicating the announcement was merely an April Fools’ Day prank. 

Donkey Coffee released a fake statement on Facebook announcing the opening of the new branch. Earlier in the week, it teased an announcement of something big coming on Twitter, and fans of the coffee shop were disappointed in the comments when they realized it was an April Fools’ joke. 

So, though you can get the delicious Donkey Coffee in Athens, it looks like the chances of a new branch in The Short North is not happening anytime soon.
