North Texans Experience Washington D.C. Treats While in Town for Inauguration

Close to 900,000 people are expected to be in Washington, D.C. for the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump on Friday.

That’s more people than the population of Fort Worth.

NBC 5's Kris Gutierrez caught up with some Texans in line at a shop of D.C. delicacies.

Derek Wilson of Carrollton stood in a line wrapped around the block to get a taste of Georgetown Cupcakes.

“It’s my first time. I’m excited,” said Wilson. “We’ve been to Georgetown once before, but the line was a little too daunting, so we never got to try it out."

But Monday, he and his fiance decided to tough it out.

“If there’s a line, it’s gotta mean something, so I’m banking on that,” said Wilson.

He says cupcakes are his thing.

“We love Sprinkles. We’ve had Sprinkles in Dallas and now we really need to try this and we have the time today and we’re going to go for it.”

Wilson was not alone.

We asked him when was the last time he stood in line for something like this back home in North Texas.

“Pecan Lodge BBQ. That’s probably the one that would come to mind," Wilson said. "I think in Texas, though, there’s just so many places to eat. We don’t have a lot of the whole line thing. It’s kind of a little bit of rarity, so.”

“I think we’re making pretty good pace, so I’m assuming about 30 to 45 more minutes and we’ll have a cupcake,” said Wilson.

In the end, he said he was worth it.
