it is written on the stars that my favorite foods are popcorn and sushi.
blueberries are a close third.
but for my sweet tooth?
the donut sings my siren song.
i don't keep these beautiful rings of sugar anywhere nearby while at home,
but on the road, they are mandatory roadie rider food.
they are there every day, really, EVERY DAY.
there is a rule I share with those who work with me:
"if you see me with a donut, slap it out of my hand"
and this Has happened. I have been donut-smacked.
while on tour with the mighty Motley Crue, our stop in Portland contained a surprise...
(here we are celebrating Tommy's birthday)
we opened our sleepy little road weary eyes to pink boxes with amazing things inside,
labelled VOODOO DONUTS.
in the boxes I was to put in the band's dressing rooms:
for Vince, Nikki & Mick:
for Tommy, this we found:
if you don't get it, that's ok. you'll just need to brush up on your Tommy Lee lore.
so while in Portland this last week for the CORALINE premiere (full account here)
Drew and I went to Voodoo Donuts to see what they were all about.
it was a chilly Sunday morning but the place was fully crowded, when we got inside, a line was running outside.
The smell of baking donuts was knock-out amazing. The decor was punk-slasher-donuty goodness.
here is their menu, and Drew was very disappointed that they were OUT of the blood-fliied. He settled for a bacon maple bar,
which sounded like a bad idea even to this donut lover. If you look closely, you can see in the bottom right hand the price for what they sent on over to the Crue boys...now, do you get it?
here is the sweet perfection that I chose, a plain cake with chocolate frosting...can you taste it?
