Imagine my sheer excitement and awe, in the back of a cab, stuck in a bit of New York City rush hour traffic, when I spotted The Donut Pub, located on W 14th at 7th Ave. Traffic was slow enough for me to snap a quick photo, which I'm considering printing, framing and hanging somewhere important. Maybe even giving as gifts.
Convergence of so many things I consider to be wonderful.
First, donut. Really, there's not much better than a good fresh donut. The traditional cake-type are my favorite, I'm not a big fan of the airy-melt-in-your-mouth Crispy Cremes. Although if put in front of me, they'll do in a pinch.
Second, neon lights. I love neon signs. The simpler the better, and it doesn't get more simple than this. They call out to me, and give me a feeling of authenticity. I trust neon.
Last, a pub. A small, cozy place to get together with the like-minded. In this case, donut lovers. I'm a bit skeptical of what this crowd might look like, gathered in one place, but I'm planning on giving it a try on my next visit! The online reviews are raving.
