[By Tina Koyama in Seattle] I try to limit my consumption of donuts to two or three a year. The last time may have been in January with Urban Sketchers Seattle at Top Pot Doughnuts, when it happened to be Elvis’s birthday (the special was the King’s Rings – with bacon, of course). Not unlike that day, today was yet another notable day for U.S. consumption of fat and sugar – namely, National Donut Day!
Forward-thinking sketch journalist that I am, I started documenting this important holiday by going to the Top Pot in the Wedgwood neighborhood yesterday. With a giant donut on the overhang and palm trees to boot, it’s the best-decorated Top Pot in town.
I resisted going inside, however, because I was saving that for the big day at Top Pot's flagship downtown store. After I scarfed down my Bavarian cream, I caught part of Top Pot’s neon sign and the trees shading the sidewalk. Happy Fat and Sugar Day!
