Donut Summit! Who's going?

  1. I think there might be a sign of how organized the event will be when the first place on the list of places people should bring donuts to the summit from is both spelled wrong and has been closed for a couple of years.

    I think it might be a ploy to get people to bring the organizer donuts. ;-)

      Well done, MiLA! You're the first Chowsleuth to have noticed one of the (many) errors!!!

      But, no doubt, you also noticed the apparent disclaimer: "Here’s a brief list of some of the places we hope to see represented"

      Hope springs eternal, no? Just as donuts always rise...

        Seems pretty telling that they couldn't get the donut shops to donate donuts.

          I am guessing this person is NOT Jonathan Gold.

            I know some of the people holding this. It isn't really a formal event per se, they're not charging admission or anything, so there's no reason to think they even should have tried to get donuts donated to the cause. It's just a group of bloggers having fun and inviting their readers (and anyone else who might be interested) to share donuts and vote on which they like - I don't think they're trying to make it anything more than that. And the more people who attend, hopefully the more shops will be represented.

            That said, once again it has been scheduled when I can't make it.

              Dude! I've been wondering where you got off to! I miss you! :)

        2. You're both so right, MiLA and SGirlie...I simply wanted to find out who amongst us would be going. One might assume, from the lack of responses, that it's no one!

          1. Doughnut Ho that I am, I was gutted at missing the inaugural Summit and vowed to make it to the return. But, I have to say, the outreach and vibe for this weekend seems to be underwhelming. Any 'Hounders who attended last year planning to go this year? What's the scoop? Cheers.
