PLACE: DOCKSIDE DONUTS >>>


Open: 24 hours
With: A drive-thru
Located next to: Red's Valley Pub
Which is next week's: Three Drink Minimum
Can you believe: I'm back off the wagon?
That was: A dumb question, I know
My point is: There's a donut place
Located next to: A BAR!
My two fantasy worlds: Have finally collided
My overall sin: Gluttony

Let me first get out of the way the fact that, yes, Dockside Donuts is located in the shitiest part of Tacoma. This is not my opinion. This is a fact. I detest this fact.

In some other random diatribe, in some parallel universe where people actually give a crap about my opinion, I will passionately state my strong belief that the Tacoma Dome area is a history rich, extremely underutilized Mecca of business potential. I humbly honor those who have stood ground and set up shop around the Tacoma Dome. I shall patronize your businesses regardless, with hopes that Tacoma will follow.

Upon my first visit to Dockside Donuts, my point was proven when a man approached asking for money before I could even shut my car door. "I don't have any cash, but I'll buy you some donuts," Mr. DeRosa told the traveler. The unknown stranger declined this pastry offering.
