Donut! Donut! DONUT! – April Panorama Submission

“Bad weather always looks worse through a window”, said Tom Lehrer…we might also add “…and a windshield”.

Spring has not been favorable for driving, though we had an excellent tech session on car washing and detailing from Studio A Detailing, a high-end, family run shop. Special consideration is made to removing fine grained surface scratches from prior wash jobs’ dirty towels, using proprietary solutions. We were, instructed on the best techniques, towels and wash tools (best in not marring the car’s finish) and no-rinse washes.

The weather turned in our favor for our 1st Annual Donut Endurance Run: a drive across central Kentucky for homemade, fresh donuts. Our first stop, after winding through the Kentucky countryside over Kentucky River tributaries, arrived at Doughdaddy outside Versailles, KY. Doughdaddy has taken over a closed gas station, retaining the pumps and mini-mart conveniences alongside a broad selection of donuts; cake, yeast, crullers, turnovers and twists. Our group of 21 cars and 28 folk enjoyed a rest, gas and donut stop. As Homer Simpson said: “Donuts, is there anything they can’t do?”

Our next stop was Danville, Ky, running back roads through the thoroughbred horse farms of the bluegrass and through the glacial escarpments and canyons of the Kentucky River. Over millennia, the river has eroded limestone canyons, creating 1,000 foot tall cliffs on either side of a mile wide canyon, our county road cut out of the limestone cliffs.

The topography flattened out near Danville for our next donut stop: Burke’s Bakery, a local mainstay for over 60 years (I heartily recommend the cinnamon crumb!). After a morning of sugar, it was appropriate to add something from the other food groups: lunch at Captain Frank’s Hot Dog Emporium.

 Always remember: “No matter how great life is, it’s not complete without doughnuts”.

West Sixth Brewery Tour – Canceled

We first visited this Lexington Brewery a couple of years ago and had a great time. The Bluegrass region met us there last time and they are hoping to join us again this year. We are scheduled for a 2pm complementary tour. Lunch may be purchased at the adjoining Smithtown Seafood before we go on the tour.
