STERNS in Seattle and FAMILY DONUT shop - Tue, 01/12/10 2:39 PM

Today during the KUOW interview Jane mentioned the Cambodian donut shop here. I doubt they have time to visit his shop, (which anyway is just industrial: equipment, donuts on cooling racks, a register, and a line of customers, --they have 1 or 2 itty bitty tables, but it is really just a 'take out' shop, so nothing is really lost by them not visiting the shop). Anyway, the reason I write is that I didn't know where they are staying here in Seattle, but as a longterm fan of FAMILY DONUT, (since they opened), I was trying to connect the proprietor with the Sterns I live near that shop and contacted the owner and I suggested he should take a dozen donuts to the Stern's hotel tomorrow morning. Is it possible that you can let me know and I will pass on to FAMILY DONUT? Or, you can call him directly: Family Donut Shop 2100 N Northgate Way Seattle, WA 98133 (206) 368-9107 I'm just trying to support my local food business!
If this method of contact is inappropriate for this forum, pls just delete this message. I'm only using the forum because of the shortness of time before the Sterns depart and I'm just looking for any way to contact someone at Roadfood.com. I can't go to the lecture tonight either....

Interestingly, Annie's Donut shop here in Portland, a Stern reviewed local treasure, is also run by immigrants from Cambodia.

This is probably too late to help, but I think I read in one of Michael's posts that he was staying at the W Hotel.  If so, I say "good choice" - it is also my favorite hotels in downtown Seattle.

Yep, I am at the airport, heading home, enjoying free WiFi (which is my one and only complaint about the otherwise excellent W Hotel -- $14.95 per day for internet service). I did get a lovely dairy-free, trans-fat-free, teensy-weensy donut with my morning coffee from W room service.

Michael, was that donut "taste-free" as well?  :) 

My friend and I ran a 5-mile run with about a few thousand others on a very cold morning (the cups at the water stations were frozen to the tables!) in Central Park last Saturday and as a reward to ourselves we stopped at the Doughnut Plant after for some Peanut Butter glazed, strawberry-filled & Meyer Lemon doughnuts.  Soooo good!

Bill, a five mile run?  Seriously?  Most folks can lose the cops that are chasing them after just a few blocks.  Come on - bob and weave...you can't just run in a straight line.

Seriously.  The feeling of crossing that finish line is indescribable!!  If you think THAT was crazy, my first official run was at midnight on New Year's Eve in Central Park.  The Emerald Nuts Midnight Fun Run (4-mile).  They had fireworks, a costume contest (women running in bras and panties, 5 guys dressed as Tetris pieces, etc...), a laser show and DJ and champagne to drink at the 2-mile mark.  My coach ran with me and we had a great time!

Hey, give billyboy some credit, he did lose the police.  They just found him again at the Doughnut Plant!
