Went Out for a Long Walk…
To get my exercise, my five miles per day (which I did thank you very much). Very busy Saturday night with a big parade on the Strip for the Golden Knights. What a party.
But downtown was pumping as well and as I was trying to go around the Fremont Street Experience, what did I happen across but an evil place with a large round door. The brand new PinkBox Doughnut Shop on Main Street, right where the Fremont Experience ends.
Now this chain has five or six stores here in Las Vegas and plans for others in towns in the West. It started here in 2012 and expanded around the valley. Since we moved here I have heard of this mythical place, never seen one.
So braving the crowds, I entered the pink box of the store to the sight of about a billion doughnuts. I waited in the 15 minute line to ask if they had vegan doughnuts (for Kris) and they had a large selection of them. (It is Vegas, after all.) So I got her a pink box full and a pink box for me and managed to not get mugged by hungry drunks on the ten block walk home.
Yes, I had one and they really are as good as the reputation says. Oh, my…
And something interesting on the topic of the last week. All over their walls and on shelves and the counters were different products. All with the Pinkbox logo, most of them pink. T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, glasses, toys, you name it… This company has only been in business for just over 10 years here in Vegas. They clearly understand product and tourists.
Now that my eyes are really open after this last week, all I seem to see is product as well.
I will not have another doughnut until tomorrow. Maybe part of a bear claw, but not a doughnut.
If you are coming to Vegas, make a Pinkbox your first stop when you hit town. You will not be sorry.
My problem is that they are an easy walk from our condo.
