Pairing a doughnut with most any food item other than coffee can lead to meals even Elvis couldn't countenance. But San Francisco's Alcatraz Landing Cafe has broken ground by creating a pairing even Elvis would not wear. It's the doughnuts and tight, short-shorts one-stop shopping experience.
San Franciscans have long enjoyed poking fun at the tourists flocking to our fair city -- many of whom appear to have enjoyed a doughnut or two in their day -- dressing inappropriately in shorts. Who would have thought we would be reinforcing -- and perhaps even introducing -- these behaviors? We have met the enemy, and he is us. Wearing shorts. And eating a Krispy Kreme.
Are doughnuts and lycra shorts on most people's shopping lists? Not exactly, say store employees.
People tend to buy doughnuts before heading out on a bay cruise. After disembarking, they often pick up material goods, such as mid-thigh-level shorts. Evidently, eating a doughnut on the bay burns more calories than you'd think.
Lycra does stretch, after all. And so do we.
