This Saturday, a group of people will embark on a first-of-its-kind event here in the nation’s capital: a donut crawl. From 10am til 1pm, the group will stop by several popular donut shops to savor each stop’s offerings. The group will bike to each location, in groups of 10 people.
From the registration page:
Join us on Saturday, November 23 as we bike through DC and enjoy donuts from some of the top-rated restaurants and bakeries in town.
The first ever DC Donut Crawl will start at Chocolate Crust and begin at 10am. They’ll be making some delicious donuts and possibly a special “doissant” (DC’s answer to Brooklyn’s “cronut”) just for our group.
Get there on time, as we’ll be biking in groups of 10 to each location. The second stop on the crawl will be Golden Brown Delicious (GBD). After that, we’ll hop back on our bikes and head to Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken.
Our last stop will be District Doughnut, who will host us in the incredible shared kitchen space of Union Kitchen. We should be done close to 1pm and will have biked a total of about 8 miles.
How did all this begin? Erik, the event’s founder, sheds some light:
My plan for this event is to visit a handful of the top-rated donut shops in town, all on the same day. I want to remember how each donut smells and tastes, to be able to recount the texture of each bite and also to recall the ambiance of each shop, then compare them all.
I quickly realized that I’d be eating a ton of donuts in a few short hours, so I decided I would try to offset the calories I would consume by riding my bike between each of the shops.
