lamar's donuts: chocolate fluff filled

on a trip to kansas city we hit lamar's donuts. these handcrafted works of art are not for the weak at heart (or those with weak hearts). lamar's chocolate iced bar chocolate fluff filled is one delectable sinker that can turn into serious addiction - - - just be careful of the subsequent rapid palpitations.

after your 800 calorie indulgence, use the rest of your daily calorie intake at jack stack's bbq (my favorite in town).

amano: guayas

the pink palace, 1930's.

just outside the lawns of the beverly hills hotel, you take the path that leads to the polo lounge. passing by bungalow number four, you discretely nod to gable and lombard.

you arrive at the watering hole and find it filled with scents of musk, cigar, rye, and celebrity... having just returned from his polo match, you overhear will rogers humoring fairbanks and tracy stating "all i know is just what i read in the papers, and that's an alibi for my ignorance".

the bartender knows your drink and gives a stiff pour. a reserved booth with a shiny black box of chocolate on the table awaits. you sit, sip, then open the box. immediately after your first bite of chocolate, you are overwhelmed with chocolate transcendence that encompasses the feel and aromas of the room.

this bar is luxury, lust, and a must.
