A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

imag1327I have to admit, in the weeks building up to the opening of Janky Donuts, I was actually pumped at the thought of a new donut shop. Yup, Janky Donuts, you fooled me. If you don’t know by now, Janky Donuts is an art installation (which opened in July) – creatively marketed like it was going to be a new restaurant -I even saw it show up on Urbanspoon for a minute.

imag1326The installation was the brain child of five friends: Colin Driesch, Winston MacDonald, Luke O’Sullivan, Dominic Casserly, and Andrew Meers. See the Individuals Collective website here.

imag1325The “donut shop” is a front for a back room gun operation.

imag1323Move into the back room and that is where things get interesting.

Loved the exhibit and the marketing behind it was brilliant. I attended on a night when Tavern Road paired up with the team to offer real donuts for one night only. Thank goodness, because after huffing up 4 flights of stairs, I deserved some real donuts! Ha.

This exhibit is now closed.
