It's Paczki day in Metro Detroit and all cities with a substantial Polish population... how many are you going to eat today? What is your favorite flavor? New Martha Washington or New Palace Bakery? Will you go see the Polish Muslims perform tonight in Hamtramck? <br>
I'm on #2 right now and this when I feel worst about my (self) imposed exile from the Great Lake State... the paczki from anyplace except Hamtramck just don't taste the same (but at least in SW Ohio, they can still spell 'paczki' and don't just try and pass off regular jelly doughnuts) <br>
When I was at U of M, I used to wake up at 4a on Paczki Day, drive down to Hamtramck and get 2-3 dozen to bring back from my morning class on that day along with a box for the ChemE and AOSS admin offices.. later that evening, we'd go to Old Town Tavern and give them Polka music to play to rest of the evening... it was a good time. <br>
Any MGoBloggers suggest good paczki places in non-metro Detroit locations for the readers of the board? Chicago? Pittsburgh? Buffalo? Milwaukee? I scoured lists of bakeries in Boston one time for a buddy who was living there and found him a single place with real paczki... it was a hour long subway ride out to Chestnut Hill, but he was happy.
