Daylight Donuts: Breckenridge, CO: 2005-present
This place is always in my heart and mind no matter where I end up in time and place. It all started back in 2005 with answering an add in the Summit Daily by walking through the front door and got with a Mohawk and hired on the spot by Richard as they were looking for a night-time donuts maker. Life at that moment changed, matured, materialized, and created plenty of Long Island Ice Tea memories from the Blue River Bistro next door.
Richard Snider, owner of the establishment for some time now was one of the best people I have ever met in my worldly travels. Marisa and Richard were there during my time of need, and I am forever grateful. Mike! That damned old cook. Still built like a brick shit house, and will outlive us all!
LONG LIVE MIKE!
The Summit Daily News did a write up of DD back in 2006. Great write-up. Richards mom did the framework, and we hung this unit on the wall heading out the back door. Somewhere amongst the words, I got a decorative mention of the
‘speckled tattooed cook YELLING!‘
, what a mention!
When in Breckenridge, there is no other place to go for breakfast and donuts.! Even the likes of Shaun White stops in, who I got to shank hands!
To me, it’s funny that they have a photo of me all high and might on the wall just a little above Kramer’s head. Love that comedian! Thankful for Richard and the crew at DD for giving me an eternal placement on the wall of fame.
Marisa Knoxs, my external sunshine! My drinking buddy, my ski partner, my lifetime sis! Thank you!
