This place is always in my heart and mind no matter where I end up on this mudball. It all started back in 2005 with answering an add in the Summit Daily by walking through the front door of Daylight Donuts Breckenridge with a Mohawk, some trendy tattoos, and the attitude of WORK and was hired on the spot by Richard Snider myself. This place was looking for a night-time donuts maker, and I was just the man for the position.
Life from that point on 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 is one of the best people I have ever met in my worldly travels and the worker that he employed were of equal value. Front of the house worker/skier, who is now proudly self-employed, Marisa Knoxs with Richard were of the few that took the time out of there days to care for me after my resurrection in 2007.
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! Richard’s mom took the time to frame it, as we had the honors of placing this unit on the wall in the hall heading out the back door. Somewhere amongst the words, I got a decorative mention of the
“freckled tattooed cook YELLING!”
What a mention!
When in Breckenridge, CO there is no other place to go for breakfast and donuts, but you have to be there before it closes at twelve noon daily.!
Even the likes of Shaun White stops in, who I had the pleasure of 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 and positive memories that I will continue to carry throughout my lifetime.
Marisa Knoxs, my external sunshine!
My drinking buddy, my ski partner, my lifetime sis!
Thank you, love!
