Doughnuts, Skimpy Shorts on Cafe Menu

Stuffed with jelly?
Pairing a doughnut with most any food item other than coffee can lead to meals even Elvis couldn't countenance. But San Francisco's Alcatraz Landing Cafe has broken ground by creating a pairing even Elvis would not wear. It's the doughnuts and tight, short-shorts one-stop shopping experience.

San Franciscans have long enjoyed poking fun at the tourists flocking to our fair city -- many of whom appear to have enjoyed a doughnut or two in their day -- dressing inappropriately in shorts. Who would have thought we would be reinforcing -- and perhaps even introducing -- these behaviors? We have met the enemy, and he is us. Wearing shorts. And eating a Krispy Kreme.

Are doughnuts and lycra shorts on most people's shopping lists? Not exactly, say store employees. 

People tend to buy doughnuts before heading out on a bay cruise. After disembarking, they often pick up material goods, such as mid-thigh-level shorts. Evidently, eating a doughnut on the bay burns more calories than you'd think.

Lycra does stretch, after all. And so do we.

If you are curious, then head on down to the South Bay and checkout the Vietnamese coffee houses where one could get a nice strong drip coffee along with a view, a view that is often unobstructed where the servers are in commando.
