Wicker Park doughnut wars in the flesh

I was picking up out-of-town clients Saturday morning and got caught in the very real crossfire of the Wicker Park doughnut war on North Damen Avenue.

It was standing room only at about 10:00am at Stan's Donuts just north of the Damen Blue Line stop in Wicker Park Saturday morning.
Chicago gourmet doughnut powerhouse Glazed and Infused is directly across the street.

If you have not been, please stop by this very amusing location on a Saturday or Sunday morning for donuts and people watching.

The Milwaukee/North and Damen intersection long known for counter culture, artists and music (and crime) is now a circus of old school residents, "hipster" parents, immediate post college renters, bums, hippies, yuppies and tourists... fueled on fancy doughnuts and expensive coffee.

It's a pretty great show.
