Redwood City CA: Chuck's Donuts
Chuck's Donuts was a venerable late-night stop for students and nerds of all stripes when I was first introduced to it in the 1970's. No true donut shop ever changes and Chuck's holds true to the standard. It is still the slightly dingy, 24-hour sanctuary of sugar and caffeine that we all need at some points in our lives. I headed to Chuck's as soon as I got off the plane. I was able to restrain myself to the extent that I just got a raspberry donut hole. Did I need it? No. Did I enjoy it after five hours in a middle seat? Heck yeah. Sometimes you just need a little nostalgia.
