One of my best days of last summer consisted of a few simple components: a few friends and I rode our bikes to Cartems Donuterie, got two boxes, (including one of each vegan flavour), and continued on to Crab Park.

I don’t believe I’ve ever seen an episode of Twin Peaks, although I am quite aware of its resurgence, perhaps thanks to the hipster set’s fondness for reconstituting obscure cult classics.
