If you saw our recent post, Get Your FREAK On: Just Your Average Family Freak Show, you'll know that we are method party-givers. We trained at The Party-Givers' Studio and we are dedicated to doing thorough research to hone our technique. When it's party time, we live it, we breathe it, and we NEVER break character! It was only obvious, necessary even, that we search out local haunts that would get us into a circus "headspace."
|Now that's a great sign!|
The circus, as a theme, is rife with possibilities. Imagine (sometimes it helps to close your eyes) a donut shop with a trapeze artist, a clown, a balloon-animal artist, an elephant, and a ferris wheel. Now imagine a donut shop with a faux-mansard roof painted in the red & white stripes of a big-top circus tent and the complete and utter absence of a trapeze artist, clown, elephant, or ferris wheel. The latter describes Circus Do-Nuts. That might sound like a little bit of a dig, but given the exciting potential, the management at Circus Do-Nuts doesn't allow the theme become fully-realized.
|Don't you kind of want to paint the chef's hat with a rainbow |
afro and turn the man wearing the striped pants and See's Candy
dress into a clown? A circus clown.
|The good bones are there including molded fiberglass chairs,|
|...and checkerboard linoleum.|
|And then there's the donuts!|
Are you getting tired of hearing me say that donuts (and practically everything else worth eating) are not on Mr. Tiny's current eating plan? You are? Well, trust me, not nearly as tired as Mr. Tiny is of not eating this delicious stuff!
|My favorite part was the novelty toy vending |
machine in the back corner of the shop.
|Don't make fun of her...it only took her about |
fourteen tries to put the quarters in.
Sometimes working a machine that is intended
for children can be really hard.
We decided on the gag set - two whoopie cushions and a rubber spider.
If you're ever out and about in Torrance, be sure to check out Circus Do-Nuts. It may not be the only place to buy donuts, lottery tickets, ice cream bars, and whoopie cushions, but for our money, it is the best circus-themed establishment in Torrance, CA at which to do so!
