How thoughtful of you to come to town on my birthday weekend! A+ for donuts. I'm in.

Sounds intriguing. Apparently you do have to get there very early to get the best selection.

Sounds great! I'll be there :)

I have a show that afternoon, but...if this is in the morning, yeah, I might could make this.

Are you thinking the original South Philly location?
posted by nosila at 2:49 PM on January 14, 2013


Yes, the original one on Federal.

Sorry, the original on South 2nd.

Tentatively in as long as it doesn't conflict with the fiancee's stage managing gig.

Diskeater, it's perfectly acceptable to break off the engagement for Federal Donuts.

zippy's right, dear. I'll understand. I'm keeping the cat. The good one.

Huh. I, too, am visiting Philly this weekend (storm permitting) and will endeavor to show up for donuts.

Hmm I feel like the promise of donuts may be the only way I'll be able to work up the nerve to actually come to one of these things.... Hopefully I'll see you there!

Nemo's squalls were not enough to keep me away.

PHILADELPHIA, I AM (about to be) IN YOU!

I'm running a few minutes late but am on my way!!

Ditto!

Woo! So nice to meet y'all! I look forward to a proper dimly-lit alcohol-assisted meetup soon, also!
posted by lazaruslong at 8:58 AM on February 9, 2013


Great time seeing everyone, as always! Special unofficial welcome to Lazaruslong! I'll throw up an IRL soonish for the official welcoming party.

Thank you for coming out post-Nemopocalypse for donuts. Philadelphia does a get together right.

I made it to Philly but could not work out the logistics of getting to Federal Donuts (4 friends, early breakfast later than expected, one car &c.) so I am sorry I didn't get to meet any of you.

But yours is a lovely city, Philadelphians of MeFi, and I had a great time in it.
