Giant Drippy Doughnut

Unfortunately, the Giant Drippy Doughnut is no longer on the roof. The shop was closed so I had no opportunity to find out if it would be put back up.

[Howard Beattie, 08/30/2023]

The doughnut was blown off of its pole and into the parking lot during a March 2023 snowstorm. No one was injured, and the doughnut shop has pledged to either repair or replace the doughnut, which is a Burlington landmark.
