This Sunday is the annual Societa Sant’Amato Di Nusco processional down and around Vernon Boulevard.1 While the members of the Societa give thanks to their patron saint back in southern Italy, my gratitude will be focused elsewhere, as this week the people of LIC have been truly blessed by the news that two outlets purveying donuts will be coming to our town. The one that received all the press attention, is that Doughnut Plant is moving it’s headquarters and a production facility to the Falchi Building. The one that will actually have the greatest effect on local residents, was uncovered by The Court Square Blog: Dunkin’ Donuts will be replacing Joy Gourmet on 21st Street and 45th Avenue, across from Murray Park.
Need I say more? No, it’s a beautiful weekend and we are getting a second Dunkin’. Abbondanza and blessed be, Sant’ Donut Di LIC.
