Earl King liked his Tastee Donuts "Glazed"

Turns out my line below about "some famous-in-New-Orleans musician who penned some great jazz number at the Tastee Donut on Prytania St." was a bit of an understatement...I've since been reminded by a few people that my friend had been talking about Earl King.

(Thanks Slimbolala for the following link to a story about King holding court at the Tastee Donut.)

Twiropa, the twine factory-turned-trendy music venue has also been demolished recently. I went to the website looking for any info about it, but there's no info there -- just a relic of its former clubby self, and nothing to indicate that you couldn't go catch a show there tonight. Which makes me sort of appreciate the cornerstone value of the web. I just wish there had been a Tastee Donut website -- well, actually, there is, but it's just a logo and a contact form. No mention of Earl King. Or of closings.

Isn't there an open Tastee Donuts at the corner of N. Claiborne and Bayou Road? I used to live by there and was always told the Sunday morning batches were THE BEST.
