Uptown finally has a doughnut shop -- just like on TV

Now, in a case of life imitating art, the made-up Superior Donuts has a real-world counterpart: Uptown Donuts, which opened over the weekend at 1122 W. Wilson.

    Uptown finally has a doughnut shop -- just like on TV
    Ever since "Superior Donuts" debuted on CBS in 2017, fans of the set-in-Chicago-but-films-in-LA television series have been searching in vain for the allegedly Uptown-based doughnut shop that gives the show its name. It doesn't exist. Now, in a case of life imitating art, the made-up Superior Donuts has a real-world counterpart: Uptown Donuts, which opened over the weekend at 1122 W.

    Statute,
    I will always respond to negativity, we have enough of that in the world. The constant attacks on the Alderman and our community is as I said counterproductive and borders.on just being plain mean spirited. I see that his post was removed, that’s a start!! Unfortunately I have had just one too many interactions with this particular person that my hair is on fire and the continuous posts slamming any positive additions to our neighborhood is frustrating at best. The latest was about the new upscale restaurant opening on Lawrence, I could go on.
    I am a longtime resident here and will always speak up when it is the same person maligning folks who are looking forward to an Uptown that is finally starting to thrive.

  • UK and Jeff - Pointless, isn't it? And, frustrating, too? So, why bother......you two are at opposite ends of the spectrum and both of you have this need to "be right." Gee, that's really adult....so you throw your apples back and forth at each other.
    B-o-r-i-n-g....and clutters up a thread for no reason other than ego and you "need" to be right.
