I have a long relationship with Donut Connection. After I moved to Charleston in 2003, it was the first place where I bought a meal. It was the morning after I’d dropped off the U-Haul. The night before, I’d been too tired and too frazzled from the drive to eat, so I’d just gone to sleep. The next day, while exploring my new home, I found the Donut Connection in Kanawha City, bought a dozen assorted and ate myself sick.
