Nobody makes a bagel quite like USA #1 Donut. Don't tell Monolo, I'd hate to get on his bad side. He is quite the chef, but you cannot argue diary, sometimes it just tastes better when someone else makes it. The joint I refer to is located in a strip mall near Palms. It is a drive for sure, but I am on the road today so I made the trip. They greeted me with a hug and a restroom token. Which I think is a Frank Zappa B-side. Anyway, as I ate my breakfast, I noticed a cabbie putting a 'no smoking' sticker on his cab. He kept moving it around trying to find the best location for it. He had a corner peeled so he could stick it in a place and then observe whether or not it would play. After five minutes he decided on the driver's side back window near the lock. Good choice I thought. He fired up his cab, layed down the rubber and fish tailed off. What a world.
