Polish Pączki, a special type of donut.
If you've never heard of pączki, then you're probably not from Chicago or Detroit, cities where Fat Tuesday also means Pączki Day. The Polish doughnut is something like a berliner or a bismark, but is traditionally made with an even richer dough. In cities with a large Polish population, they're kind of a big deal -- especially on Pączki Day.

Unfortunately for ex-Midwesterners, they're relatively hard to find in town. The good new is we know where you can get your fix.

These traditionally round cakes are available around town now through Mardi Gras, which falls this year on Tuesday, February 17. But if you want in on the baby-searching action, you'd better act fast and get your order in ASAP.
