hey Dave,

Roeser's is a great place! Remember on Bozo Circus when a Roeser Bakery gift certificate was one of the prizes for throwing a ping pong ball into a bucket during the Grand Prize Game! Those were the days.
A friend of mine has a great story about a guy who pouted all the way to Wisconsin after he wasn't able to buy a chocolate donout at Roeser. Very funny story!
