My lack of paczki is YOUR EMERGENCY
March 4, 2014 1:34 PM Subscribe
After a week of vaguely making plans to pre-order and never getting around to it, my Polish boyfriend and I would like to get some paczki in Chicago for Fat Tuesday! However, we couldn't go early in the morning, and we are lame and didn't plan, and now I'm wondering if there are any bakeries in Chicago that will still have paczki in the late afternoon/evening?

I would like to just call around when I get off work but I'm probably going to have to plan my (public transit) route from work and jet there the moment I get off (can't call inside the building, bad signal). I know some paczki-bearing bakeries are still open 'til 7PM or even 9PM, but I have no idea which are likely to have stock. Bonus points if the bakery has rose/prune/apricot/poppyseed/other unique or traditionally Polish flavors (other than the basics, basically).
