A little bit more about Paczki...My dad embraced being of Polish decent. Loved the food and the language and the camaraderie with other poles. When I was a kid, he once took a road trip with friends from Connecticut to Detroit just to go to a couple of baseball games. On that trip he visited Hamtramck which then had a very large Polish population. He raved about Hamtramck on his return home. The town has such an unusual name that I've never forgotten it. It turns out that Mardi Gras is known as Paczki Day in Hamtramck.
