Zach Foster of Blue Dot Donuts

Before you even open a box of a dozen donuts from Blue Dot Donuts, you can smell the sweet, warm pastries calling.

When you finally crack the top open, you can see the intense colors of assorted donuts freshly baked and frosted—these are not your average donuts. Like jelly in a donut, New Orleans culture is injected right into the heart of Blue Dot Donuts.

Name: Zach Foster
Store: Blue Dot Donuts
Since: Founded in 2011

If you are like us, you might have a few copies of Blade Runner in your DVD rack. Released in 1982, it slowly became a classic that changed sci-fi in cinema forever. This week brings forth the sequel that many dreaded for years.
