Top Pot taking full advantage of Golden Tate

Maybe Golden Tate should look for some kickback from Top Pot Doughnuts, or at least a free box of maple bars each week. Something must be done.

That is because the Seattle-based doughnut chain is taking full advantage now of Tate’s early-morning (and likely drunken) romp into a Top Pot store with a friend. The two were looking for, what else, maple bars.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the chain has a new advertising slogan: “Irresistible ... but please wait until we're open.”

Tate was issued a trespass warning after he and his buddy entered through an unlocked door and swiped some maple bars – and the keys to the place. Later, Tate returned with the keys. An employee calling 911 said that Tate was drunk and “being retarded.”

"When I got here, that was one of the first things I had," Tate said in an apology following the incident. "They're irresistible. It was a foolish mistake that won't happen again, but if you ever want some maple bars, that's the place to go."

The Seahawks have a marketing agreement with Top Pot.
