National Donut Day is a real “celebration” of sorts, which was actually invented by the Salvation Army. Please Google that fact yourself, because I am too exhausted right now to embed a website hyper link on this post. Various donut shop chains around the country are holding different promotions to celebrate this happy day honoring sugar-glazed fried dough. At the Krispy Kreme, for example, you can get a free donut just by showing up at one of their stores. But at Dunkin Donuts here in New York, you have to buy a beverage in order to get your free donut. At the DD around the corner from where I work – which is basically located in a back alley – they weren’t exactly forthcoming about the “Buy a Bevvy and Get a Free Donut” promotion, but they did eventually acquiesce to giving me a vanilla-frosted donut thing for “free” after initially trying to charge me $3.49 for medium Hazelnut Coffee. Nothing is easy.
