Attention carb-lovers: Today (Friday) is National Doughnut Day! Yes, there
is actually a National Doughnut Day. You have the Salvation Army to thank:
they came up with the holiday as a way to boost morale for WW1 soldiers.
These days, we all need a little boost from the recessionary gloom, so
Krispy Kreme is celebrating by offering each customer a FREE donut--no
purchase required--at all its stores.
(Dunkin Donuts is also offering a 'free' donut with a beverage purchase, but
there are no local locations).
Portland Area Krispy Kreme locations:
9950 S.E. 82nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97266
8517 N.E. Andresen Road
Vancouver, WA 98665
16415 NW Cornell Road
Beaverton, OR 97006
PS: When reached for comment, Voodoo Doughnut employees delightedly
exclaimed that "Every day is doughnut day!" at their two locations (which
are not offering free doughnuts, but will, as always, offer devilishly fun
treats). The Old Town location's line is already stretching out the door
this morning, which is a good reminder that dougnuts are something worth
celebrating, even when you have to pay.
