Homer Simpson's Two Favorite Food Groups

Doughnuts and Beer. Another year, another Donut Day. While Dunkin is making you purchase a coffee in order to get your free doughnut, Krispy Kreme is doing it up like they always do...handing them out for free! But hello! we live in New York, there are much better doughnuts. The place contributing to my celebration and a gentle weekend reminder after le

Doughnut Selection from the Doughnut Plant
Oh yes, oh yes, I will be eating Doughnut Plant today. Not from my usual hook-up locale, Joe's in Grand Central, but a special delivery straight from the Lower East Side. Speaking of Joe's, since we told you about the mango, it has not been seen. Instead raspberry has been making the rounds. Cashew is still there, as well as an occasional appearance by strawberry.

Chocolate Cake Doughnut
For those of you in Brooklyn, if you have not had the chocolate cake from Peter Pan, I suggest using this glorious holiday as a reason to do so. I will be in that area this weekend, at the Renegade Craft Fair hopefully meeting Ms. Jesse Oleson, and I just may have to make a quick pit stop.

Brooklyn Beer Experiment
After that stop, I have to head on down to Gowanus and The Bell House. In case any of you forgot, this Sunday is the Brooklyn Beer Experiment. Tickets are still available, the $18 charge now includes a Smuttynose OR Brooklyn Brewery beer, and the list of judges is quite impressive. This is sure to be a scene. Get your tickets here.

ADDENDUM: Krispy Kreme on the LIRR concourse is most certainly participating as I picked up a blueberry cake on my way to work. And Joe's in GCT has raspberry, cashew, coconut creme, and jelly-filled!

hmmm, this post is almost weird because I love doughnut plan, i usually don't miss the renegade craft fair, and my friends have told me to check out that beer event (and one of my friends is submitting something in the beef with food category).

It's because we're both Cancers, we're on a whole other plane. I will be on the lookout for you, famous Marshmallow Fluff Cookbook author! I will be one of the crazies taking a massive amount of photos.

I wonder if there's a Krispy Kreme near me. I'm going to search the web.
