Where are you bringing your donuts from?

As the Donut Summit approaches (June 13th!  Super soon!), we are turning to you, dear readers, for help!  We want to make sure that a fairly comprehensive range of LA’s donut shops are represented at the summit, so, if you’re coming, please comment below and let us know where you’re planning to bring your donuts from!

Below the jump is our working list of local donutteries:  those with an asterisk beside them have been claimed by Metrobloggers, but all of the rest are fair game!  And we are well aware that this list is currently far from complete, so if your favorite donut haunt isn’t on the list, that’s a-ok:  just comment below and let us know which local donut purveyor you want to add to the list!

And if you need remindin’, you can find out more about the Donut Summit and how it will work here.  You can also follow@donutsummit on Twitter, join our facebook page, or visit us at home at LA Metblogs!

Our donuts bring all the boys to the yard

What happens when you put three Metblogging ladies in a room with a few dozen donuts and a photographer?  Well, let’s just say that many, many donuts were harmed in the making of this photo:

So, yeah.  The Donut Summit is clearly going to be the social event of the season.  The deets, in case you’ve missed them:

When?  Sunday, June 13, 1pm

Where?  Griffith Park Picnic Area near Vermont, under our GIANT DONUT signs.

Price of admission: Between one to 12 donuts, either sourced at your fave donut shop OR, yes, you CAN make your own. Label box or bag with the name of the donut maker.

Donuts will be labeled by shop of origin and voted on by category, and one lucky donut shop will walk away with the crown and scepter of LOS ANGELES DONUT KING/QUEEN, regardless of whether or not that really is the name of his/her store.

And as if that weren’t enough, there will be games, goodies, limited edition artist t-shirts (for a donation) and more greasy, carby, sugar-coated fun than you can shake a stick at.
