It’s the donut event of the decade! Come and help us name, once and for all, Los Angeles’ number one awesomest donut!
The mad geniuses at Metblogs, who brought you last year’s Hot Dog Death March are at it again – this time, slinging the Spudnuts. The Winchell’s. The fresh-fruit-filleds from Donut Man in Glendora, downtown’s gourmet vegan donuts, Bob’s famed fritters from the Farmer’s Market—there’ve even been threats of burgers with donuts for buns. THE HORROR!
Sunday, June 13th at 1pm, we will descend like hypoglycemic locusts upon Griffith Park, at the picnic area near the Vermont entrance, to find a like-minded rabble of donut lovers, games, and a donut competition. The price of admission? Your party must arrive with your favorite donuts. Krispy Kreme will not be accepted. (Donut freak out, we’ve got the coffee.) Costumes are encouraged.
When: Sunday, June 13, 1pm
Where: Griffith Park Picnic Area near Vermont – Look for the GIANT DONUT signs. We’ll be setting up in one of the picnic areas near the intersection of Vermont Ave and Commonwealth Canyon Drive, just south of the Greek Theatre.
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.
What: Donuts will be labeled by shop of origin and voted on by category: Best old-fashioned; best filled; best vegan; best fritter; best glazed; best maple; weirdest; most visually attractive; and, if I have my way, most horrifyingly unhealthy-looking. 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 there will be games, goodies, limited edition artist t-shirts (for a donation) and sheer deep-fried, sugar-glazed insanity!
