Get Free Doughnuts Today in Madison Square Park


Grub tends not to observe National [Insert Food Here] Days (since they’re so frequently driven by marketing departments), but some days just demand attention, and today — National Doughnut Day — is one such time. Especially since Entenmann’s and the Salvation Army (who started the day way back in 1938) are offering free doughnuts and coffee from now until 3 p.m. in Madison Square Park. Also on hand will be a seven-foot-wide foam-and-plastic replica of Entenmann’s red-velvet crinkle-cut doughnut by the “King of Huge,” if that’s your thing. [Official release, Related]
