Free: Donut from Dunkin Donuts - 6/7

6/04/2013 11:15:00 PM 0 Responses
My boss drinks tea from Dunkin' Donuts literally every morning.  On his way in, without fail, he gets his tea.  Coming up on Friday, he may as well get a donut with his tea ... (and then give me the donut).

Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee, donuts and baked goods, today announced that it will be honoring National Donut Day, celebrated this year on Friday, June 7, with a sweet offer to make the holiday extra special and fun. On June 7, participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide will offer guests a free donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage. This special donut offer is also available to Dunkin’ Donuts guests in 31 countries across the globe, marking the brand’s first-ever worldwide donut celebration. 
            Donut lovers have other reasons to look forward to June at Dunkin’ Donuts, as the brand today also unveiled new Summer Fruit Donuts to celebrate the season.  Dunkin’ Donuts’ new Summer Fruit Donuts are available in two fun fruit flavors: Lemonade, featuring a yeast shell filled with lemon flavored filling, frosted with white icing, and topped with lemonade bark; and Key Lime, featuring a yeast shell, filled with key lime flavored filling, frosted with white icing and finished with a graham cracker topping. Both new donuts are available through August at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide, beginning June 3.

Oyster Monday @ The Barking Crab - 6/3

6/02/2013 11:35:00 PM 0 Responses
Someone emailed me last week asking why I don't post many reviews anymore, or personal anecdotes about me being out and about.  And instead just post events that get sent to me. 

First off, apologies for shifting the blog in that direction.  But, the 'ol day job (which i switched into about two years ago) has been getting increasingly time consuming.  It leaves me little time to get out there and really do any field reporting, let alone get thru the 300-400 emails I get each day.

As many of you know, Bostonist shut down about a year and a half ago.  They were a lot more 'business' oriented than I am - and probably realized they couldn't make enough money to sustain it as a business.  For me this has been a hobby, one that I started six years ago.  I'm going to try to do the best that I can to keep things going.

Enough whining, let's go get some oysters!
