Stop what you’re doing, Miami. Today is National Doughnut Day.
The holiday, observed the first Friday of June each year, was created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor those who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
From Burger King’s Whopper Donut to free doughnuts at Velvet Creme and Honeybee to parties, giveaways, and limited-time flavors, here are this year’s best ways to celebrate.
Mojo Donuts. At its West Miami-Dade shop, Mojo Donuts will give away mugs, coupons, and swag bags to customers. With each purchase, guests can spin a raffle wheel to win additional prizes, such as free doughnuts for a week or month and half- or full-dozen boxes. Mojo’s pop-up location at the Wharf will host an all-day bash complete with a free doughnut with every RSVP, live music, cocktails, and a taste of Mojo’s newest doughnut, the mojito. Noon to 2 a.m. at the Wharf Miami, 114 SW North River Dr., Miami; 305-906-4000; wharfmiami.com. Admission is free with RSVP via eventbrite.com.
