National Donut Day at MN History Center (?!)

  • MInnesota Histoy Center 345 West Kellogg Boulevard Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Wait. Whaat?! On National Donut Day, enjoy free donuts, live music, WW1 storytelling by humorist Kevin Kling (never miss an opprtunity to see Kevin Kling) and costumed reenactors with admission to the History Center's WW1 America exhibit. During World War I, members of the Salvation Army (dubbed Donut Girls or Lassies) provided a priceless taste of home, warm donuts, to homesick servicemen on the front lines in France. The History Center also opens early on National Donut Day at 7 am instead of 10 am. This event was created in partnership with the local Salvation Army and YoYo Donuts and Coffee Bar. $12 Museum admission. $6 ages 5-17, under 4 free. Note the 7am start - you could even go before school and write them a late slip!

Only Grandmas could get away with donuts for breakfast, lunch and dinner (talk about making memories) - stop at Mojo Monkey Donuts, 1169 7th Street West (check your numbers as it is hard to see) on the way home - Chocolate Ganache with Pistachio, Mango Glaze with Organic Coconut, Apple Dumpling, Maple with Thick-cut Bacon...A Peanut Butter and Jelly donut counts as a sandwich, doesn't it?!
