National Donut Day is coming this Friday, June 5!

Save your diet cheat day for this Friday because National Donut Day comes with some delicious freebies. Whether you call them donuts or doughnuts channel your inner Homer Simpson and take a bite out of these sweet deals.
Established in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. National Donut Day gained increased popularity over the past decade in large part thanks to the cross promotions from major international chains like Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme. You can expect the event to attract huge crowds and why not when the donuts are free. 
I put together a list of deals and locations that New Yorkers and Brooklynites shouldn’t miss. 


2 Penn Plaza – Amtrak Level
New York, NY
Free donut of any variety no purchase necessary at participating locations. With only one NYC location this will be a very very crowded place.
Madison Square Park (Southwest Corner)
New York, NY
7:00am – 1:00pm
Free donuts and coffee while supplies last. 40,000 free donuts, including the brand new Rich Frosted Sprinkled Patriotic Donut in honor of the military men and women serving our country.
THE TUSCAN GUN in partnership with Lavazza
199 Windsor Place
Brooklyn, NY
9:30am – 12:30pm
This is a very fun and exciting offer from this brand new Italian cafe. Chef Gabriele Corcos will be serving free espresso flavored donut bites along with a selection of Lavazza beverages (espresso, espresso macchiato, espresso nuvola, cappuccino, caffe latte). Corcos, who is also a host of popular Cooking Channel show “Extra Virgin” will be on hand personally along with his wife and co-host, actress Debi Mazar. This is a free event but you should RSVP with Evenbrite here
Check site for participating NYC locations
Complimentary donut of any variety with a purchase of any beverage. While not exactly free it is still a nice deal and should be a less crowded alternative thanks to the huge amount of NYC locations.
379 Grand St. (Between Essex and Norfolk)
New York, NY
Complimentary Carnival Sprinkles mini cake donuts with every purchase, while supplies last. Made fresh daily and using only natural ingredients this may be the healthiest donut option (if there is such a thing). Also available at their other locations in Brooklyn and Queens. 
252 East 51 St.
New York, NY
4:00pm – 7:00pm
Cap off your donut day festivities with Rogue Ales Brewery. James Jennings will be on hand giving out samples and talking about the beer while chef Mark will be frying up yummy donut holes for all who attend.
If you know of any other participating locations please feel free to share in the comments section. Happy Donuts Day!
