April, Do it with the Doughnut!

February 19, 2010 at 9:19 am | Posted in Around Boston | 7 Comments

I actually yelled that in a crowd of people yesterday, and it wasn’t (too) weird! You see, one of our favorite chains turned 60 years young, and as up-and-coming bloggers, we were invited to its birthday celebration! When I say “invited” I mean that it was a public, no-invitation-needed event. Not the point.  

Anyway, April and I never miss a party with the promise of freebies, so we grabbed RWC and headed to Boston’s Copley Square to celebrate Dunkin’ Donuts’ birthday.  

I’ll be honest with you: the shindig did not disappoint. We partied with giant walking coffees who may or may not have man-handled (coffee-cup-handled?) April and RWC… simultaneously,

played pin the tail on the donkey (after which, a still-blindfolded April yelled “In your face” to passersby instead of Sarah),

sampled the new mocha coffee,  


got pockets full of candy, posed with a big ol’ doughnut – hence my cry to do it (aka pose) with the doughnut,  

Doing it with the doughnut!

and even got free Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards.  

The only negative was that they ran out of plates and utensils for the huge doughnut-shaped cake.  

What was left of the cake...

Contrary to popular opinion, we Wilderrols can exercise self-control and didn’t join our fellow revelers in just grabbing hunks o’ cake and shoving them down our throats.  

And to top it all off, we didn’t get lost en route! Now that’s a lunch break.

  1. OMG Boston is SO MUCH MORE FUN than Buffalo!!!! Although our hockey team rocks out way more! There’s just so much to do and see!

    • Adventures can be had in any city. You just have to keep your eyes open. Although sometimes it’s all about the people joining you on said adventure-finding mission!

      • Don’t discount Other Sister’s thought on this! She should probably come to Boston soon and see for herself how much fun the city – and we – can be! ~Sarah

  2. I believe I have said it before, but I will say it again, there is never a dull moment in the life of the Wilderrol’s! A walk in the park is never just “A walk in the park”!

  3. the coffee looks like a crayon

    • Yes, Fred, that coffee DOES look like a crayon!

  4. Do it with the Doughnut sounds like a new type of dance move. How is it done, April?
