Psushi Overtakes FanimeCon and National Donut Day

It's official. FanimeCon is the craziest convention on the planet. Which is probably why Psycho San Jose was the site of a mass Fanime Pilgrimage. Thousands of fun, costumed attendees descended upon Psycho Donuts last weekend to sample our Psycho Psushi. We made enough for about 500, but we didn't anticipate 5,000! Needless to say, the Psycho kitchen went insane trying to satiate the endless Psycho Psushi hysteria. Psycho apologies to those of you who didn't get any Psushi. We will be ready for you next year!

Psycho Psushi was a big hit in the Fanime Blogosphere and beyond. TrendHunter wrote about our unusual Japanese donut bento. And so did our good friend, Sal Pizarro at The San J
ose Mercury News. And an interesting side note - we just discovered a movie called Psycho Sushi!

Have you tried our Strawberry TacOnut yet? Whatcha waiting for?! Get one throughout the month of June.

This donut has a personality disorder, and thinks of itself as a glazed taco shell. Fresh strawberries in a light glaze are stuffed inside, along with homemade vanilla butter cream.

And now... lets change the topic from donuts to National Donut Day (we can converse about anything, as long as it's donuts)! Dick Sparrer in the Los Gatos Weekly Times says, "...it's my patriotic duty to eat a donut on Saturday... maybe two." We'll be celebrating National Donut Day in pstyle this weekend, starting with:

J. Lohr Winery
Friday, June 3; 4pm - 7pm

Once you pair J. Lohr wines with Psycho Donuts, you'll neve
r drink wine again without a psycho in your hand. We're not simply sending over a bunch of Headbangers and Crazy Face donuts. We're systematically creating 4 custom Psycho Ballz which complement 4 hand-picked J. Lohr wines, respectively.

Bring some friends, and join us for what Sal Pizarro of The Merc describes as an 'unusual pairing.' Advance RSVP strongly encouraged. Optional donations accepted, benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank.

At Psycho Donuts, National Donut Day is really National Donut Weekend. Because the National Donut Day festivities carry in Saturday too. Join us for:

National Donut Day Karaoke and Donut Eating Contest
Saturday June 4, 10am - 2pm
Psycho Donuts Campbell

Starting at 10am on Saturday, join us for another episode of Psycho Karaoke in the padded cell, led by our fearless karaoke ringmaster, Bruce Rogers of Kor Karaoke. Nothing gets your
day going like a crazy donut combined with insane karaoke. Talk about unusual pairings...

And then at 1pm, it's the spectacle you've been waiting for! It's Psycho Donuts 2nd Annual Donut Pizza Eating Competition, with Guest Host Jeff Kramer of ComedySportz. Five contestants, including last years champion Peter Shepherd, will attempt to win the glory as Psycho Donut King (or Queen) for 2011, along with a handful of Psycho Donuts prizes.

Donut miss out! Join us for Psycho Donut and Wine Pairing Friday night, and for all the insane National Donut Day fun on Saturday. Only at Psycho Donuts.
