Rocky Horror, National Donut Day and more

Crazy thanks to our new friends at Bay Area NBC affiliate, KNTV 11. Psycho Donuts was psyched to be featured on Today in the Bay, with hosts Laura Cannon-Garcia and Brent Cannon. Filming took place at The Winchester Mystery House on Friday the 13th, and the KNTV team was among the first to taste our Friday the 13th-inspired donut creation - The JasoNut.

Psycho love also goes out to local comedian and 106.5FM DJ, Sandy Stec. Sandy's latest comedic rant revolves around a burning desire to Get The F&*% Outta Milpitas. Along the way, Sandy asked us to create a a donut that exudes Milpitas... and the fun began. Here's a video behind the creation of our Milpitas-inspired donut, "Miso Honey." This donut is not yet available at Psycho Donuts - not until Sandy succeeds in her Milpitas escape!

It's almost that time (warp) again. Join us at Psycho San Jose and The Camera 3 Cult Series on Saturday, May 28 for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with live cast, Barely Legal. There's nothing like Rocky Horror with a side-order of Psycho. Doors open at 11:00pm, giving you plenty of time to buy our Rocky-inspired donut, Janet's Panties!

National Donut Day is the first Friday in June. This year we will continue some insane traditions and add some new ones. Here's the line-up for National Donut Day weekend!

Friday, June 3. This is the "official" National Donut Day. We'll kick it off in psycho pstyle with a crazy Wine and Donut Pairing event at J. Lohr Winery in San Jose. Last time we paired Psycho Donuts with wine, it was national news. Here's your chance to taste some great wine in the South Bay, along with custom paired Psycho Ballz for each hand-picked wine. Learn more about this free event, and how to RSVP to ensure your space! Mark your crazy calendar for wine and donuts at J. Lohr winery; Friday June 3, from 4:00 - 7:00pm. Donations encouraged, which will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.

Saturday, June 4. National Donut Day morphs into National Donut Weekend. Join us for our annual National Donut Day Event at Psycho Donuts Campbell. We begin with Psycho Karaoke in the padded cell at 10:00am, led by everyone's favorite karaoketeer, Bruce Rogers of Korkaraoke. And at 1:00pm - donut miss it!! It's our 2nd Annual Donut Pizza Eating Competition, featuring last year's champion Peter Shepherd - defending his championship title. But Peter has some stiff competition from the likes of Raymond, Linda, and Amytha. Come join the fun - out in front of Psycho Campbell - and cheer on our crazy contestants, as they each wolf down a 14" donut pizza in less than 8 minutes! Join us for all the fun, along with our special guest host, Jeff Kramer of ComedySportz.

All of this and some amazing new donuts on the Psycho drawing board. Stay tuned for donut details coming soon!
