Ever had one of those fever dreams where you enter a donut-eating contest, win $2500 and meet one of the original Latino superstars Erik Estrada all at the same time? Well, tomorrow that dream can be made real. In honor of the release of CHiPs: The Complete First Season, Frank “Ponch” Poncarello will be hosting a donut-eating contest at Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood. A portable DVD player and a signed copy of the DVD are also up for grabs. There’s even talk of a massive donut sculpture so bring your cameras. Spend a few minutes reading the contest requirements here and be sure to arrive by 8:30. And pray that Kobayashi doesn’t show up.

And if that isn’t enough Estrada for you, come to West Hollywood later that night and get your new CHiPs DVD signed by the man himself. He’ll be at the Best Buy at 1015 North La Brea signing from 7 to 9 p.m. Once you’re done with that, it’s only a short drive to the Formosa Café for cocktails and dancing.
