Where to Find Free Donuts on Wednesday
We love a good freebie just as much as you do. And we also love our donuts. So it's with great pleasure that we deliver some happy news: Plan Check Kitchen + Bar is giving away free donuts in honor of their one year anniversary.
On Wednesday, February 20th, during normal business hours, folks who visit Plan Check will get a gratis order of Chef Ernesto Uchimura’s famous cruller donuts.
The restaurant in Little Osaka has gotten some good reviews since its opening last year, including one on this very site. Uchimura brought his Asian-influenced gastropub fare and friendly, neighborhood vibes to an area that had plenty of great noodle shops, but no real social house to speak of.
It's no wonder it's been such a success, with a formerUmami Burger corporate chef and cocktails designed by Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix of several of the city’s best cocktail bars: La Descarga, Harvard and Stone, and Black Market Liquor Bar.
What better to go with your donut than a well-crafted cocktail? Nada. That's what.
