October Events Image

The month of October is without question best-known for being the month in which Halloween takes place. But did you know that it is also Adopt a Shelter Dog Month? There is nothing better than a rescue dog, so if you are looking for a puppy, it's definitely the way to go. Not a dog person? It's also Eat A Country Ham Month. So there you go.

When you're not playing with your new dog or eating a country ham, here are some events taking place in October:


Weird Al Yankovic: Weird Al will be bringing his parody tunes to the stage this month, beginning his latest tour on October 4 in Anaheim, CA.

  • Guns N' Roses kick off their tour on October 31.
  • Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young all continue their respective tours throughout the month.

For those of you out there that did not know, today is National Donut Day! A day to celebrate one of the most delicious confections ever created. Actually, the date has a little more history than that. The holiday dates back to 1938 and was created by the Salvation Army to honor women who handed out donuts on the front lines of World War I. Seriously. Click here to read about it.

Nowadays, National Donut Day is an excuse to partake in the wonderful treat. I got mine through the free donut promotion from Dunkin' Donuts. Yummy.

I also thought this would be a good time to rank my Top 5 favorite donuts. Let me know if you agree/disagree in the comments below.

#5 - Jelly Donut

The jelly-filled donut is one of the most delicious, albeit messy, donuts out there. In fact, its messiness is what ultimately dropped it down this list. I challenge anyone to eat a jelly donut without getting powdered sugar or jelly all over their clothing. It's almost guaranteed to happen to me, but it's a risk worth taking.

#4 - French Cruller

There is no classier way to eat a donut than eating a french cruller. So light and airy, and oh-so-delicious. Almost makes you feel like you are better than the person next you...almost.

#3 - Sprinkled Donut

The rainbow sprinkled donut is a feast for the eyes. Whenever someone opens the box of donuts, your eyes are immediately drawn to all the pretty colors. Nothing is more disappointing than when whoever made the donuts skimps on the sprinkles. Come on, donut man, give the people what they want! MORE SPRINKLES!

#2 - Boston Creme Donut

The Boston creme donut is a donut that is definitely not for everyone. But for those of us who love them, the combination of custard and chocolate is almost unbeatable. Boston creme is undeniably the king of the filled donuts.

#1 - Glazed Donut

Does it get any more classic than the glazed donut? Just sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth and light enough that you could polish off a half dozen without blinking. I have yet to find someone who does not like a glazed donut, and if you know someone, immediately give them a stern look and eat a glazed donut right in their face.

Happy National Donut Day! Now go stuff your faces! March live events preview
