It's National Donut Day! Glazed Gourmet Doughnuts on King Street gave away a free donut to their first 30 customers this morning, so you missed that, but they haven't sold out yet. Expecting to sell over 1000 donuts before the close of business today, Glazed owner Allison Smith has been a little surprised by the turnout so far. "I had no idea that so many random people off the street would know about this day, but it's been great for us," says Smith. Now that Smith knows how seriously Charlestonians take this awesome day of honoring dough with a hole in it, she will be ready for next year.
