Free donuts! The folks at Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia note that Friday, June 5 is National Donut Day. They've got a handy list of doughnut giveaways for those who wish to celebrate. Chocolate sprinkles please!

Wayan Vota of one of our favorite local blogs, Greater Greater Washington, offers a parking rave (as oppose to rant) after using the District's new pay by phone parking system. We love the title, "Heaven in the Hell of DC Parking."
