On June 1, participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide will offer guests a free donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage. 

National Donut Day, celebrated on the first Friday of June each year, was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.

Drop By Dunkin' Donuts in February for Heart-Shaped Donuts

I stopped by my local Dunkin' Donuts the other day and saw they had a bevy of pretty, heart-shaped donuts. Well, duh! It’s February and Valentine’s Day is around the corner which means the Cupid’s Choice Donut has returned to Dunkin' Donuts. New this year is the Chocolate Heart Donut.

Cupid's Choice is super pretty – the heart-shaped donut is topped with strawberry icing donned with pink, white and red heart-shaped sprinkles and filled with Bavarian Kreme. The Chocolate Heart Donut is a chocolate frosted heart-shaped donut with vanilla buttercreme filling, topped with chocolate chips. Mmm, mmm.

These sweets are a perfect way to show you affection for your spouse, family member, significant other, friend or co-worker.What the heck, you deserve something yummy, pick one up for yourself.

Lucky you, Tallahassee! You have two Dunkin' Donuts options and be sure to visit before the end of February for your heart-shaped donuts!

Tallahassee Walking Tour eBook Free on Smashwords until Feb. 1, 2012

The best way I enjoy discovering a city is by foot because you can literally find the nooks and crannies making the heart and soul of a destination. Available on Smashwords is a self-guided Tallahassee walking tour eBook available for 99 cents. 

From the LOOK UP, AMERICA! Series, the Look Up, Tallahassee! Walking tour reviews the capital city's history since the 1800s then begins the walking tour at the Old Florida State Capitol.

With easy to follow walking instructions, there are 25 points of interest and the tour ends where it began. Each point of interest contains a historical nugget of information which is great when you need to break the ice at your next networking event or show off your Cliff Clavin-like knowledge.

Look Up, Tallahassee! is written by Doug Geblert who's penned more than 300 walking tours. The guide would be a tad better with a map for people like me – I’m a visual person - but downtown Tallahassee is pretty easy to navigate without one.

Use Look Up, Tallahassee! to find new places to photograph or to educate yourself about Florida’s Capital City. This tour is also found in the book LOOK UP, FLORIDA!

At 99 cents, this self-guided Tallahassee walking tour is an awesome deal.

Here's something special for you, now through February 1, 2012, get Look Up, Tallahassee! FREE by using coupon code  YP37V at

She Would Say Whaaat? "Say Anything" by North Star Games, A Fab Party Game

Back in my day, games like Pictionary, Balderdash and Boggle ruled when it came for party time and social gatherings. Those are still classics but there's a new generation of board games out there that don't require batteries or electricity (yeah, I said it, BOARD games, not electronic). North Star Games is creating smart, clever and entertaining games appropriate for families and friends.

Honestly, I was a little skeptical if a game not produced by toy making machines such as Hasbro or Milton Bradley would be any good but after putting North Star Games' "Say Anything," I can in good faith say this game is FUN!

How to Play Say Anything
Basically, a question is read by one player (the judge) and the other players write down what they think the judge would say. Then, the judge secretly selects their favorite response while everyone votes with the two chips they have on the answer they believe the judge will choose. Points are awarded for the person who has the response the judge selected and to those who also selected it.

It's really not that complicated and as you can imagine, as the night progresses and players get a little punchy, the sillier the responses.

Why Say Anything?
Say Anything will get people talking pretty quickly after the game begins and that's what makes a party, right? It's also an opportunity to learn about your friends, family members and potential love interests *wink*wink*.

It's also a quality game and has won several awards. It's available from Barnes & Noble, Toys "R" Us and Target.

Find North Star Games on Facebook and between now and Monday, Nov. 21, 2011,check out Say Anything and enter to win an iPad.

Also, be sure to check out this video on how to play "Say Anything."


Disclosure: North Star Games sent me games to review but opinions are my own.
