The reality is, getting to try pretty much anything from Federal's new spot is definitely out of the question. At least for now. The rest of us, who weren't in line opening morning will have to wait for a hail storm to sneak in for a dozen.
But until then, there's at least one other upcoming doughnut-centric happening in the city, that could help to quench your hunger...and thirst.
This coming Tuesday, October 25, South Philadelphia's Devil's Den has teamed up with Krispy Kreme for a beer and donut pairing to benefit PAWS. Pairings are $10 each, $4 of which will go to charity. The pairing menu will be available all day, from 11am - 2am, but reservations are being recommended...just in case. You wouldn't them to run out of donuts, now would you??
On the beer and brews menu:
Original Glazed Doughnut & PBC's Joe Porter
Cinnamon Bun Doughnut & Yard's Thomas Jefferson Ale
Pumpkin Spice Cake Doughnut & Weyerbacher's Verboten
Devil's Den 1148 S. 11th Street, Philadelphia, 19147 215.339.0855
Please note, the donut / doughnut spelling discrepancy...Federal Donuts / Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
