Consider this a friendly PSA from Cowtown Eats. Doughbot will close for good whenever they run out of donuts on Sunday, Aug. 3.
And don't dilly dally. If you follow them on Twitter, you know they're usually out of donuts by about 10 a.m. each day.
I pinged them on Tuesday to see if they had anything special planned for their final weekend. Co-owner Bryan told me, "I think this week we are going to just try to make as many as we can and try to cycle through some flavors one last time. We are going to try to go as long as we can on Sunday."
I've been stopping by once a week since they announced they were closing. Last week, I loved their pink lemonade donut, an occasional special flavor.
I'm going to try to step up my game and eat there every day I can until Sunday to get my final fix. If you can, I recommend that you hit them up one last time to get your fill and pay your final respects.
Doughbot is located (until Sunday) at 2226 10th St, and can be found online at http://doughbotdonuts.com/.

State craft brewers fear drought could alter business, and the beer - When Lagunitas Brewing Co. fills its beer bottles, Northern California's Russian River provides the main ingredient. Lagunitas has become one of the fastest-growing stars of California's booming craft beer scene. But the Russian River is shrinking after three years of punishing drought. "We are at the maximum growth threshold here in California because of water," said Leon Sharyon, chief financial officer for Lagunitas, which uses nearly 2 million gallons of river water a year at its Petaluma brewery.

Pricey farm-to-fork dining vs feeding the wider community - Now’s the time of year when we see a glut of pricey farm dinners that most humble farmers could never afford. Sacramentans have shown there’s an appetite for exclusive farm-to-fork dinners, but that demand can vary widely, and filling seats isn’t always a cinch. Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
