Batting and bats? Gloves and ghosts? Sunshine in the stadium and moonlight on a spooky street?
The final days of October can and do hold the bewitching and plentiful charms both a thrilling baseball showdown and the promise of Halloween high jinks.
So how can a pair of pastry-perfect shops, locally beloved places that are famous for their frosting-covered confections, celebrate both the action on the diamond and the ghoulful glee of the season, all at the same time?
By baking not one but a few different special doughnuts that are well-themed to the moment.
And those treats o' the tenth month are now in the cases at both Primo's Donuts locations.
The Dodgers doughnut is $3, and you bet, there's some sweet "stitching" on top of the goodie, as well as lots of LA love, written in pure blue, of course.
There are two tempting ways to go with your Dodgers doughnut: plain or filled with jelly.
The Halloween doughnuts? You can find cake versions, for $2.75, or raise, for three bucks, and there are a few fanciful designs to choose from, with most involving orange and black (and one that sorts a super-cute spiderweb).
