This week, Knaus Berry Farm will reopen for season, the Salty Donut and UberEats will offer on-demand Halloween doughnuts, Seed Food & Wine Week will kick off, and Burgerlicious will return.
Salty Donut and UberEats Halloween Collab. Monday, October 30, at 10 a.m, Halloween comes early at the Salty Donut with UberEats deliveries of holiday-themed doughnut boxes. The four-packs are expected to sell out quickly, so grab your phone and open the UberEats app. The special will appear on the app's main screen and on Salty's company page. Uber will charge $15 to your credit card, and a limited-edition, Halloween-inspired box of doughnuts will appear at your location within five to 15 minutes. If you're not one of 500 customers who snag a Halloween box, the Salty Donut will offer an in-store chef's special doughnut Tuesday, October 31, which will be made with a charcoal-dyed brioche. The Salty Donut, 50 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-925-8126; saltydonut.com.
