Voodoo Doughnut has been soft opening sporadically on Dirty Sixth throughout October, leading up to its grand opening on Saturday, October 31. The Halloween party will include a doughnut eating contest. The shop created a tribute to football with the Austin-specific doughnut: the Longhorn Creme.
The food service launched in August, delivering rotating lunchtime meals from Austin restaurants, including East Side King, Swift’s Attic, Bribery Bakery, and others. It is already available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and recently, Houston.
