If anyone needed an excuse to scarf down a few glazed doughnut holes Friday, National Doughnut Day begged celebration. While dozens of shops offered free pastries on Friday, pastry chef Mariah Swan, at Grace Restaurant used the holiday to show off her doughnut skills. At Grace, doughnuts are treated as seriously as the sauteed scallops, carefully shaped into perfect globes and rings, painted with various delectable glazes, served with warm, rum-spiked milk, or paired with homemade ice cream.

Little Joy brought it home to a sold out crowd at the Troubadour on June 5. Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes) made it back from his recording session in time for the encore, which brought more shrieks from the already shrieking crowd. Warpaint opened and played in near darkness throughout their set. View more photos in Timothy Norris' "Little Joy @ the Troubadour" slideshow.
