Psychics, Dirty Turtles, Jazz, Oldies, and Alternative

Psychic at Psycho? Hey, that has a ring to it; what a great excuse for a crazy event! Plan ahead and come to Psychic@Psycho, with renowned Bay Area psychic, Irma Slage! Irma is a psychic with psycho credentials - author, lecturer, counselor, and more. Irma has documented cases of removing ghosts from unwanted buildings and has appeared on the local news many times ("Who ya gonna call?"). Irma's crazy credentials qualify her to give psychic readings in the Psycho Padded Cell! Just $10 for a six minute psychic reading! Come check it out:

Irma Slage
Saturday, August 13
Psycho Campbell: 10am - noon
Psycho San Jose: 8pm - 10pm

Psycho Donuts is now selling Dirty Turtles. No, we haven't launched Psycho Pet Pstore... not yet. And our Dirty Turtle is
tastier than the one pictured stage right.

The Psycho Dirty Turtle is a chocolate cake donut, topped with cheesecake icing, Oreo dust, and a caramel drizzle. Get one at both Psycho locations - until the turtle returns to the swamp.

Psycho is on the radio! Have you discovered SaveAlternative Radio?
Chief Psycho is always looking for a new source of alternative music - ever since his favorite alternative FM station has gone... Mandarin? SaveAlternative plays great music along with some crazy psycho banter on Monday nights from 6:00 - 7:00pm. This is because Psycho Nurse DJ's are on the SaveAlternative airwaves each Monday night. Tune in for some great music, and get to know your Psycho nurses!

And speaking of nurses, it was full moon mayhem last week. Nurse Kylie showed up at work as... a WereRabbit? and Nurses Stephanie and Nikki came to work as something sorta dead. We're still not sure quite what... See what the Psycho Girls come up with next full moon - Saturday, August 13 - in conjunction with Psychic@Psycho!

Each weekend, tune in to Beer Run Bobby's Oldies Show on 104.9FM. Bobby is always up to some kind of crazy prank; but more importantly, he is also giving away some Psycho Donuts on the air. Maybe you'll win some Psychos.
And pspeaking of Psychos and music, Psycho Donuts is a proud sponsor of The San Jose Jazz Festival. Come check out some great live jazz on August 12 - 14 at Cesar Chavez Park in Downtown San Jose. Look around for Psycho Pstaffers, and maybe even some free donuts.

And the Psycho music collaborations just donut stop! Nurse Dylan was invited to Montalvo Arts Center to check out Vertical Horizon and Kevin Cadogan of Third Eye Blind. Dylan spawned a traditional steampunk look, and was last seen partying with Vertical Horizon. Psycho thanks to our crazy friends at Montalvo for the invite! And that Motorola Razr? Just part of that retro steampunk costume, right Dylan?

The Fractured Fantasies of Martin Schwarz

We love our local artists at Psycho Donuts. We're looking forward to the return of local original art for a forthcoming Monster Show - in conjunction with our favorite season - Halloween!

We're equally fanatical about our Psycho Psummer Pseries of unusual art shows at Psycho
Campbell. As we wrap up our PsychoPop Show, we're excited about our new show, as we enter the realm of Psycho Psurrealism!

The Fractured Fantasies of Martin Schwartz
July 22 - Aug 18, 2011
Psycho Donuts Campbell

Martin Schwartz paints a canvas of surrealism with an Alpine twist; collage and imagination are used sparingly as a great sense of humor weaves it way throughout the prints of multiple styles in Fractured Fantasies.
Many phases of Martin Schwarz career are presented in this Psycho Art Pspectacle; the reworking of master pieces, images of surreal and haunti
ng dreams, and more.
Since 1967 Schwarz has shown internationally, though mainly in German and Switzerland, while in 1984 he
and HR Giger (of Alien fame) collaborated on works with apocalyptic themes, which were shown in Giger’s personal museum.

All of the prints are created and published by Schwarz, most are signed and numbered. This art show and sale is presented by Luxe+Demur and Psycho Donuts. The show is curated by Wallace Harper.

Psychic Wookie Monsters with Road Rash

What's with all the Star Wars pstuff at Psycho Donuts? We're excited about the One Man Star Wars Show at the San Jose Reperatory Theater! Darth Vader paid a visit to Psycho Donuts over the weekend, to promote the show, which is all abuzz on Twitter. Although it's hard to tell in the photo, Darth had a big 'ole grin going on behind that evil mask.


We'll be making Wookie Ballz all week long. For this very reason, don't expect any surprise visits from Chewbacca this week... Wookies are kinda like smart turkeys around Thanksgiving...


We'll also be making a full-sized Chewbacca in honor of the growly one himself. Starting Thursday July 14-17, stop by Psycho Donuts for Chewie Dough.

Chewie Dough is a triangular raised donut, topped with cinnamon, coconut, and a chocolate/vanilla artillery belt.

Discount for your Wookie Holler?!

Psycho Pspecial! Give us a Wookie Holler when you place your order (July 14-17), and the nurse will take 50 cents off your Chewie Dough. Practice your Wookie Holler before you come!

Raspberry Road Rash!

It's been months since Nurse Dylan invented a donut. Last time Dylan designed a donut, she created a media frenzy around her Lady Gaga-inspired donuts. This time she has created Raspberry Road Rash (a name coined by Facebook Fan Ann Stolzman). In a parallel universe, Raspberry Road Rash might also be known as Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. It's pseriously psatisfying. Starting with a chocolate cake donut,
Dylan chose to top it with a cheesecake icing, freeze-dried raspberries, and a chocolate/vanilla drizzle. The result is another press-worthy Dylan creation.

Deathly HallowNut!

How many Harry Potter movies can there possibly be? In honor of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Psycho Donuts will release the Deathly HallowNut. Get one at Psycho Donuts pstarting on Friday July 15 - 19.

Howl @ The Moon!

Nurse Stephanie loves to dress up. Maybe that's why she loves her job as a Psycho Nurse. On Friday night, July 15, she will go monster with the full moon on high. Stop by Psycho San Jose and see what kind of nursely monster she summons from beyond!


Speaking of summoning from beyond, plan ahead for Psychic@ Psycho! Irma Slage is the real deal! If you've seen The 6th Sense, let's just say that Irma can identify with that little boy. Irma will be providing psychic readings at Psycho Donuts (in the padded cell, of course) on Saturday August 13. Come for your psychic reading at Psycho Campbell (10am - noon) or at Psycho San Jose (8pm - 10pm). Stay tuned to this Psycho Blog or Like Us on Facebook. More details about Psychic@Psycho psoon.

Psycho Donuts was recently invited to Villa Montalvo for a Social Network Party and Smashmouth concert. Thanks to Nathan Zanon for the invite, and to all the new crazy friends we met at the concert, including Stephanie Le of Cinequest, Team San Jose, Artsopolis, and BarbRocks. We are insanely excited about future collaboration.

Smashing Mouths, Rosie Pearez, and Crazy Donut Cakes

Rosie Perez - er Pear'ez - is in the house! Have you tried our new Rosie Pear'ez? Do The Right Thing, and try one throughout July at Psycho Donuts! Rosie Pear'ez is a rose water-spiked vegan cake donut contraption, topped with a pear icing, and toasted pistacios. Chef Ron had to mix a blend of salted and unsalted pistacios in order to get the psycho flavor he was chasing after. The result is a Psycho Psavory Psensation! Watch for more Psycho Psavories in the near future. Donuts aren't just for sugar-fiends anymore!

Did you notice that now point
s to Psycho Donuts? What a concept, eh? No longer will you be presented with the out-of-fashion perspectives of Psycho naysayers - at the URL which we were destined to own!

Chief Psycho is smashing mouths! Or more accurately, he's been invited to the Smash Mouth concert at Villa Montalvo on Thursday night, July 7. Get tickets and join the crazy fun! Rumor has it that members of Smash Mouth will be ingesting large quantities of eggs prior to the show. Why? Who cares. But for the record, they should be eating Psycho Donuts instead... Congrats to Psycho Facebook Fan, Ramirez Cain - who won two tickets in our Smashmouth triva contest! Like us on Facebook and see every concert for free (and now this from our Psycho Lawyers: that statement is absolutely untrue).

With a common name like Pam Smith, who knew the girl could be a Psycho Wunderkind. Pam is our
Psycho Donut Cake Decorator (PDCD?). She is responsible for the creative concept and electrocution (execution?) of our recent 4th of July Donut Cake. This cake was built on spec and sold on EBAY (at a steal, we might add...) by savvy EBAY provocateur, Lorraine Mendoza. A custom Psycho donut cake to feed 50 people, for.... $46? Really? OMFG! Lorraine, I wanna go shopping with you! Want your own custom Psycho donut cake? We can do CrAzY pstuff... call (408) 320-8469, and schedule a Psycho Consultation. You might just land in a reality show...

And finally, although Psycho typically shies away from press opportunities (yeah, right), we were thrilled to be featured in this piece by
The Examiner, and in this great foodie review on Grub Crawl.
