Got milk? Got doughnuts?

How do you celebrate the passage of a nearly $19 billion budget? How about with a half-gallon of ice-cold milk and a couple dozen doughnuts?

This afternoon state legislators will gather at the North portico of the legislative building to compete in the annual milk-chugging contest. The event is designed to celebrate dairy month and raise awareness about North Carolina’s multi-million dollar dairy industry.

Over at the Governor’s mansion, Gov. Bev Perdue will accept delivery of one of the first public batches of Cheerwine-cream filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Perdue will be joined by Cheerwine President Cliff Ritchie and Krispy Kreme vice president Brad Wall in celebrating the two iconic N.C. brands.

Don’t be surprised if the Governor has a bit of a sugar buzz when she signs the 2010-11 state  budget later today.

(Note for doughnut-lovers, the limited edition, glazed-delicacy will arrive in grocery stores on Thursday.)
