It's October, and everything is coming up pumpkin spice.

You name it and food designers have added the fall seasoning to it. Think yogurt, margarine, soy milk, gum, English muffins, bagels, vodka, almonds, tea, lasagna noodles, marshmallows and, of course, coffee. You can thank Starbucks for kicking off pumpkin season each August by rolling out its Pumpkin Spice Latte. But here's a surprise: The coffee shop's most popular drink didn't have a speck of actual pumpkin in it until this year, when a pumpkin spice syrup was concocted with a dash of real pumpkin. The latte contains several pumps of the syrup, a shot or two of espresso, steamed milk and a whipped topping, if you like to gild the lily.

Owners of Amy's Donuts, 2704 E. Fountain Blvd., have stepped up the way to enjoy their glazed delights. They announced on Facebook that they will be open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays. Simultaneously, they announced the introduction of Malasadas, which are a Portuguese-style doughnut without a hole. They have a sugary, crispy crust enveloping a soft interior and are popular in Hawaii. Malasadas are best eaten freshly fried. For that reason, they are only available limited hours while supply lasts. Currently you can jump in line for them 2 p.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays and 2 to 7 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Three flavors are offered: plain, cinnamon sugar and custard-filled. Haupia (coconut pudding), guava, and mango

Johnny Nolan, owner of Southside Johnny's and Johnny's Navajo Hogan, just might be in line for some sort of historical society award. He has bought the historic Colorado Springs number three firehouse. And, finally, the tall brick building at 817 W. Colorado Ave., is getting the love it's been denied for years. He's calling it N3 Tap House.

"We want to keep the history of the building intact, paying homage to the firehouse that was the third one built in Colorado Springs in the 1900s," Nolan said.
