You probably didn't know that it's National Cream-Filled Donut Day. It is certainly not a widely celebrated holiday. In fact, it's probably not celebrated anywhere with the possible exception of the ancestral home of Dunkin' Donuts, Quincy, Massachusetts.
In New York we can't celebrate it because I can't think of one cream-filled doughnut worth celebrating with the exception of Bouchon Bakery's Boston Cream-filled doughnut, which it is not even currently making. BB is making an incredible lemon curd doughnut tomorrow and Sunday, but I have checked with the Cream-filled Donut Council, and it has ruled that a lemon curd-filled doughnut is not in the cream-filled doughnut family.
So go to Bouchon Bakery tomorrow or Sunday, order a delicious lemon curd-filled donut, and ask when the Boston Cream donut is coming back. Even Thomas Keller might respond to public pressure.
