It must be the alignment of the planets or something. Seems like all kinds of restaurants are coming out of the woodwork to offer freebies right now.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, four Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que trucks will be cruising the streets of south Scottsdale, offering a free barbecue sandwich, a coupon for free wings, and a bottle of BBQ sauce to anyone who flags them down.
Today's also free Baja fish taco day at any local Long John Silver's -- the offer is good for one taco per person, until 2:30 p.m.
Doubling up on National Hot Dog Month and National Ice Cream Month, all Wienerschnitzel locations are giving away free Original Chili Dogs or free small Tastee Freez ice cream cones from 5 to 8 p.m. tonight.
And this Friday, July 17, get free coffee drinks all day long (5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.) at the new location of Dutch Bros. Coffee in Tempe (3213 S. Mill Ave.).
