Payday can't come soon enough, right? Well, we're looking out for you. Wednesday, April 29, happens to have two different free and nearly-free events where you can get your grub on.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., carry-out customers at any Phoenix-area Domino's pizza will get a free order of their new Domino's BreadBowl Pasta. It's pretty much just what you'd imagine -- pasta baked right into a bread bowl. Anyway, it won't cost you a cent.
Later, from 5 to 10 p.m., Baskin-Robbins is doing its third annual 31 Cent Scoop Night. This is happening at every one of the Baskin-Robbins locations in the country, so it shouldn't be too hard to track one down. Depending on which one you visit, there might be local firefighters on hand to scoop up ice cream and collect donations for the National Volunteer Fire Council. Baskin-Robbins has already committed to a $100,000 donation.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
