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.).
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.
