A slew of spots offer free meals to current and former soldiers on Veterans Day, including T.G.I. Friday's, Applebee's, Golden Corral, Olive Garden, and Denny's (where the deal is specifically all-you-can-eat pancakes). Come November 11th, and enjoy your free food salute.
Not a member of the armed forces, but really love getting up at 3:00am to fight strangers for toasters? Fred Meyer gives out free coffee and donuts to Black Friday shoppers. Make sure to mark down the fourth Friday of the month accordingly.
Commemorate National Cookie Day on December 4th at the place that toasts everything, including the baked goods, Quiznos. Free cookies await, but keep an eye out for those terrifying "spongmonkeys".
Finally, ring in the booziest holiday of the bunch, Repeal Day. Every December 5th, bars across the country celebrate the end of Prohibition with deals ranging from nickel beers to free apps. Make sure to check with your local bars closer to the date.
