A Pizookie day isn't a rejected Sesame Street character. It's a small-pizza-sized cookie at popular chain BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, and they want to give you a free one. Like, right now. For today, June 17, is Pizookie Day, and that means free, gigantic, chocolate-chunk cookies. To get in on the deal, just download their app and request your free Pizookie through the Dine-In Order Ahead feature. That does mean you have to sit in the restaurant and eat your cookie pie like a civilized person, not silently in your parked car with "Almost Paradise" playing. But when there are free giant cookies involved, the Footloose soundtrack can wait.
