It's official: Everyone in America gets free tacos from Taco Bell on Thursday, thanks to baseball. As expected, the fast food chain's annual "Steal a Base, Steal a Taco" free food giveaway was triggered by the first stolen base of the 2018 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox. We repeat: Free tacos at Taco Bell. For everyone. Today.
Sure, the Boston Red Sox ended up winning World Series, but a free taco feeding frenzy is something everyone can get excited about, regardless of team affiliation. Literally everyone is a winner, if you think about it.
When and where to get free tacos
Taco Bell is promising a free Doritos Locos Taco to everyone in the United States. More specifically, T-Bell locations all across the country that are participating in the nationwide tacopalooza will give you one Doritos Locos Taco for literally zero money between 2pm and 6pm (local time) on Thursday, November 1. All you have to do is line up, extend your hand, take your free taco, and eat said free taco. It's that simple. Though it probably wouldn't hurt to throw some Fire Sauce on it first -- just to be safe.
