This is the one that's going to push people who believe there are too many made-up holidays over the edge. It's been around for a while, but it's a weird one. Saturday, June 8 is National Best Friends Day

It's a day where we honor the brave best friends around the world or something. And then we go to restaurants that have BOGO deals because, you know, one for me and one for you. Though, it's also National RosĂ© Day because sometimes you just have to double up. But these are a couple of holidays that work well together. When you're done eating BOGO sandwiches, go get a bottle of wine and continue to hang with your best friend like you may or may not do on any given Saturday anyhow. 

Here are the best restaurant deals you'll find for National Best Friend's Day with a couple National RosĂ© offers thrown in for good measure.
