The humble French fry too often plays second fiddle on the dinner plate. Some other foodstuff is given top billing while the fries are left to linger after the "and." Burger and fries. Milkshake and fries. Poutine? Gravy, cheese, and fries. But that all changes on Friday, July 13, because it's National French Fry Day.
It's time for those fried starch sticks to take center stage. Many restaurants -- McDonald's, Wendy's, Dunkin' Donuts, among others -- are offering free or cheap fries to help you celebrate the day in the traditional manner, which involves a pile of napkins, a salt shaker hat, a roll of Tums, and a massive pile of fries. Oh, and probably some ketchup.
Here are all the places you can go to indulge today after you get your Friday the 13th tattoo.
