Hey, Joe...

We don't have to explain the magical effect free food has on the human mind. Promise sandwiches, no matter how mediocre, and the accounting meeting is going to be that much more well attended.

Otherwise clear-thinking people will wait in line for an hour for a free burrito or a free cone or any other thing that costs less than 10 dollars. When time literally is money, it's a difficult equation to figure out, but hey, humans are a complicated sort. So, is your name Joe? Then today is your lucky day.

Two burgers, two beers, $24. (Or, your math is correct, one and one for $12)

There's nothing more American than demanding something for free because it's your birthday. It doesn't matter how old you get, you're inevitably going to ask (actually you're going to put your spouse up to it), "Do I get anything for my birthday?!"

Firelake Grill is doing something so completely un-American on its birthday, it's practically communist. They're giving stuff away instead!

Homeland security might want to get on this one.

Load up a child, any child, and head to lunch.

So it's cold enough that Minneapolis schools are closed for the day (though not St. Paul schools, you hardy lot!) and you want to take this opportunity to put on all the clothes in your closet and never leave the woolly cocoon of your bed. Besides, your car probably wouldn't start anyway.

But if you happen to be out and about, and you happen to have a young Minneapolitan in tow, Blue Plate Restaurant Group is offering free food to any school-sprung tot with a paying grown-up.
