Restaurants like Davio’s, which is bringing back a deal they had last year where, on any day that the mercury drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, you can go in and demand a free order of spring rolls. The Davio’s “Cold Weather Special” is available during Monday–Friday, 11:30am–2:30pm and 5:00pm–11:00pm in the bar area only when the weather drops below freezing. It starts today (and, just for the record, its currently 16 degrees outside) and runs through March 19th.
