image001

What better way to celebrate Hump Day than with free beer and food specials? Well maybe with free beer and food specials on a beach, but let’s not be picky.

Starting today, Wednesday, July 9th, and continuing every WednesdayWokWorks will be pouring free draft beer (until the keg runs out) from 5 – 10 p.m. And tonight you can get your hands on Kirin, an authentic Japanese beer that can be enjoyed with the delicious (and cheap) food specials, including $2 slider buns, $3 dumplings, $5 tropicalia wings and more.

Beers are limited to 3 per person because after all, you still have to go in to work the next day.

All finishers get a free beer and mug, and, to sweeten the pot for Be Well Philly readers, they’re offering $5 discount to those of you who register this week.  Read more »

Tonight: Free Beer At Shake Shack To Celebrate Their Nice New Rack

ShackCorralSo the 20th and Sansom Shake Shack location is installing a new bike corral. And sure, it’s a nice rack–installed by SHIFT_DESIGN in modular format, able to hold 10-14 bicycles and planted with winter gem boxwoods to match those on the roof of the building. But still, reporting on new bike racks is not normally what we do here at Foobooz.

But because this is Shake Shack and because they know how to throw a party, this is a little different, because in order to celebrate the installation of their new racks, Shake Shack will be giving away free beer from 6-8pm tonight–complimentary Headwaters Pale Ale and Storm King Stout from Victory Brewing. There’ll also be “bike-friendly swag” being given away, and the kitchen will be blending up Storm King floats just for the event.

So, if you’re in the neighborhood this evening between 6pm and 8pm, why not stop by? And if you happen to arrive by bike, that’s just a bonus.

Free beer. Free shepherds pie. Free Jameson. Yes, I said FREE JAMESON. Kildare’s is getting all crazy with their St. Patty’s Day celebrations and spending the next 17 days just flat-out giving stuff away to people at all their local outposts.

Like, for example, today, where the bar will be handing over free 12oz Guinness draughts to the first 100 people through the door. Yeah, it’s a short pour, but why are you complaining? It’s free. You want a big boy pint, buy one.

Oh, and just for kicks the bar will be handing out $17.59 gift certificates to every customer who kicks a keg of Guinness between now and the big day.

As if you people needed another excuse to keep drinking…

Beer Money, Cheap(er) Wine, Royal Cakes and Breakfasts, Starbucks, and Where Stormtroopers Go On Their Nights Off

Need statistical proof that Starbucks will soon own every street corner in America? Then check out the report from Technomic which ranked it as the number-three restaurant chain in domestic sales for 2010. McDonald’s and Subway still hold the top two slots, but #3 isn’t bad for a place that isn’t really a restaurant. And the best quote to come out of this surprise re-jiggering of the rankings? It’s from Sandra Stark, vice president of food for Starbucks, who attributes the chain’s success to “a shift in how consumers define ‘healthy.'” Nice…

Speaking of stuff that isn’t food, how’d you like to make a hundred bucks just for drinking beer? Sounds awesome, right? Of course, there’s a catch. You’ve got to be part of a panel testing gluten-free beer. Check out the Gluten Free Philly Facebook page for details.
