Uber Delivers (Possibly Free) Ice Cream to Fort Worth

Category : family, Featured, food, free

 photo ubericecream_zps2217368d.jpgHere’s a fun activity for a Friday! On July 18, Uber Fort Worth will offer an ice-cream-on-demand service to those who request it! It’s simple to participate. Just download the Uber app and choose the Ice Cream option. If a vehicle is available, you’ll be enjoying your desserts within minutes! The cost is $25 for 5 ice cream treats. Cars will serve a variety of locally-made ice cream items. You don’t need any cash either – the fee will be billed to your Uber account. Split the cost with some friends and have fun with this novelty!

There is also another possibility that can make the ice cream free! If you have any credits in your Uber account, you can apply that toward the cost of the ice cream. Never used Uber? Sign up at this link and you’ll get a credit for a free ride up to $30, which can be used toward the treats. Or, use it for a ride. Whichever you like!

This offer is also available in Dallas, and many other cities where Uber is operating.

Free Meal at Pluckers in Fort Worth

Category : dining, family, Featured, food, free

 photo pluckers_zps152fb92f.jpgUpdate 7/9/14: I received a call from Pluckers today asking me to remove this post. Apparently, they have been overwhelmed with customers and have had to turn away some people. (They said that the promo was only for Facebook fans – so be sure to like their page if you go.) And be prepared to be turned away, especially if you don’t arrive right at the beginning of the shift. I’ve also updated the post with more details. Who doesn’t like free food? Starting today, the new Pluckers in Fort Worth will offer free meals to customers who come at designated times. This is the restaurant’s way of helping their staff to “practice” before the real opening of the restaurant. To get a free meal, show up at any of the following times:

July 7-9: Anytime from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 6-8 p.m.
If you are a member of the Pluckers Club, you can also attend the following shifts in addition to the ones above (be sure to bring your card):
July 10-12: Anytime from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 6-8 p.m.

A few caveats: Each party may have no more than 4 people, including children. If you have a bigger party, they’ll need to be split across several tables. Each diner will receive an entree, side and non-alcoholic beverage, and the table will receive either a dessert or appetizer to share. No additional food is available for purchase, but alcoholic drinks can be bought. Customers should also be aware that service may be slow, since the servers are new.

Pluckers is at 9229 Rain Lily Trail in Fort Worth, in Alliance Town Center.

Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A

Category : Featured, food, free

It’s back! Friday, July 11 is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A. On this day, you can receive free food for coming to your local restaurant dressed as a cow. How much free food you get depends on how dressed up you are! Those in a full cow costume will receive a free meal. People who come partially dressed as a cow – say, with a cow-printed purse or hat – will get a free entree.

If you need help, the Chick-fil-A website has a cow costume starter kit you can print out.
