A ton of restaurants have been throwing around free grub this summer… I guess it’s to stimulate the food economy or something, i dunnow. We’ve had Krispy Kreme’s doughnut giveaway, 7-11′s free mini Slurpees and McDonalds gave us some shitty chicken-breakfast-thing that apparently tasted like plaster and sandpaper.
The Cheesecake Factory, not to be out done, has decided to be kinda cheap about the whole ‘Free Food 08′ thing and are offering slices of cheesecake for $1.50. I was thinking this was no big deal until I remembered the last time I had a slice, which was probably the best dessert I’ve had in years. Fuck it, their press release can do this better than I can.
Celebrating â€œ30 Delicious Years,â€ The Cheesecake Factory is serving up several sweet initiatives throughout 2008.
To kick-off the anniversary celebration and in commemoration of National Cheesecake Day on July 30th, 2008, The Cheesecake Factory restaurants will offer every delicious slice of its more than 30 varieties of cheesecake with a dollop of nostalgia by featuring all cheesecakes at $1.50 per slice, limit one per guest, dine in only, on that dayâ€”as they were when the restaurant first opened in 1978.
In addition, a special, limited edition cheesecake, the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake, will be introduced on July 30th with $0.25 from the sale of each slice sold this year benefiting the national hunger-relief organization, America’s Second Harvest â€“ The Nation’s Food Bank Network. Additional activities will be announced throughout the year.
On a side note, America’s youth obesity problem and the rise of childhood diabetes are the worst they’ve ever been. Keep that in mind when you’re stuffing your children’s faces with that pie. /rant .
