Well, that's not quite true. There is such a thing as a free lunch at Sofi's Crepes next Tuesday, Dec. 15, from noon to 1:30 p.m. (The Sofi's at 333 N. Charles St.).
To get a voucher for your free lunch for two, e-mail email@example.com. Lunch includes one savory crepe and a drink for each of you.
The first 50 people to e-mail will get the vouchers. ...
Winners will be notified Dec. 9.
The sort-of-bad news is that vouchers must be picked up from the Downtown Partnership offices at 217 N. Charles St., by 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 14, so this makes sense mostly for people who work downtown.
While I'm at it, I want to link to a post over at Consuming Interests about free $10 gift certificates from Restaurant.com. I've been meaning to do it before, and just got bogged down. Check it out.
