Food.Fun.Stuff: Tax Day!

[ 0 ] April 15, 2010 |

TAXES ARE DUE AND DONE! If you have ever had a bite at the “real world” then you are very familiar with the importance of April 15. Today marks the last day to file your taxes and calls for either a celebration or a complete sulking fest. If you opt to do either, there are a few businesses helping with that cause. Check it:

CINNABON: Get two free bite-sized cupcakes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday
at participating mall locations as part of “Tax Day Bites!” Flavors include
Chocolate Passion, 24-Carrot Cake, Vanilla Bliss and Cinnacake Classic.

MAGGIE MOO’S: Get one free slice of ice cream pizza — ice cream with red
frosting to look like sauce and white chocolate to look like cheese — at
participating locations from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

STARBUCKS: Get free brewed coffee all day Thursday if you bring your own
mug, a promotion the cafe chain says is friendly to the environment as well
as taxpayers.

BOSTON MARKET: For a “last-minute tax break” — one free meal for each one
you buy Thursday through Sunday — show this coupon:

IHOP: Expanding on the tax deduction parents get for kids, the restaurant
chain is offering free dinner for one child age 12 or younger with each
adult meal purchased 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. all month long.

MCCORMICK & SCHMICK’S: The seafood restaurant is offering $10.40 dinner and drink specials in the bar on Thursday — a nod to the 1040 tax form. Bar
guests who come in April 15 also receive a $10.40 gift certificate for a
later visit. And professional tax preparers, who may have to work right
until the midnight deadline Thursday, get their freebie Friday: dessert on
the house plus a $10.40 certificate if they show a business card.

P.F. CHANG’S: Get 15 percent off food purchases for dine-in or take-out,
excluding alcohol and happy hour food and beverages.

HYDROMASSAGE: Get a free massage Thursday through Sunday at participating
locations. The mall-based massage chain suggests calling ahead to book an
appointment. Find a location at
