Free burgers and rides for some on Monday

On Monday – at undisclosed times and locations – McDonalds representatives will be outside metro stops handing out coupons for transit fares and McD’s new-ish angus burgers. Although Reuters claims the city specifics won’t be announced till the day before, we just got a release from a local PR firm indicating that it’ll happen in our area at 10 undisclosed metro stops on the 14th. Keep your eyes peeled if you want a freebie but don’t expect them to last long – the press release indicates there’s 3,500 burger coupons and another 3,500 free ride vouchers to go around across the 10 mystery locations.

Just to put that in perspective, 700,000 people rode the metro on Tuesday and the start of this week’s work week. So if you do manage to beat the less than 1 in 8 odds of being at a station where the handout is happening, strike while the iron’s hot.

I mean, not literally. Don’t HIT the person handing out coupons. That’s just rude.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  4. Might want to change the image on this article…I saw free burgers as the headline and a picture of what looks unmistakeably like Matchbox sliders. Only to find out its gross McDonalds… bummer.
