Burger King is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year by giving away free value-size servings of fries accompanied by green ketchup on Saturday, March 17, and Sunday, March 18, at participating locations around the country.
“Free fries for St. Patrick’s Day weekend is the Burger King way of sharing the luck of the Irish with all of our guests,” said Alex Macedo, Burger King’s senior vice president of North America marketing. For the two-day freebie event, the fast food chain teamed up with Heinz, who provided Burger King with the green ketchup that will accompany the free fries.
Also, about 35 million Americans call Ireland their ancestral home. If you were ever thinking of taking a trip there, travel publisher Lonely Planet is giving away its Dublin city guide app (regularly priced at $5.99) until 11:59 p.m. PST on March 17. The app is available for the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad; users must first download and open the free Lonely Planet Travel Guidesapp and then scroll down to select “Dublin Travel Guide.”
