If you’ve spent enough time on the internet, then you know there’s basically an annual day dedicated to essentially every single item and idea in existence— with some making more sense than others. I’m more than down to celebrate any arbitrary holiday that gives me an excuse to drink a certain cocktail, but I’m not going out of my way to partake in “National Hug A Newsperson Day” and “National Walk Around Things Day,” two real, actual “holidays” that also happen to fall on the same date every year.
Thankfully, there are ways to take advantage of these fake holidays. For years, companies have been luring in customers with the promise of free food to celebrate, but one company decided to cut the bullshit and just create one of their own: White Castle, which has declared May 15th “National Slider Day.”
On Monday, the company announced that anyone willing to follow in the footsteps of Harold and Kumar and make a pilgrimage to one of its locations would have the chance to get a free slider and a drink along with any purchase.
As noted by Time, the tweet suggests you have to buy something to get free food, but the link leads to a coupon that doesn’t mention whether or not you have to order something (it’s unclear if you have to print the coupon out to redeem it, but I’m assuming the answer is “no” because it’s not 2006).
Even if you have to buy something in order to reap the benefits of the offer, we’re talking about the only place in the world where you can tell someone you’re still hungry after eating six burgers, so it’s not like getting a single slider and a drink was going to do much for you in the first place.
The chain is also selling White Castle-scented candles for $10 to benefit Autism Speaks, which are perfect for anyone who’s ever wanted a candle that presumably smells like onions, grease, and just the slightest notes of weed smoke.
