It’s Free Taco Day, Thanks to Jacoby Ellsbury…
Posted to Flickr by Fabulman
Don’t forget that today is the day to cash in courtesy of Taco Bell & Jacoby Ellsbury, the Boston Red Sox player who stole a base during the World Series, earning everybody in the U.S. a free seasoned beef taco.
This promotion will test the “How far is Zach willing to walk for free food” question. Normally, the answer is “As far as it takes”, but even I’m a little skeptical of this one. Do I really want to walk 15 minutes for something that a) costs less than a dollar, and b) I probably wouldn’t even touch on my hungriest day. Now, if it was a Free Chicken Gordita Surpreme, then we’d be talking…
Free tacos are available from 2-5pm, making it the perfect afternoon snack (under the “If it costs less than $1, it’s a snack” rule.) Here are the Midtown locations of Taco Bell:
- 525 8th Ave (btw. 36+37th), (212) 216-0997
875 Avenue of the Americas (at 31st St.), (212) 947-0859I could have swore there was a Taco Bell/KFC near Koreatown… did it close? Is it not there anymore? 713829 3rd Ave. (btw. 50+51st), (212) 758-5900 (sorry!)
A word of warning… the 8th Ave. location is under the impression that the promotion is from 3-5pm, so you may want to show up a little later for that one, or call ahead to see if they’ve smartened up!
