One item truly jumps out from my Cheap Thrills column in today's paper: Free food from UBurger...
FREE EATS - Burgers and fries at the new U-Burger joint1022 Commonwealth Ave., Allston ; today from 5:30 to 8 p.m., FREE
One of the worst things about living in New England – aside from being less than a fortnight from St. Patrick’s Day and still being buried in snow – is that we’re 3,000 or so miles away from the closest In-N-Out fast food place. Luckily, we’re getting the next best thing: U-Burger. To celebrate the opening of the new U-Burger spot nestled perfectly between Allston Village and Boston University’s campus, the chain is doling out free burgers, fries and sodas this evening to hungry students and working citizens alike. But be warned: there are already more than 2,800 “guests” on the event's Facebook page, so this free burger time is coming with a heavy side order of BU mustard.
