I just read an interesting press release. It says that Burtons Grill is giving away free food to people named Pat on March 17. I'm not making this up. From 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., customers who have “Pat” somewhere in their name will receive a free appetizer.
How many Patricks and Patricias will show up for this promotion? The folks at Burtons Grill aren't sure.
In the press release, CEO Kevin Harron says: “Of course, this is a city with a strong Irish community and we didn’t do much research on the number of 'Pats' in the area… so we’ll see what happens."
The giveaway is only happening at the restaurant's Boston location, at 1363 Boylston Street. And all Pats seeking free apps should bring a valid ID.
