Here is a gastronomic celebration not canceled by the coronavirus pandemic: the national frying day.
While 7-Eleven has canceled its annual free slurpee day, Chick-fil-A has postponed its day of appreciating the cow and its gifts and tax agreements are almost non-existent, restaurants across the country still offer fries and free fries on Monday.
The holiday, also known as National Frying Day, takes place every year on July 13. Most Monday specials require a purchase or a mobile app.
There are also contests on Monday. The Idaho Potato Commission offers a $ 100 Visa gift card, an air fryer and other prizes. The Great American Takeout and Heinz are hosting a ketchup art competition.
