Who doesn't enjoy a good burger...especially when they are free?!

I know that it is hard to keep up with all of these "national days" that pop up all throughout the year. Some of them are so random and really have no benefit, however, there are a few of them that I can get behind, especially when the thing we celebrate that day is free. Case in point: this Sunday is National Cheeseburger Day. Restaurants all over will be offering specials on September 18th on their burgers that you might want to take advantage of.

Of course, there are likely to be more deals available with other restaurants, including local businesses. It wouldn't hurt to ask if you go somewhere that serves burgers on Sunday if they have any specials to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day.
