Free Dessert Throughout the City Today
With tonight's premiere of Top Chef: Just Desserts comes, unsurprisingly, opportunities for cross-promotion. In honor of the show's pilot episode, Open Table has come up with Free Dessert Day, a multi-city gorge-fest that will entitle Open Table users to a free dessert at participating restaurants. The catch is that you must order an entrée to be entitled to your gratis grub, and only one dessert is allowed for every two diners. Which is nowhere near as cool as Dirt Candy's celebration of Emotional Overeating Awareness Month, but hey, it's better than being sent to bed with no dessert at all.
UPDATE: There is also really-free dessert to be found around town today, courtesy of Bravo, which has commandeered a food truck to hand out goodies at various locations. You can follow the truck on its Twitter tracker.
