Free coffee, free lunch.
Remember back in the days of college (ha ha, maybe many of you are still in college!), when any sort of free food would cause stampedes of people, no matter how good or bad the food was?
When I was at MIT one year, they had this thing called the Infinite Buffet. Sort of a play on the Infinite Corridor at MIT (the 2nd longest corridor in the world after the one at the Pentagon), there were promises of food. Lines and lines of endless free food. Infinite amounts of food. A dream for any college student.
Well, it turned out to be disaster, (for me at least). The crowds were insane - seriously, mobs of people shoving their way forward, trying to get at least a bite of the free buffet food. Alas, there really wasn't enough food, and many of us (me included), left basically empty-handed.
Well, today I've been given the opportunity to give away TWO "free lunches." I have two $25 gift certificates to Seamlessweb's new online ordering system. It's pretty neat. You just log in, place your take out order, and - voila! Food arrives at the prescribed time.
Although most of the restaurants on their list are ones I haven't visited before, I did find some places that I didn't expect would have a delivery option, such as Fugakyu, Genki-Ya, Cafe Luna, and places in the North End like Pizzeria Regina, Artu, and Il Panino. You can even get your fix of Chinatown through places like Chau Chau City or China Pearl. Of course, some of the availability depends on how far you live, so definitely check the site. For a $5 discount on your first purchase, use the code FREECOFFEE.
Starting TODAY (and for the next four days), Seamless Web is giving away free coffee all throughout Boston at various locations (Harvard Square, Downtown Crossing, Back Bay). Check out this page for details on when and where.
Giveaway will run from today until Friday, February 4, 2011 at midnight.
