NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — It’s almost the weekend and after working hard all week – you’re probably looking for a break! News 8 found a way for you to entertain the kids for free, and maybe get a few kickbacks for yourself in this week’s Freebie Friday.
This Friday the 13th, one burger chain has an unusual way to cheer at least some people up whether you’re superstitious or not. If you have the word “Luck” in any of your names, it’s your lucky day. You can head to a Jake’s Wayback Burger location and get a free classic burger.
