Free Coldness Today!

That’s right hot folks! We’re giving away freeze pops today at lunch to help combat the heat. Where I grew up they were Otter Pops, so if you know what I’m talking about you’ll get a high five today. Come see us across from the Duke building, we’ll be ready with tacos and coldness for you.

Looking ahead to the next couple of days for lunch, we’ll be back uptown tomorrow (same spot) and then inside the Duke building (4th floor) on Friday.
