We here at Eat the District live by only one maxim in life: the only thing better than eating for cheap is eating for free. We are known scavengers, seeking out every complementary drink we can find and asking our friends if they’re REALLY going eat those leftovers because maybe we should just take them instead. We. Love. Free. Food.
Which is why our ears perked up when we first learned of Georgetown Cupcake’s daily cupcake giveaway. Every morning – yes, EVERY SINGLE MORNING – Georgetown Cupcake tweets and posts on Facebook the secret flavor of the day. The first 100 people to show up at each location — Georgetown and Bethesda — and ask for that cupcake get it for free. No stipulations, no strings attached, just a free cupcake. And while the discovery may not have been great for our waistlines, it’s been perfectly fine for our wallets.
Our insider tip: go to the store in Bethesda. Lines are typically very short to non-existent, making it a reasonable trip instead of an all-morning waiting-in-line affair.
