This election is stressing me out.
At least there’s comfort food in my future.
And a lot of it is free.
It’s been a long, draining election season. But come Tuesday, that little “I Voted” sticker is more than a ticket stub from democracy — it’s also a pass to discounts, deals and promotions.
Regardless of politics, this election has been a lot for United States citizens to swallow.
After you cast your ballot, you can check out these places that are offering something a lot more pleasant to munch on:
Marco’s Pizza at 3599 Webber St. in Sarasota is actually giving out free pizzas on Election Day to customers who visit marcos.com and sign up for a voucher through its “Vote Marco’s” campaign.
The Great American Cookie Company at the Mall at University Town Center is going to be giving out a free cooking to anyone wearing an “I Voted” sticker on Tuesday. You’re out of luck, though, if you’re looking for the deal at Westfield Sarasota Square. That Great American Cookie Company has closed up shop in recent months.
World of Beer is asking the community to “come together over a pint of common good” on Election Day. If drinkers and diners mention this offer to their server, their first draft is only a dollar. No double voting though. The offer is only valid for one check per person. The tavern chain has locations at Main Street and Osprey Avenue in downtown Sarasota, near University Parkway and Cooper Creek Boulevard in University Town Center, and at Cortez Road West and Fifth Street West in Bradenton.
BurgerFi, the new artisan burger joint in University Town Center at 257 N. Cattlemen Rd., is offering its “Conflicted Burger” to diners with an “I Voted” sticker for $5. The burger, which is clearly having an identity crisis, features a natural Angus burger and a veggie burger that are topped with American, white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and BurgerFi’s signature sauce. The promotion is about $3 dollars less than a typical BurgerFi burger.
