The Wizards defeated the 76ers, 120-115 on Wednesday. That reminds me to give you a friendly reminder about this year’s food promotions, because we get all three possible ones today!

Promotion 1: Free McDonald’s Large French Fries with any purchase

If the Wizards lead after the first quarter, everyone gets free McDonald’s large fries with any purchase — but only if you have the McDonald’s app on your iPhone or Android device. The Wizards, led after the first quarter, so that’s a done deal!

This is the third consecutive season the Wizards had a McDonald’s deal. However, it’s the first time they’ve had a non-breakfast deal. Last season, fans could get a free McGriddles sandwich with any purchase. And in 2015-16, fans could get a Free Egg McMuffin without any purchase.

Even if you have to pay a buck for a soda or a Breakfast Burrito from the All-Day Breakfast menu, this is still a hell of a deal.

Promotion 2: Half Price Papa John’s Pizza

If the Wizards score more than 100 points and win a regular season game, or if they win a postseason game, then everyone in the D.C. area gets 50% off regular priced pizza at Papa John’s the next day.

The Wizards won, 120-115, so we got it! Office managers in the D.C. area are all happy that they can give everyone lunch AND keep the food bill under budget!

Promotion 3: Free Chick-fil-A sandwiches

If a player from the opposing team misses two consecutive free throws in the fourth quarter during a Wizards HOME GAME, then everyone who has a ticket to the game gets a free Chick-fil-A sandwich for the next week. On Wednesday, Ben Simmons missed two free throws with 2:06 left in the game which made fans go ecstatic.

This promotion is the most difficult to win because most NBA players are good at making their free throws, though it happens sometimes. It’s also the only promotion that fans cannot win unless they have a ticket to the game.

What should you do Thursday?

For most of you, I recommend that you head to McDonald’s, buy a soda or breakfast burrito and get some free large fries AFTER 10:30 a.m. because McDonald’s doesn’t offer french fries during breakfast time. Then for dinner, order some Papa John’s. However, if your workplace is having lunch, order the pizza then and save the fries for supper.

Finally, if you have a Chick-fil-A sandwich, save it for Friday. I know some people may have tried to have a McGriddles sandwich for breakfast, Chick-fil-A for lunch, ad Papa John’s for dinner. But that’s a bit too unhealthy. In addition, you have a week to use that coupon, so save it for another day.

Happy Thursday everyone!
