If you aren’t as big of a fan of the nickname “Hump Day” for Wednesday as the camel in the Geico commercials, you might consider renaming Wednesday “FREE Dessert Day.” Perhaps restaurants just figure people need a pick-me-up on the middle day of the week. Or maybe they felt bad since the ‘d’ in Wednesday is silent and it ought to stand for dessert. We’re probably clutching at straws with that one, but we’re happy to report that we’ve found three separate restaurants offering a FREE dessert the middle of your work week:
Max & Erma’s: This American-style grille may be best known for its hamburgers (personal recommendation if you don’t mind a bit of spicy heat: the Tortilla Burger), but they’re more than happy to share their fresh-baked cookies with you too. On Wednesday, the cookies won’t add to your bill, meaning FREE dessert if you save room after the delicious burgers.
CR Heroes Family Pub: Like Max & Erma’s, CR Heroes offers FREE dessert in the form of fresh-baked cookies on Wednesdays. This Fishers-based pub also offers tableside magic shows on Saturday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
O’Charley’s: In case you feel like something different from cookies, O’Charley’s offers FREE pie on Wednesday evenings. The choices for pie flavors include peach, caramel, apple, pecan, and french silk. Since this FREE dessert is offered weekly, you can try all of them if you come back each Wednesday.
