Hurry! RSVP for free food at Corner Bakery

You need to click the link and reserve a spot for the taking.
Hey, you want a free sandwich? Ok, it's technically not a sandwich. More like like a cross between a pita and a taco. Corner Bakery calls them "UnFlats", which are filled with either Southwest Chicken, Chicken Caesar, BBQ Pork or Caprese. And they're actually rather small, probably not enough to satisfy if you're particularly hungry.

But it does come with a side of baby carrots. And again it's free. Corner Bakery, as it has done in the past to promote new products, is allowing you to reserve a sandwich at appointed times. There's still plenty of slots available.  Here's the link.
