Earlier today Schnitz, the aptly-named schnitzel shop in the East Village, told us they’d be giving away Bamberg (chicken shnitzel) and Sweet Onion sandwiches to their first 80 customers this afternoon. As of right now, they have 10 Sweet Onion and two Bambergs left. If you’re not reading this on the Bedford + Bowery app, within a couple of blocks from Shnitz, don’t worry— tomorrow Prohibition Bakery is giving away free pina colada cupcakes, while supplies last.

After a series of delays and under-the-radar soft openings (um hello, where was B+B’s invite?), Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken is finally hatching today, which is a relief because we are running out of chicken puns.

Earlier today, an employee told us the restaurant would be hosting a free tasting around noon, and then closing and re-opening for another free tasting around 6 p.m. Word has gotten out: as we post this, there are 25 people in a line that stretches out the door. Some of them are getting disgruntled (one of them said the line hadn’t moved in 15 minutes) but if you’re in need of a free lunch, you might want to stop yolking around and get over there.
