Chipotle, Taco Bell, Moe’s have Burrito Day deals, free food Thursday, which also is National Beer Day
Whether you’re a beer or burrito fan, your day has arrived.
Thursday is National Burrito Day, and Mexican chains are going the whole enchilada and passing along hot deals that include buy-one-get-one and discounted entrees. The made-up food holiday is held on the first Thursday of April each year.
But this year, it’s also National Beer Day, which is annually held on April 7, and one of many days to celebrate the beverage.
On April 7, 1933, a federal law went into effect allowing the sale of beer containing less than 3.2% alcohol, the first legal alcohol allowed since Prohibition began in 1919.
