Get ready for some serious news: Macarons are not the only round foodstuffs widely available for free today. Apparently Outback is giving away Bloomin’ Onions (“hand carved by a dedicated ‘bloomologist,’” no less) at all of its locations in the contiguous United States, plus Puerto Rico. Within the five boroughs, that’s a decent handful of Outbacks that will be frying up a big springtime storm of alium. Yes, of course, terms and conditions apply, and there’s yet another secret-code phrase you must tell your server (hint: it’s not “the dingo ate my baby.”) En garde, bloomologists!
