It's National Root Beer Float Day today, which other than a cold beer and free beer is one of my favorite types of beer. Get a free root beer float today from 2-8pm at participating A & W Restaurants. When they say free, it really is free, no purchase necessary. They would however like something in return for the free float...

...A donation to the DAV. It's not a mandatory donation, but the restaurants participating in the free root beer float day are encouraging donations to the Disabled American Veterans.

A & W Root Beer actually got its start with making floats in correlation with a parade honoring those returning from WWI according to its website. And today, National Root Beer Float Day is no different for A & W as they plan to "honor our company's roots by continuing to provide support in the homecoming of our service members."

You can ALSO score a free 2-liter of root beer today by taking a pledge to stay device free for an hour Friday nights and spending time with your family. Just head here and take the pledge for your free 2-liter coupon.  The pledge according to the website states:
