Since the government shut down on Tuesday, you've no doubt seen — and maybe taken advantage of — the scores of freebies offered to federal employees by area businesses.
Z-Burger, which offered free burgers to furloughed feds at lunch and dinnertime at its Virginia Square and three other locations in the DC area, has since ended the promotion.
Peter Tabibian, the owner of Z-Burger, told the Huffington Post that he ended up giving away $30,000 worth of burgers a day — some 5,000 to 6,000 sandwiches, thanks to lines of 200 or more people at a time. That promotion, which started Tuesday, ended Thursday.
But if you're beginning to feel the pinch of not working, or working without a paycheck, fret not: Pentagon Row is open — with deals for furloughed feds — while the government is closed.
Several restaurants there are offering 10 percent to 20 percent off with a government ID.
Naked Pizza, for instance, is offering 15 percent off in-store purchases with a government ID or furlough notice through the end of the shutdown at its Pentagon Row, Ballston, McLean, Reston and Bethesda locations.
You can find more information on the Pentagon Row specials here or on the attached flier.
