If you're looking for a deal on lunch this week, find the nearest Wow Bao on Wednesday, August 22. In observation of National Bao Day (another one of those made-up holidays), the local chain is giving away its famous Asian buns... and anything else you might want to try on its menu.
Hungry guests can show up at any of Wow Bao's six Chicago locations on Wednesday, August 22 from 11am to 2pm to enjoy up to $10 worth of free food—that's enough to cover four bao, a spicy Mongolian bee bowl, eight steamed dumplings or two servings of spicy peanut noodles. All you need to do to take advantage of the promotion is let your Wow Bao cashier know that you're celebrating Bao Day. If you're visiting one of Wow Bao's automated locations (at 200 N Michigan Avenue and 1 W Division St), enter the code "BAODAY" on the order kiosk to receive the $10 discount.
Of course, free lunch usually means long lines of people trying to cash in, so plan accordingly if you're hoping to score some gratis bao on Wednesday.
