Food and movie promotions in March 2020
While we’re all being wary in light of the virus situation, perhaps it’s still worth venturing out to cop these deals – especially if they’re available at places near your home. After all, we all have to get our daily meals in, and it’ll be a waste not to take advantage of these promotions – especially the food ones. That being said, remember to use serving spoons when dining to upkeep personal hygiene!
