Did anyone else try #saltbae? Given all the hype, I was curious myself! The fries were delicious and the veggie burger tasted like soggy latkes (potato pancakes).

Happy first week of March! Did everyone enjoy Leap Day? I went to a free 30 mins stretching session at LYMBR, brunch with a friend at Café D’Alsace, Silent Disco with Sputnik YOGA that had free blowouts and ear seeds, #saltbae for the free veggie burger and fries, and I got the free Popeyes chicken tenders. The free 3-piece Popeyes chicken tenders ($5.79 value) offer can take up to a week to appear, so please check periodically if the deal pops up in your app.

Being “free” #saltbae was better than I expected! I was aware of the negative reviews, but I actually liked the veggie burger and fries! The veggie burger tasted like soggy latkes (potato pancakes), but I love latkes, so this was good enough for me. I would recommend eating the veggie burger with ketchup, and the fries were well seasoned (still need ketchup though). Also even though the restaurant offers the “free” veggie burger and fries, I still tipped them $2 for the food.

A 30 minutes stretching season at LYMBR usually costs $59, and since I got it for free I technically saved $59! However, I still tipped them $10 for the service, since this would normally be an expensive service.

In addition, from the Sputnik Yoga event, I probably saved $110 alone with all the perks! Yoga normally costs $20, ear seeds can be up to $30, and blowouts normally cost $60 at Broome Street Society. Saving $174.79 is pretty good in one day alone from just the stretching session, yoga, ear seeds, blowout, and chicken tenders. Unfortunately, #saltbae did not have a price on the menu for the “free items,” so I cannot put a value mark to how much I would save.

For this week’s free NYC event list expect a lot of International Women’s Day events, workouts, panels, and travel events.
