Today, May 18, is a holiday that pretty much everyone will want to celebrate: National No Dirty Dishes Day.
According to nationaldaycalendar.com, the best way to celebrate today is to either eat all meals out or use disposable paper plates, cups, and silverware (biodegradable for an earth-friendly option). And although the origins of this day are unknown, there is a hashtag: #NoDirtyDishesDay.
To mark the occasion, NationalToday.com and Postmates conducted a dish-avoidance survey, asking 1,000 Americans about their favorite foods that require no dishes or utensils.
Pizza came in as the top food, with 24 percent of people surveyed choosing it as the best way to avoid knives and forks. French fries took the number two spot (12 percent), and chicken wings and tacos made third and fourth position, with 12 percent of the votes each.
To celebrate pizza's victory, Postmates is giving free pizzas to the first 10,000 Miami residents who download the Postmates app May 18.
To get your free pizza, download the app at postmates.com, add pizza to your cart from your favorite pizza restaurant, and use code DISHVACAY for your freebie. Local pizza restaurants include La Locanda, Andiamo,
