That's why restaurants across Miami are stepping up on your bedraggled behalf during on this national day of mourning to provide some cheap chow. Or maybe you're getting a refund. In which case you should stop reading now. But if you want a little something for nothing, read on.
Sonic drive-in restaurants are extending a half-price slushy drink happy hour to all day. Some drinks are only $1 normally, which means today you can get them for only 50 cents, no coupon necessary.
