Now the first day of summer is becoming a marketable day for fast food joints. And I, for one, couldn't be happier! Lets start with the Summer Solstice. June 20th is the longest day of the year, and Sonic is giving it up! Half Price shakes all day Wednesday! 2 area Sonics will be mixing and whipping to your hearts content!

ALSO on Wednesday, area Zoup! locations will be giving away free chilled soup! 3 different 8 ounce varieties that normally are about $4.50 are free on Wednesday! The full story from MLive "Cool freebie on the first day of summer: chilled soup" has more details about the special and about Zoup!

AND on Thursday, it's Customer Appreciation Day at all area Jimmy Johns! 1 dollar subs from 11-3 on Thursday! The subs are the number 1 through 6 and all the Slims! I know what MY lunch will be on Thursday! Celebrate the beginning of Summer with some free and cheap grub!
