Casa Sanchez recently revived its offer of free meals to customers who get a tattoo of the restaurants logo
If you live in the Bay Area and don’t mind getting a little commercial body art, Casa Sanchez has a deal for you: Get Jimmy the Cornman, the San Francisco restaurant’s mascot, tattooed anywhere on your body (minimum size: four square inches), and you get free tacos for life. And, yes, you can get it in a not-quite-public spot and still take advantage of the deal. The restaurant keeps track of its walking billboards, so you don’t have to lift your shirt (or any other article of clothing) to get fed. Unless, that is, you really want to.
The Mission District eatery first offered the free food deal in 1999, and capped participants at 50. Many of those have long since recouped the $100 cost of the tattoo, and still come to the restaurant periodically for a bite (the deal gets you one meal a day). The The current offer began in January, and three people have opted to go under the gun so far.
