Just got questions from a couple friends regarding the "Cans and Can'ts" of eating for free. Here are the rules I've laid out for myself:
1. Definition: "Free Eats" implies that the food is legitimately free, not bought by a friend or kind-hearted stranger.
2. Drinking: This girl's gotta drink her morning Mate, even during her Free Eats experiment. Water is free anyway so I'll be drinking a ton of that. Social drinking is tricky but I've gotta make a call and I say "Free Eats" is independent from drinking, so my money can be spent on an occasional glass of wine. Free wine tastings will be blogged about, though.
3. Proof: All free food will be accurately documented through photos, videos and detailed reports on my blog.
