If you're named Joe, Joey, Josephine, Jo-Anne or even Jodie, head to Wahlburgers downtown on March 18 for a free sloppy joe.
March 18 is National Sloppy Joe Day (who knew?) and the burger bar, founded by the titular Wahlbergs — Mark, Donnie and chef Paul — are giving away their "Mom's Sloppy Joe" to anyone named Joe or anyone who has a variation of that name or whose name starts with "Jo."
According to a release, the open-faced sandwich features "mom's housemade sloppy joe smothered on thick-cut grilled bread finished with crispy onions, Chef Paul's signature wahl sauce and cheese sauce."
“One of my favorite dishes on the Wahlburgers menu is ‘Mom’s Sloppy Joe,’" said Paul in the release. "I grew up eating them with my family and thought it would be the perfect addition when we were creating the menu. Every time I take a bite, I’m transported back to when I was kid. We hope it brings that same nostalgia to our guests."
You must bring a photo ID or driver's license to provide proof of your name.

(Anyone else singing "Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe, the right stuff" to the tune of the New Kids on the Block's "You've Got It (The Right Stuff)"? Thanks Donnie. Also, kids unfamiliar with NKOTB, Donnie was in the boy band. The song holds up.)
