Happy Who Dey Way day!

Wow. So the Bengals are going to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1989. And what better way to celebrate Cincinnati pride than with multiple 3-Ways (the food kind).

In a tense AFC Championship game on Sunday, the Bengals knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in overtime after overcoming an 18-point deficit. And that means fans can get free Gold Star on Monday, Jan. 31.

Should we just make Evan McPherson the patron saint of chili?

As the "Official Chili of the Cincinnati Bengals," Gold Star serves up a special deal every time the Bengals triumph in a home — or away — game. The day after the team wins, all Gold Star restaurants celebrate by giving away one free regular or super 3-, 4- and 5-Way with the purchase of another one. Aka BOGO 3-Ways.

The promo is available for drive-in, carry-out, dine-in and online; all you need to do is say "I want the Who-Dey Way special" when you order.
