Free tater tots at the Tot Boss truck this Sunday
From what we can tell, the new comedy Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy of Bridesmaids fame, has very little to do with tater tots. A woman who loses her job, car, and husband in one day copes by taking an epic road trip with her grandmother (played by Susan Sarandon).
All the same, fans of these crispy little potato nuggets will appreciate the tater tot giveaway that's hitting Minneapolis this Sunday to help promote the film. Does it have to make sense when free tots are involved?
Tot Boss, which will be renamed Topper Jack's for the day in honor of the fast-food joint featured in Tammy, is offering the first 250 guests free tater tots and Tammy t-shirts on Sunday morning.
The tater tot giveaway is inspired by a scene in the movie where Tammy holds up Topper Jack's with a paper bag shaped like a gun and demands their pies. Again, we're not exactly sure how tater tots fit into the equation, but we're not complaining. Free is free.
To claim your tots, hit up the MN Food Truck Fair on the corner of 31st Street and Holmes Avenue at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
