It's easy to forget which day of the week it is when you're cooped up in your home for weeks on end.

But please, don't forget Taco Tuesday. Taco Bell hasn't.

On March 31 (this upcoming Tuesday, if you haven't glanced at a calendar for a bit), the chain will hand out one free beef taco per customer. And to minimize contact, you can only pick yours up in the drive-thru.

Customers will receive the Nacho Cheese-flavored Doritos Locos Tacos (no substitutions). Think of it as a reward to us all for successful social distancing.

If Taco Bell isn't your speed, there are plenty of other chains handing out free food to customers during the pandemic: Burger King will provide two free kids' meals with the purchase of an adult entree when ordering through the chain's app. And every Monday, Krispy Kreme will give out a free dozen doughnuts to health care workers treating patients with the coronavirus.

So go on, claim your free taco in this strange, isolated time. It's what you deserve.

Stronger winds are prompting a Wind Advisory in the valley today, and driving elevated fire danger for your Tuesday. We'll also have the chance for showers and thunderstorms in the Sierra and foothills. A big warming trend is ahead in your extended forecast.
