How to Score a Free Grilled Cheese for Grilled Cheese Month
April 1 is quite the eventful day: It's Opening Day of baseball season, April Fool's Day, and, perhaps most importantly, the start of National Grilled Cheese Month. In honor of such cheesy festivities, The Melt will be giving away 10,000 free grilled cheeses.
Starting today, the first who sign up on eatcheese.com by Friday, April 12 will receive a QR code for a free melt.
In case you haven't heard of them, the Melt is the latest to join the likes of L.A.'s gourmet grilled cheese group, which includes the likes of Heywood in Silverlake and the Grilled Cheese Truck. The Bay Area-based grilled cheese chain is the brainchild of Jonathan Kaplan, who was behind the little hand-held Flip video camera and San Francisco celeb chef Michael Mina, who serves as a consultant on the project.
They serve everything from classic aged sharp cheddar on white bread to the crazy, like the Ballpark Melt, made with aged sharp cheddar, all beef frank with mustard on San Francisco sourdough.
