This time, you're going to have to do a little work to get your free food, but it's going to be worth it. America's Backyard in Fort Lauderdale is offering a free 50 foot Luau themed Buffet this Friday from 4:30 to 9 p.m. The buffet is loaded with coconut chicken, sesame Mahi Mahi, pineapple ham, sweet mashed potatoes, Key Lime pie, and coconut cream pie. The only catch: you have to call ahead or go online to RSVP with some of your friends. To help wash down all that food, America's Backyard also offers 2 for 1 drinks during the buffet. If you don't RSVP, it's just $7 for the buffet, and no cover if you live in Broward or Palm Beach County. What a way to start the weekend.
