Tuesday, February 9, is being celebrated as not one but two major made-up food holidays. It is both National Bagel Day and National Pizza Day, and because restaurants and shops around the country are playing along to honor these very important holidays, it’s easy to grab some free grub today. Play your cards right and you could snag freebies for breakfast, lunch, and perhaps an afternoon snack as well.

Here’s where to go:

Einstein Bros.: All customers get a free bagel with a shmear with any purchase on Feb. 9. Just download a coupon from the link and bring it (or show it on a mobile device) at participating locations, which will be making bagel donations to local charities too.

Original Brooklyn Water Bagel: Participating locations are giving away free egg and cheese bagel pockets—a new addition to the menu—for National Bagel Day.

Pilot Flying J: The roadside convenience store chain is giving away one free slice of its “Unexpectedly Awesome” pizza per customer on Feb. 9.

Zabar’s: Use the coupon code BAGELDAY and when you buy two bags of bagels at this famed New York City establishment, you’ll get a third bag for free. Ground shipping is provided free as well on orders of three or more bags.

And if you’re the type who can’t pass up a freebie, mark March 8 on your calendar: That’s when IHOP is giving away free pancakes in its annual National Pancake Day celebration.
