We'd still argue that a freezing-cold metal Julep cup full of deliciousness is the ideal refreshment for this week's heat dome, but a milkshake doesn't sound so bad, either. Head to any Z-Burger (except Glover Park, where there are no milkshakes) from 2 to 6 p.m. on Thursday and say the secret password, "ZHeatwave," for a free regular shake.

It's not the first (or probably even the 50th) time Z-Burger has offered giveaways tied to a theme. In fact, the promos usually become huge jinxes for the affected party, so let's hope this heat-themed handout means cooler days are coming soon.
