Government Shutdown Specials: All the Raleigh Spots Offering Free Goods to Furloughed Employees

Politics aside, I think we can all agree that this government shutdown is kind of the worst for federal employees who haven't been paid for over three weeks and may be struggling to get by let alone have a nice time out on the town. That's why several local businesses are looking to support their furloughed neighbors by offering free food and other treats to federal employees as long as the shutdown lasts. 

Check out the offers below, and let us know at editor@offlinemedia.net if there's something we've missed. We'll keep the list updated as we learn more—but here's hoping this is all over soon!
