From Jake to Kyle, so many names have been tarnished by a single rotten egg – but on occasion, there are perks to having one combination of letters over another. This week, courtesy of northern franchise StrEATS, it’s those named Karen who will reap the benefits.

On February 11th at locations in Alberta, BC, Ottawa and Winnipeg, the street foods eatery will be offering a single free taco to anyone with the name that has alternatively become a slang term for entitled middle-aged women.

“In partnership with Karen for Karens, a charity dedicated to breaking the #stigmaagainstkaren, we are celebrating National Karen Day on February 11,” they said in an Instagram post.

While this appears to be a totally made-up organization, this meal deal is real and will be offered as long as guests can provide valid identification.

Customers will have their choice of meat, toppings and sauce which can be paired with a side or drink for an additional charge – so consider popping by!

An opportunity like this doesn’t come along very often. Enjoy!
