National Root Beer Float Day at Percy Street

When is a silly food holiday worth celebrating? When it means half-price floats at Percy Street Barbecue. Made with small-batch Yards root beer poured from the tap, this frosty mug is the best sweet thing you'll wrap your hands around all summer (NSFW excluded, anyway). Spike your float for $7 more, or match it with a special $5 brisket burger, available for one night only.

Where: Percy Street Barbecue at 900 South St.

When: August 6, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

How much: $3 per float
