Cast your vote on Nov. 2 and get free fries from the Counter

By Allen Pierleoni

"Voting is cool," said the press release, and we agree.

One advantage to participating in next week's elections is a dollars-off special being offered at all Counter burger joints on Nov. 2.

On that day, show your "I Voted" sticker to the server and get a free side of french fries (usually $3.25). If you voted by absentee ballot, just say so and get the same deal. Counter has faith in its customers' honesty.

Another promotion will be on National Pickle Day (Nov. 14), when a $4 order of fried pickle chips will sell for $1.

The build-your-own-burger Counter chain has 16 units in California. The one closest to us is at the Fountains shopping center, 1005 Galleria Blvd., Roseville; (916) 773-2333,

Call The Bee's Allen Pierleoni at (916) 321-1128.
