"Whack the sad sack pinata!" urges a Facebook posting. "At Qdoba we know that packing your lunch is the pits. That's why this Friday in downtown Denver, Qdoba is giving you a break from having to eat lunch at your desk.Head down to the 16th Street Mall and have a whack at the giant sad sack pinata and we'll hook you up with a free Qdoba entree just for taking a swing. And if you're the lucky one to bust open the stinky brown bag pinata, you'll walk away with burritos for a year!"
And you'd better hurry over to 16th Street and Arapahoe: You can start taking whacks at that sack lunch at 11 a.m., and the event ends at 1 p.m.
