Free burgers for life for Charles Ramsey, Cleveland rescuer (+video)
Free burgers for life await Charles Ramsey at several Cleveland eateries. Ramsey gets free burgers for life after he famously put down his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive for a decade in his neighborhood.
Cleveland — The man who famously put down his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive for a decade in an Ohio house will never have to pay for another burger in his hometown.
Charles Ramsey has been promised free burgers for life at more than a dozen Cleveland-area restaurants.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that the restaurant where Mr. Ramsey worked as a dishwasher initially created a special burger in his honor, but eateries in the city decided a larger tribute was due.
A single-edition "Chuck Card," good for life, is being stamped in Ramsey's honor. Anytime that Ramsey takes the card into one of the participating restaurants, he'll get a free burger.
"I'm sure some places will give him more – maybe add fries and a soft drink – but that will be up to them," said Scott Kuhn of Driftwood Restaurant Group.
The newspaper says Ramsey was traveling and would get his "Chuck Card" when he returns.
