Ever since Steve Carell announced during his spoof of "The Decision" at this year's ESPYs that he would be taking his appetite away from Chili's and over to Outback Steakhouse, Chili's has taken this PR opportunity and ran with it.

First it was the humorous letter written by Chili's president Wyman T. Roberts in similar fashion to that of Dan Gilbert's, and now the restaurant is taking things a step further. On July 23, five participating Chili's locations will be giving away one free "Sweet Shot" dessert per entree ordered to comfort us depressed Cavaliers fans following LeBron's departure. Chili's in Akron, North Olmsted, Macedonia, Boardman and Canton will all be participating in the giveaway.

Chili's will also be delivering party platters to Cleveland Cavaliers employees on the same day. So if you want to thank LeBron for one thing, let that be free food. Free Chalupas and now free Chili's. — Jordan Zirm
