Mike Crimaldi, who operates the restaurant, also added dinner hours on Monday nights.

41 DEGREES NORTH OFFERING SPECIALS IN PLACE OF FAKE COUPON 

41 Degrees North isn’t handing out buy-one-get-one free meals, but is helping correct an issue with a coupon. 

A fake coupon for the restaurant, 104 S. Main St., Middlebury, was printed in inMiddlebury Magazine offering the BOGO meal and a free beer on the customer’s birthday, according to Flavor 574.

The magazine accidentally sent an email to a Gmail account with a similar name as the restaurant. The recipient then sent information for and approved a coupon that went to press.

“Our customers are very important to us, and we know that many of you were excited to use this offer,” read a post on 41 Degrees North’s Facebook page. “As we hope you understand, this offer truly is too good to be true, as it isn’t one which we can accept without significant loss to the business.”

Instead, the restaurant is offering coupon holders half-off an entree after the purchase of the first entree until Aug. 31.
