If there's anything a Clevelander (or anyone from the suburbs) hates doing more than paying for parking, we can't think of it. But now through Feb. 28 the Flats East Bank area is offering free parking on select days.

Of course, all this wonderful freeness isn't available on peak nights out with your friends, and is only applicable for Sunday through Wednesday in all self-parking outdoor lots from 5 p.m. onward. Those looking for valet or garage parking will have to pay, and any sort of special event parking nights makes the deal null and void.

The bleak midwinter can be tough for downtown businesses, especially during the week. By offering free parking, the following Flats bars and restaurants are hoping to bring more people through their doors:

Alley Cat Oyster Bar
Backyard Bocce
Beerhead Bar & Eatery
Bold Food & Drink
Dante’s Inferno
LAGO, Magnolia
Punch Bowl Social
The Big Bang
Thirsty Dog Brewing Co.
True Cocktails & Bites
