Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

Meal in $20: Best Burgers in town

Meal in $20: Best Burgers in town

ATLANTA – It’s safe to say that the status of Best Burger in Atlanta is relative. The classic signature burger at Murphy’s in Virginia Highland is served with avocado mayo, cheese and bacon and the signature burger at newcomer restaurant, Grindhouse Killer Burgers is topped with American cheese, grilled onions and Grindhouse sauce; both burgers are pretty delicious and represent the flavor of Atlanta burgers but neither is considered to be the best.

In fact, the “best” burger in town is in such demand that people actually line up to taste it and some run the risk of being chastised if they don’t follow the “rules” of the burger shop.

The “perfect” burger can contain a number of ingredients depending on who you ask. Some people like ketchup and mustard others like mayo and cheese. However, the best thing about Atlanta burger eateries is that they offer something for everyone.
