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."

Fish and chips at The Manchester Arms

Fish and chips at The Manchester Arms

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- Like any good Anglophile, I know that one must usually search far and wide to find acceptable fish and chips in the States.

Thankfully, a small pub in College Park is able to satisfy my cravings for authentic British fare.

The Manchester Arms, a full-service English restaurant, is known for its historical decor as much as it is for great food. The big Union Jack hanging near the entrance is a 100-year-old naval flag. The restaurant's sign is modeled after a stained glass window in a church in England. And many of the menu items are based upon dishes the English have prepared for centuries.

Even if you don't care for British food, stop by The Manchester Arms for a drink or just to check out the incredible interior. It is located at 1705 Virginia Avenue; I always make a point to visit whenever I'm in College Park.
