Daddy-Daughter Date Night at Chick-fil-A

Daddy-Daughter Date Night at Chick-fil-A

ATLANTA -- The 119 Atlanta-area Chick-fil-A restaurants will host a special Daddy-Daughter Date Night on Saturday, Feb. 5.

Fathers and daughters will be encouraged to spend the evening together, enjoying time in the restaurant and participating in activities.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," said Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director. "We understand the importance of father-daughter relationships and want to encourage Atlanta community members to take a break from busy schedules, enjoy their loved ones' company over a meal and celebrate the significant relationship in their lives."

Each Chick-fil-A will celebrate in its own way.

FOOD REVIEW: The Diner At Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill GA

FOOD REVIEW: The Diner At Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill GA

If I was to think of where a trendy, upscale diner would be my mind would probably gravitate more toward West Midtown or Virginia-Highlands rather than Sugar Hill (near Buford). What we did find was décor equally worthy of the tag “trendy” and friendliness that the South is known for.

We were greeted immediately and seated within 10 minutes (NOTE: we arrived on the tail end of the lunch rush for Sunday brunch. I expect longer waits normally). This brief moment of waiting gave us the opportunity to lust over the dessert display. We found out later that the cakes are made by the owners chef brother.

FOOD REVIEW: Gourmandises, Suwanee GA

Snuggled discreetly at the end of strip mall in Suwanee (ITP folks, please GPS) is a wonderful French bistro known as Gourmandises.

As many Americans, we are unaccustomed to French cooking. I think primarily because of the lack of French restaurants in which we can experience this delight.

FOOD REVIEW: Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar, Sandy Springs, GA

We’d been hearing good things about Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar for weeks and, being seafood lovers, we were dying to check it out.

Our time came however, at the end of a long day shopping and battling traffic for the last hour. To top it all off, the GPS left us in front of an Animal Clinic wondering how in the world with this type of technology it can still be so wrong? Fortunately, we called and they talked us down. Needless to say neither of us were in the best of moods when we walked in, but Ahmeed changed all of that.
