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."

On Wednesday nights, the lounge hosts their popular, YO! Karaoke event which is well attended and a guaranteed good time. Pal’s boats a full bar and enough tunes to sing yourself into oblivion, take a date. They’re located at 254 Auburn Ave in O4W.

TUCKER, Ga. -- Author Kim Edwards has planned two talks and book signings in metro Atlanta for the end of January.

Edwards, who wrote the New York Times bestseller The Memory Keeper's Daughter, has penned a new novel about an old house, a family secret and a mysterious legacy.

In the book, The Lake of Dreams, Lucy Jarrett returns home to upstate New York from Japan. Still haunted by her father's death a decade earlier, Lucy begins to learn more about her complex family history through a series of artifacts that she once dismissed as useless memorabilia. Her search for the truth uncovers knowledge about her lineage, which links her to the women's suffrage movement and helps her discover herself.
