Dress like a cow, get free chicken at Chick-fil-A
Find out Friday at one of Chick-fil-A's more than 1,400 restaurants. In honor of the company's fifth annual Cow Appreciation Day, any customer who dresses like a bovine gets a free combo meal. But tasteful furry ears or a cowbell necklace alone won't cut it -- the promotion only applies to those decked out head to toe in cow garb. Partial cow attire only will earn customers a free entree.
The Atlanta-based chicken chain's soft spot for cows can be traced directly to its marketing campaign that features cows wearing "Eat Mor Chikin" signs.
A Facebook photo contest will be held on the dress-up day. Parents also can start entering their children in the Kids' Photo Contest online. The grand-prize winner will receive a prize package, a digital camera and a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond.
Chick-fil-A has some sartorial advice on its website, including tips on how to create a spotted costume.
Just be careful to channel Daisy the cow, not Cruella de Vil.
