ORLANDO, FL (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
Sunday, Sept. 10 is National Grandparents Day, a day designated by the federal government for children to tap the wisdom and heritage of their grandparents. This year, Smokey Bones Barbeque & Grill will give grandparents and grandchildren a reason to celebrate together in its restaurants.
On Sept. 10 Smokey Bones will serve either one free appetizer or one free child's meal to any party of grandparents and grandchildren who dine together.
Smokey Bones Barbeque & Grill operates 128 casual dining restaurants in the Eastern and Midwestern U.S. that serve fire-grilled and slow-smoked foods in a comfortable mountain lodge setting.
Menu items include fire-grilled sandwiches and steaks, including half-pound Angus and Buffalo burgers, herbed-grilled Mahi-Mahi sandwiches, Portobello Chicken, and unique salads, such as a grilled Oregon Pear and Spinach Salad. Slow-smoked specialties include brisket, fall-off-the-bone Baby-back and St. Louis-style ribs and hand-pulled pork.
There are approximately 56 million grandparents in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Nearly 5.7 million grandparents live with grandchildren under age 18.
The first presidential proclamation of Grandparents Day was issued by President Carter in 1978, and one has been issued each year since, designating the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day.
