Is your name Dave? Then eat BBQ free at Famous Dave's Aug 30
Some Famous Dave's barbecue restaurants across the country are celebrating the chain's 15th anniversary on Aug. 30 by giving a free entree worth up to $15 to anyone who can prove their name is David, Dave or Davy.
Anyone with one of those as his or her middle name will receive an entree at half-price. I don't know whether Larry David would qualify.
The Minnetonka, Minn., headquartered bone-vendor began business in 1995, and is listed on NASDAQ as DAVE. Dave's now has 176 locations in 38 states, 46 company-owned, the rest franchised. Like many companies in the casual dining sector, Dave's has experienced declining sales, which have been offset by cost cuttings and the closing of some locations.
Dave's hand-rubs its ribs with southern spices, slow roasts them over hickory coals, then tops them off with one of a growing line of its own sauces. The more I write about this, the more I'm tempted to head downtown to the courthouse. How long does it take to officially change one's name?
