Kids, Meet Dick
Here's how magical Christmas is: For one day this season, the holiday can move the potty-mouthed servers at a tourist-trap chain restaurant to drop the "grumpy" routine and be nice to kids for a lunch shift. This is so out of character that it's almost troubling. What else might happen this season? Will banks stop charging overdraft fees and instead donate $35 to ACORN every time you bounce a check? Will car dealerships stop trying to sell rip-off options like VIN etching and rustproofing? It could happen, because from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, children from 50 military families will get free burgers, hot dogs and presents from Santa Claus at Dick's Last Resort, 2211 N. Lamar St. Call 214-747-0001.
Sat., Dec. 12, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., 2009
