Hash Over: Mamas Eat For Free at GattiTown; Norma's is Celebrating a Birthday; Chef Stephan Pyles Will Be on Martha Stewart Living Radio
Sure, we're suppose to dedicate this week to our dads and everything they've done for us, but what about Mom? Well, how about we celebrate Mom all summer long? The GattiTown location off Marsh Lane will honor mothers this summer by offering a free buffet to them every Monday. All you moms have to do is bring your little rugrats in and purchase a child's buffet. The cost will be anywhere from $5.69 to $8.69 depending how old your kid is. While you're enjoying your free pizza, the kiddos can keep themselves busy playing in the 6,000-square-foot midway. For more information, visit www.gattitownnorthdallas.com
or call 972-677-7598.
For all you non-parent folks, don't steal your friend's kid for a day just to get a free meal. Now, if they were giving out free adult beverages, that would be another matter.
