Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

3 APS schools saved, 7 to close

3 APS schools saved, 7 to close

ATLANTA -- In a meeting that lasted more than 12 hours and had more than 500 attendees, some chanting and carrying signs, the Atlanta school board approved a controversial redistricting plan late Tuesday night.

The board unanimously approved the plan advanced by Superintendent Erroll Davis with three amendments: to keep Towns, D.H. Stanton and F.L. Stanton elementary schools open.

Outbursts from the audience stopped the meeting twice. At one point, while the superintendent was absent, someone from the crowd yelled that Davis needed to return before they continued. The crowd began chanting "We want Davis." In a separate incident, a man who reportedly caused a commotion was escorted out by Atlanta police officers.
