Today is National Family Day, declared as an official day of observance and celebration by President Bush, to specifically inspire the nation to eat dinner at home with the kids for at least one day! We know that Monday may not be the best night for every family to have dinner together. And in order to enable and encourage everyone to easily set aside one night out of this week to have a special dinner, we created a free (and delicious) special Family Night menu that can be downloaded from the left navigation of our site.
