In One-Sentence or Less: “Overall, a great way to start the weekend!”

Looking for a way to jumpstart your kid-friendly weekend? Bingo! You found it. On the third Saturday of every month, Chick-Fil-A hosts “Breakfast Bingo,” a chance for customers hungry for some delicious breakfast chicken and some friendly competition to satisfy both cravings in one fast-paced hour event.


We visited “Breakfast Bingo” in November.  We arrived right at 8:30 AM, the posted start time. We were greeted inside by a full crowd; our fellow bingo players were already nabbing their “free spaces” while we placed our breakfast order at the counter.


Here’s an Tip: If you visit, especially with small children, arrive in plenty of time to order your food, visit the bathroom, and secure a prime bingo booth.


Though the bingo section booths were full, we were delighted to meet some friends who graciously let us share their booth.  Squeezing in an extra four people at their booth was a true sign of friendship!


The bingo host talked us through each game, clearly calling letter and number spaces and allowing time for kids to keep up with the play.


The games moved quickly and with lots of variety, which made the hour speed by for the adults at our table . . . partly because we each had two little ones who occasionally needed help with their games.

An Tip: Having an adult/child ratio is recommended if you have young ones who might need assistance.


Several coveted prizes were awarded, as each game winner was handed a Chick-Fil-A 2015 calendar.  The calendars, complete with the monthly coupon card stocked with a valuable free offer each month, had recently been made available at the Chick-Fil-A store and will be around while supplies last.


“Breakfast Bingo” was enjoyed by a crowd of customers of all ages.  The event connected us with friends and got our smiles and brains in gear for an eventful day.  Overall, a great way to start the weekend!
