Cow lovers rejoice, you can get a free chicken sandwich if you dress up as your favorite farm animal and head on over to Chick-fil-A. For one day only, anyone dressed as a cow Tuesday can get a free entrée — anything from their grilled chicken wraps, Chick-fil-A biscuits, nuggets or original crispy chicken sandwich — and celebrate Cow Appreciation Day. Here’s everything you need to know about the promotion.
What is Chick-fil-A? The fast food chain is an Atlanta-based restaurant chain that specializes in chicken offerings instead of the more common beef burgers you’d see at a more traditional fast food chain. They’re also known for their advertising. They have billboards all over the place showing cows vandalizing the signs with messages asking you to “Eat Mor Chikin.” If you’re driving on a freeway right now you can probably look up and see one in the next few minutes. If you’re driving you should probably look up either way.
Where do I get a cow costume? Chick-fil-A recommends that you get creative with your attire. The company website has pictures of people who drew on paper plates, wore cow-like spotted hats, little kids with white tee-shirts and drawn-on spots, and real cows, which might suggest that a taxidermy cow would be acceptable.
