Everyone loves Saquon Barkley.
The Chick-fil-A restaurant in Whitehall, Pa., near where the running back grew up and went to high school, is doing what it does best to celebrate No. 26 heading to a (hopefully) prosperous NFL career this spring. By ... giving ... away ... sandwiches?!
On Monday, Jan. 15, the Lehigh Valley-based restaurant will host “Saquon Day” from noon to 5 p.m. So, what does “Saquon Day” entail? Well, if you mention the man of honor's first name inside the eating establishment, well, YOU GET A SANDWICH.
Here’s a statement from the restaurant, posted to Facebook:
We are so proud of Saquon Barkley, a Whitehall High School alumni, as he is getting prepared for the NFL draft! To celebrate, we are having a Saquon Barkley appreciation day!
I just might have to make the trip for this chicken sandwich.
Couple of key notes. First, for all you Lehigh Valley folks, it is DINE-IN ONLY at the location (2610 MacArthur Road in Whitehall).
Also (and this is really important), according to the restaurant:
Saquon will not be making an appearance.
