With the “Hooping Cough” poised to strike this Thursday and Friday, Hickory Tavern is playing doctor and writing prescriptions.
A complication of “Hooping Cough” this year is the “Shamrock Flu” which is expected to hit on Friday, the time when people celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The cure for these maladies is a one-day-only dish and a frosty green concoction that makes everything all better.
In anticipation of the college basketball tournament, Charlotte-based Hickory Tavern, the neighborhood social gathering spot, will spend this week handing out “prescriptions”. Everyone who stops into the Tavern on Thursday, March 16 and Friday, March 17 can have their “prescription” filled with FREE Chips & Queso.
Also on Friday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) only, Hickory Tavern will introduce its very own, adult version of a popular and iconic seasonal shake. The Tavern’s version is called the Green Gorilla. It’s a thick vanilla shake with 3 different kinds of rum and a drop of green food coloring to give it some St. Patrick’s Day swagger ($5.95). Hickory Tavern will also feature traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage all day long on St. Patrick’s Day, Friday, March 17th.
“Hickory Tavern is nestled right in the middle of basketball country so we’re the best place to play hooky and watch March Insanity,” said Hickory Tavern CMO Thom Perez. “So, for anyone already feeling the ‘Hooping Cough’ coming on, we’ve got the perfect excuse, er uh, I mean a prescription waiting on you. We’ll see you this Thursday and Friday when the tournament kicks into high gear with FREE Chips & Queso, Corned Beef and Cabbage and our Green Gorilla waiting for you.”
Hickory Tavern’s offer of FREE Chips & Queso is valid in-restaurant only and requires the note which can be obtained anytime through Wednesday, March 15. There is a limit of one appetizer per table per visit and other restrictions may apply.
