Furloughed? Who Says There's No Such Thing as a Free Lunch & Movie
Enjoy a free lunch and movie on Beltway Plaza.
Government employees are looking at having to take furloughs in light of the sequestration, but one local mall is hoping to help them enjoy their time off.
Beltway Plaza mall announced its "Beat the Furlough" program that would offer a free lunch and movie to any government employee furloughed between now and April 29.
“We want to help those that’ve been furloughed from their jobs with a stress free day," Marc “Kap” Kapastin of Quantum Companies, the firm that manages Beltway Plaza Mall, said. "We think a free lunch and a movie will take their minds off the fact that they’ve been furloughed from their jobs."
Partipants will receive a free lunch, fruit, cookie and a movie after presenting their furlough notice from their employer stating the name and date(s) of the furlough and name of the employer to the Academy 8 Theater box office and Beltway Plaza Mall will provide coupons for a free lunch, cookie, fruit and movie.
The following restaurants are participating:
- Dominican Restaurant
- Three Brothers Restaurant
- Bun Café
- El Taco Rico
- Heavens Bakery
- Home Pretzel
- Fabulous Food
"Many of these furloughed workers have patronized Three Brothers Italian Restaurant for years, " Peter Repole of Three Brothers Italian Restaurant located in Beltway Plaza Mall, said, "and this ‘Beat the Furlough’ program represents just one of the ways we can show our support and appreciation".
