      A red carpet was rolled out guiding  fathers and daughters into Chick-fil-A between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Monday during the Daddy Daughter Date Night event.

      Place mats with conversation starters for the dads were at each table with suggestions like “Tell a favorite childhood memory of yours; Share how your daughter is like her mom; Say what you love about your wife; Share a dream you have for your daughter.” (September 21, 2010, Page 1)
