Chick-fil-A Hosts Mother-Son Medieval Date Night

Boys in select markets probably hiding under their beds

What boy doesn't dream of putting on some tights and taking his mother on a medieval-themed date in public? Enough men and boys do, apparently, for Chick-fil-A to be hosting a medieval-themed, mother-son date night.

Local Chick-fil-A operators have listed their plans for the "Date Knight" on the event website, which has the questionable domain name of One could be forgiven for assuming this was a joke, or even a promotion for the return of Arrested Development on Netflix, because it seems like just the sort of thing Lucille and Buster might be up for if they wanted a snack after this year's Motherboy dance. But ARL Now reports that "Date Knight" will occur May 6 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 51 Washington, D.C.-area Chick-fil-A units.

"We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage area moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their son’s company over a meal and have fun!" Chick-fil-A franchisee Erik Amick said to

The food will not be free, but the special "Date Knight" activities will come at no cost. Well, no financial cost.

"During this special medieval-themed evening, moms and their sons are encouraged to spend some time together while they enjoy dinner, great conversation and several special activities," the company said in a press release. "Every Mother-Son pair will also receive a place mat with fun questions and topics to get the conversation started, and a take-home booklet that provides ideas for future dates and questions that both moms and their sons can ask each other."

Interested mother-son pairs can make reservations online.
