If it wasn’t marked on your calendar already, take note! The second national holiday of the week is today and it sure is delicious.
National Fried Chicken day is just one among the long list of ridiculous “holidays” used as marketing techniques that we secretly love. July 6, is the day to celebrate all things poultry and the oil that fries it up.
In honor of the day, restaurants around the city are offering special deals. For instance, fast food chain Popeyes will be selling 24 cent drumsticks for 24 hours, and of course KFC will be participating with a $10 deal of six chicken pieces, nine tenders, 12 hot wings, or a bucket full of popcorn nuggets.
If you’re looking for something a bit more fancy, you could stop one of the locations of the NYC favorite, Sweetchick for their amazing fried chicken and waffles.
If you didn’t fill up enough on the 4th, today’s your chance to make it up!
