LEXINGTON, Ky., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bridge is making a comeback, with more and more Americans taking up the game.  And Fazoli's is continuing its commitment to Seniors by recognizing the social card game with a refreshing offer.  Every Wednesday in June from 2 p.m.-5 p.m., Fazoli's will offer members of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), the nation's largest bridge league representing over 167,000 members and 3,200 clubs in the United States, a free Italian Lemon Ice with any entrée purchase.  To take advantage of this offer, the bridge players simply need to state that they are there to play bridge. The members are also welcome to stay and play a social game of bridge at the restaurant.  Offer is good at all participating Fazoli's restaurants.  

Jon Quinn, Fazoli's Vice President of Marketing, believes Fazoli's is a perfect place for bridge players. "We have the perfect environment for bridge players, with a relaxing dining area that's great for both a sit down meal and a game of bridge," said Quinn.  "And with free unlimited breadsticks and our special June offer, Fazoli's may become the favorite hangout for bridge players."

Recently, Fazoli's rolled out a special program for all of its senior guests.  The program, called Club 62, allows seniors age 62 or over to pay just $4 on Wednesdays.  The offer is for any Club 62 Menu item.  In addition, small drinks on any day of the week are just $1. Seniors can take advantage of these discounts by obtaining a Club 62 card, which is available at participating Fazoli's locations.
