The fact that Sept. 17 is halfway to St. Patrick's Day may not mean all that much to you. (If you eat, drink and kiss like the Irish, every day might as well be St. Patrick's.)
But you might want to celebrate Sept. 17 anyhow, because Bennigan's is giving away free Monte Cristos in honor of being half a year away from beer drinkers' favorite holiday.
A Monte Crisco is a ham, turkey, Swiss and American sandwich that's battered, fried, coated with powdered sugar and served with raspberry dipping sauce.
Note: The only Bennigan's in Dallas-Fort Worth is at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
How to get a free Monte Cristo
- Go to Bennigan's on Sept. 17.
- Order an item of equal or more value.
- Then order a free Monte Cristo.
- Decide who gets your free Monte Cristo. (Do you get it? Or do you gift it to someone you're with? Dare you share it? Do you take it on the plane with you? Questions.)
"If you've never tried a Monte Cristo at Bennigan's, you're missing out on one of life's greatest indulgences," says Legendary Restaurant Brands Chairman and CEO Paul Mangiamele.
They are good.
