Chickie’s & Pete’s Offers Free Tolls on NJ’s ACX, Free Crab Fries to Kick Off Memorial Day Weekend
Headed to the Jersey Shore on Friday? If you time your trip right, you could treat yourself to free Crab Fries and a free toll thanks to Chickie's & Pete's.
To kick off Memorial Day Weekend, this Friday is "Free Toll Friday!"
The South Jersey Transportation Authority and Chickie's & Pete's have reportedly partnered up to offer motorists incentives to travel the Atlantic City Expressway on their way to the beaches for the holiday.
For one hour, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., this Friday, May 27th, Chickie's will pick up the cost of the eastbound ACX Egg Harbor City Toll Plaza for vehicles passing through both the cash and EZ-Pass lanes, according to wooderice.com.
Earlier that day, from noon to 5 p.m., just ahead of the toll at Farley Plaza, Chickie's & Pete's will offer a free serving of its famous Crab Fries for those who stop off to say hello.
Now, those freebies may not sound like much, but at a time when we're paying astronomical gas prices, it's a pretty awesome gesture on the part of SJTA and Chickie's.
Oh, and there's one more thing. Chickie's honoring the real reason for Memorial Day Weekend: Honoring those who served. According to wooderice.com, Chickie's & Pete's has joined forces with The Patriot Fund, a non-profit organization that works to support military men and women returning from active duty with psychological, emotional, social, and financial and financial resources "as they re-enter civilian life."
