"We’ll take care of everything you need for this 12-hour event including food, shelter and entertainment," Chick-fil-A states.
The restaurant will give away three chick-n-minis to customers and there is no purchase necessary.
The forecast calls for rain and chilly temperatures in New York City this weekend, but that's probably not going to stop a few hundred people from staying out all night on Friday. On Saturday, the city's first Chick-fil-A opens for business, and as fans of this Atlanta-based chicken chain know, every time it opens a new restaurant, the first 100 customers on line get free food for a year.
Before storming over to the new location, at 37th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, take note of the special rules for the opening promotion.
Any active duty member of the military or retired veteran with a military ID or proof of service, along with their immediate family members, will receive their choice of a free entrée.
Choices include the Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, Spicy Sandwich, eight-count Nuggets or three-count Chick-n-Strips™. The event will include family-friendly activities and a guest appearance from Phil Davis, MMA Fighter!
