Chick-fil-A restaurants in Santee, La Mesa to host `Daddy-Daughter Date Night’ on Feb. 7

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the 12 Chick-fil-A restaurants in San Diego County, including the two East County restaurants at 9418 Mission Gorge Road in Santee and 8200 Fletcher Parkway in La Mesa, will host a “Daddy-Daughter Date Night” for fathers and daughters from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 7.

“One of Chick-fil-A’s goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with,” said Kyle Streck, Santee Chick-fil-A owner-operator. “We understand the importance of father-daughter relationships and want to encourage local dads to take a break from busy schedules, enjoy their daughter’s company and have fun.”

Activities will include table-side service, dinner, dessert, entertainment and a flower for each daughter. Each of the restaurants will celebrate the occasion in its own way with some rolling out a red carpet and others with limo rides. A tray liner with every meal will include questions and topics to help get the dinner conversation started, as well as a take-home booklet called “Continuing the Conversation” that offers suggestions for future father-daughter events.

Seatings are available every hour and reservations are required. Seating is limited. Cost is $25 per father-daughter pair. Additional children can be added to the reservation for $10 per child. To RSVP a seating time, visit www.cfasandiego.com/dddn/.
