The event will feature special guest hosts and bartenders.

A portion of each bill, including dine-in, to-go, curbside and party platter orders, will go to the Capital Area United Way’s Community Investment Fund. Donations will help support emergency assistance, youth development, job retention, and a variety of other critical services in the greater Lansing area.

I tried out their curbside service for this fundraiser, and it was worth it! I love their baked potato soup, and it was even better to enjoy it on the couch while watching Grey’s Anatomy! 🙂

I’ve only eaten at a Bennigan’s once and that was back in Peoria five years ago. Wasn’t impressed and never went back. I think it cost me $10 for a burger and fries five years ago and that’s what turned me off.

Yeah, it’s pretty comparable to the other chains, but I do love their baked potato soup and also the Monte Cristo. They have a few other irish-inspired items, but I doubt they compare to Dublins or the Curraugh (sp?). They have an e-club that has a decent deal once in awhile. I think my latest coupon for $5.99 burgers and fries on Wednesdays, with a required drink purchase.
