Free Peri-Peri Chicken for the People
Just a day after the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Weekend, Nando's continued celebration of the Grand Opening of its sparkling new Hyde Park location at 1447 E. 53rd St. with an historic give-away that would have made the civil rights icon proud; on Tuesday, January 17, students, faculty and staff who presented a valid University of Chicago ID were able to enjoy a free spicy flame-grilled 1/4 chicken, chicken sandwich, wrap or pita. January 17 will go down in the history books as the birthday of renowned Chicagoans Michelle Obama, Dwayne Wade and, yes, Al Capone. And now a new chapter is written. For Tuesday, January 17, will be the day Nando's PERi-PERi invites the University of Chicago to eat at Nando's new Hyde Park restaurant, for free. All day Tuesday, from 11am to 10pm, students, faculty and staff who present a valid University of Chicago ID can enjoy a free spicy flame-grilled 1/4 chicken, chicken sandwich, wrap, or pita.* Nando's will officially open its doors in Hyde Park-at 1447 E. 53rd Street-on Saturday, January 14. Nando's will pay it forward that day by donating 100 percent of opening-day sales to the Kenwood Academy High School in Hyde Park, to help fund college visits for students at one of the best public schools in the city.
