President’s day usually means a holiday with no school for students. In Laredo, Friday is also taken off. Why, you ask? Well, too much party after the Washington’s Birthday Youth parade this past Thursday and final preparations for the big parade held this past Saturday interferes with schooling, I guess. School districts can pick and choose which holidays will be honored to fit into the overall schedule, it is just that this tiny festival done (er… or overdone) in Laredo kind of throws things just a bit.
Regardless, it is what it is but that doesn’t mean we won’t see plenty of President’s Day mattress sales and all kinds of other sales.
One neat one that was shared by reader, Sue – our friendly Newcomers Club information guru, is by Chili’s. “Kids Rule” is this Monday at Chili’s so you can feed your brood under 12 for nada (well, only 2 kids free per each adult entreé).
From Chili’s Facebook page:

Good deal for those with under 12 kids – if the Laredo Chili’s is participating. I’ll be at home burning something on the stove.
