Philadelphia, May 21, 2014 – Chickie’s and Pete’s, the Philadelphia-area sports bar and restaurant chain kicked off Memorial Day weekend by offering a “toll-free” ride on the Atlantic City Expressway for families headed to the Jersey Shore.  Chickie’s and Pete’s joined Sportsradio 94 WIP and the South Jersey Transportation Authority to kick off a special “100 Days of Summer” promotion on Friday, May 23 at the Frank S. Farley Service Plaza (Mile Post 21) on the Atlantic City Expressway.  The afternoon event featured giveaways, special guests, free food, and safety demonstrations by several New Jersey transportation agencies to ensure a safe and memorable summer at the shore.

As part of the promotion, Chickie’s and Pete’s  paid all eastbound tolls on the AC Expressway at the Egg Harbor Toll Plaza from 5 to 6pm.  A portion of the proceeds from every order of Crabfries® sold at the Jersey Shore this summer will be donated to the police departments in Longport, Margate, Atlantic City, and Ventnor to help with the purchase of police K-9 units.
