    Hello :)

    Newbee to the forum. I was hoping some of you may have a ballpark of what the dates would most likely be if free dining is offered into November, with Thanksgiving being a bit early this year...

    Thank you in advance!

    Actually Thanksgiving is later this year - Nov 28.

    I wouldn't count on Free Dining in November. They did not have it late winter/spring this year, except for bouncebacks from last year. They Did the Room/Stay/Dine promo instead. The first part of the month is pretty busy with Food & Wine, Jersey Week, Half Marathon, Veterans Day weekend.

    Thanks for that info...that's what I mean, later haha. I actually went in December of last year with Free Dining and they did have it in November of 2012 as well..I have actually gone the last 5 years and 4 of them have been free dining, I just couldn't pin point the dates from previous years...since Thanksgiving is later, I am hoping the week before will be available if they extend free dining again this year.

    Thanks again.

    We had free dining last year (2012) that started the day after Thanksgiving. It was not a bounceback offer- it was for the general public.

    Chances for Free Dining in November are still pretty high. There's usually some free dining dates that start the Friday or Saturday after thanksgiving each year. Im on my phone right now, so not looking at my calendar info at home, but FD dates will probably be Saturday after Thanksgiving through about December 6 or 7, then black out for Pop Warner week, then pick up with dates close to December 14 through December 19 or 20.

    If I remember correctly, FD was blacked out for Jersey week the last few years. We just came down a day or two early to get FD before the blackout dates. And hoping for the same this year too or we won't be going!:scared:

    I'm talking about this year - 2013. They offered free dining to the general public for late winter/early spring in 2011 & 2012 but not this year. They offered the stay/play/dine promo instead.

    Last year they offered fd Jersey week and through veterans day. But usually,Jersey week is blacked out but I don't see any reason for them not to include veterans day. It's not considered a major holiday and it falls after the half marathon and food and wine ends.
