Do you support the “Mental Recession” Meal Deal or the “Diversity Celebration” Combo?
September 11, 2008—(Seattle) With the upcoming election on everyone’s mind, Atlas Foods is giving you the opportunity to vote with your stomach—and get a squealing deal (hold the lip stick). Our slow-smoked, pulled pork sandwich served with fries and a beer for just $7.75 is your ticket to show your colors. Cast your vote during dinner only at Atlas Foods by ordering either the “Mental Recession” Meal Deal or the “Diversity Celebration” Combo any day between now and election night. We’ll be keeping track of which ‘wich is winning on the big board in the restaurant and on the Atlas Website. Be sure to join us at the restaurant on Tuesday, Nov. 4th, when we’ll all be gathered around the big board to find out who has won this pork poll.
The “Mental Recession” Meal Deal: An American classic, down home pulled pork on a hoagie bun, just like what W. would want. Each plate comes piled with an Alaska-sized portion of Freedom Fries. You know the recession is in your head when you see that this deal comes with a frosty beer of your choice—but we have to apologize, we don’t carry Bud. $7.75
The “Diversity Celebration” Combo: Beer, Fries and Pork Unite: Born of small-town values, this humble pulled pork sandwich pairs with fries and beer for a meal even those not helped by Bush tax cuts can afford. Fries are piled high, and in keeping with the message of change, are trans-fat free. Inspiring hope to all, the microbrew could sell for more, but turns down greater profit for the good of the entire meal. $7.75
The mind reels.
