Home Alone 2 Family Night at Ovation Brands restaurants

2 Flares Filament.io 2 Flares ×

Disclosure: We will receive a Home Alone 2 prize package like this one, thanks to Ovation Brands. Opinions shared are mine.

Over winter break, our family went to Ryan’s buffet twice….and the kids have already wondered when we can go back.  My husband always looks forward to their fried chicken (last time, he said it was the BEST).  My son double-fists the pillow soft rolls slathered in honey butter. He and I fill up on popcorn shrimp, and I adore the restaurant’s fried okra.  My daughter looks for potato soup, and usually makes a soft taco.  We all love the dessert variety, and I taught my kids how to make the perfect tip on an ice cream cone.   Through January 25, head over to an Ovation Brands restaurant on Thursday nights for an extra-special Home Alone 2 promotion! 

In case you missed December’s fun, mark your calendar for these activities:

  • January 4 – Movie Night
  • January 11 – Bandits Beware
  • January 18 – Going to the Birds
  • January 25 – You’re a Star

In case the younger crowd in your life hasn’t seen the Home Alone series, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy it together!  Ovation Brands’ portfolio of restaurants include Old Country Buffet, Ryan’s, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet and Furr’s Fresh Buffet.   You don’t have to wait for this giveaway to end to plan on a good time, though.  Thursday between 5-8 PM is family night, so kids can enjoy the interactive centers.  In addition, kids eat for $1.99 from 4 p.m. to close with the purchase of a regular-priced adult or senior meal.  That’s a serious deal, my friends.  My son is 8 years old and puts away more food than I do. 

Thanks to Ovation Brands, one lucky Savings in Seconds reader will win a prize pack that includes a Home Alone 2 DVD and 4 meal passes.  The giveaway is open to US residents age 18+; void where prohibited by law. Enter on the form below. Good luck!


Many thanks to Ovation brands for providing us with the prize pack.
