Red Lobster offers free pizza for Lobster Day
Red Lobster is offering free Lobster and Langostino Pizza to its customers on United States National Lobster Day, today, 25 September.
Customers who purchase two adult entrees can receive a free pizza, which is topped with Maine lobster, Norway lobster, and langostino, as well as mozzarella cheese and basil.
Several other restaurants are also getting involved in celebrating the holiday, which is actually held twice annually in the U.S.
The Luke’s Lobster chain is offering USD 14.00 (EUR 11.88) lobster rolls for one week only to celebrate the holiday, as well as the company’s ninth birthday.
And Red Hook Lobster Pound in New York City is also offering its famous lobster dinner with complimentary beer or wine for USD 25 (EUR 21.23) all this week. The dinner includes Maine lobster, potatoes, corn, and slaw.
The eateries are all celebrating National Lobster Day, which the U.S. Senate declared as a national holiday for the fourth time in 2018, with the resolution authored by Senators Angus King and Susan Collins of Maine.
“Lobsters are an economic force in coastal Maine communities and have supported the livelihoods of generations … [and have] become a Maine icon, with an international reputation that plays an important role in attracting millions of visitors to our state each summer,” Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement. “We’re proud that the Senate unanimously passed this resolution honoring not only the lobster, but the thousands of Mainers who work day-in and day-out to harvest, cook, and ship our state’s prized catch.”
In 2017, more than 110 million pounds of lobster was landed in Maine, with a value of USD 433.7 million (EUR 367.8 million).
“Lobster is important to Maine’s identity and a major driver of our economy, and we’ve preserved the population through our sustainability measures so much that we’re fishing more than enough to share nationwide,” Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative Executive Director Matt Jacobson said in a press release. “Even as the summer fades, we want people to know that our peak season is still going strong – early fall is the perfect time for restaurant diners and home cooks to enjoy fresh Maine lobster.”
