Outback Steak House Opens In York, Pa with A Charitable Giving Event
Can we talk about college for a minute?
Can we talk about the things we did and the place we went to take a few minutes for ourselves in the nuttiness of our studies?
I know that there were some people who went for a run to blow off steam. (That is NOT me! My philosophy is, why are you running? Is some one chasing you?)
Others would go for a drive and try and escape the projects at hand.
Still others would drown their sorrows at a bar or dance club. (Once again not me….)
What did I do?
I sat on a stool at Outback Steak house and at an entire Bloomin’ Onion and drank a diet coke with a lemon wedge. You see, Outback was in the shopping center adjacent to my apartment complex and I could walk there. Yes, when I needed a break, I walked to Outback and had a table for one, a bloomin’ onion and a diet coke. I thought for sure the diet coke was canceling out all the fried food I was eating. Sitting in the restaurant I could people watch, enjoy good food and chat with the servers as they hustled around. It was a great environment to take a mental break from my task list at home.
So you could say that Outback got me through college.
Fast forward to present day.
I live in York, Pa and the West Manchester Mall has undergone a HUGE renovation. They have literally turned the mall inside out and made it a beautiful place to shop. The renovation is not complete yet but some of the restaurants that have been added to the outer ring rode are starting to open up and I am so excited to have more dining options on this side of town.
One that I am super excited about is the soon to be opened Outback Steak house. (opening November 9) This restaurant is replacing the previous location of 2496 East Market Street. The steaks and bloomin’ onions are coming closer to me!
They will have an updated decor and theme and they are calling it ‘Modern Australia’.
Grand opening of the 380 Town Center Drive location will be Wednesday, November 9, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. To mark the official opening, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. with the York County Chamber of Commerce.
But instead of just cutting a ribbon and letting balloons fly Outback wanted to give back to the community in celebration of the new restaurant opening. They hosting a Charity Give Back event in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of York & Adams Counties. A portion of sales for the day will go directly to the organization.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country.
