They say if life is a cookie, then friends are the chocolate chips. IKEA also recognizes that friends bring us joy, and with that in mind, they've designated Sat., Jan. 14 as BYOF Day, as in Bring Your Own Friend Day. You and your friend will be treated to free breakfast, two-for-one lunch specials, food samples and recipe cards, as well as wellness seminars, chair massages from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, design advice and more. The company will donate $1 to Save the Children for each friend invited via IKEA's Facebook page, up to $50,000. There you can also RSVP, print coupons for breakfast and more.
IKEA's Bring Your Own Friend Day, Sat., Jan. 14, 9:30 a.m., IKEA New Haven, 450 Sargent Dr., New Haven, (203) 865-4532, facebook.com/IKEAUSA.
