So if you've got your own picky eater (Great Uncle Gene never

weekend deal for you:
Kids 12 and under can get a free Rocket Kids meal (two mini
burgers, fries and a drink) for free if they show up dressed in
patriotic colors. The freebie is available May 28, 29 and 30 at the
Johnny Rockets restaurants at 623 E. Boughton Rd., Bolingbrook, and
at 2835 Showplace Dr., Naperville.
