Salvatore’s Restaurants offers “Feel Better Boston” Special Help Fight Flu

Wire Service ImageIt’s the exciting New Year, but many Bostonians have welcomed 2013 stuck at home with a runny nose, a bad cough and a high fever. That’s right, the flu season has unfortunately struck Boston, prompting Mayor Thomas M. Menino to declare a Public Health Emergency. Some may be panicking while others may brush it off, but whatever the case, have no fear because Salvatore’s Restaurants recently launched a “Feel Better Boston” takeout special to ease your symptoms. With a kit including a bowl of chicken soup, freshly baked bread, your choice of Minute Maid orange juice, ginger ale or water and a pack of tissues, you and/or loved ones can “kick the flu to the curb” tweeted @SalvatoreBOS.
