ORLANDO, Fla., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The college hoops tourney is a seasonal ailment that afflicts millions of Americans every March. And according to a survey conducted by the job outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., in just the first two days of the tournament it will cost U.S. employers more than $134 million through lost productivity as a result of employees watching games at work. The good news is that this condition is easily treatable, but it requires a day of rest at a place with plenty of smoked wings and HD televisions. Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill is the recommended treatment center — and this year, it's offering ways for those afflicted to get out of work for a speedy recovery.
Smokey Bones, with help from its agency Brokaw Inc., created three instructional videos to assist those in need of watching college basketball to figure out ways to get out of work. Hosted by Skip Hooky, this smooth-talking slacker offers viewers surefire ways to break away for the day without retaliation from their bosses. The videos along with tourney time drink offers are posted at http://www.smokeybones.com/skip. Fans can also follow Skip's advice on Smokey Bones' Facebook and Twitter pages. Besides getting fans out of work, Smokey Bones is giving them other ways to enjoy the games. This includes a free appetizer to enjoy during the opening days of the tournament on Thursday and Friday, March 20 and 21. To take advantage of this offer, college basketball lovers simply need to be Bones Club members by March 18, signing up for free at www.smokeybones.com.
All during the tournament, Smokey Bones is encouraging fans to Instagram a picture of themselves "slam dunking" their Smokey Bones food at #bonesslam. Each tourney game day, the fan with the winning pic will receive a $25 Smokey Bones gift card. And at the end of the tournament, the person with the best "slam" will receive one "X"-cellent (wink-wink) gaming console.
Smokey Bones, the favorite choice for food, drinks, and fun, is a full-service bar and fire-grill restaurant that operates 65 locations in 17 states and employs nearly 4,000 people. For more information on Smokey Bones, visit www.SmokeyBones.com.
