Hooters wants you to play hooky during March Madness – and as an extra incentive, they’re offering a coupon for a free appetizer when you come in on March 17 or 18. When you get to the website, you’ll enter your info and a special personalized coupon will be generated, as well as a “doctor’s note” excusing you from work. To receive the free appetizer, you must purchase at least one beverage. Choose from free cheese sticks, onion rings or fried pickles.

Hooters is at 5350 Southwest Blvd. in Fort Worth.
