    Celebrate Your Administrative Professionals at Ling & Louie’s!

    What would we do without administrative professionals? They’re a valuable part of our business. Often, though, they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

    Ling decided it was time to celebrate the administrative professionals and wanted to give back. Why not celebrate administrative professional week Monday, 4/24/17 – Friday, 4/28/17 at Ling & Louie’s and show your special employees how much you care and appreciate them!

    While you’re at Ling & Louie’s in Boise or Scottsdale during the week of 4/24 – 4/28 just post your picture celebrating at Ling & Louie’s, use the hashtag #LLAdminWeek and you’ll receive a special bounce-back certificate. Plus you’ll be entered into our grand prize drawing: An office Happy Hour for up to 10 people! (a $200 value, to be announced Saturday, 4/29).

    We have one of the best Happy Hours around that runs from 3pm-7pm Monday through Friday. Ling & Louie’s offers $3 off ALL signature cocktails such as Frozen Thai Mai and Ling’s Ginger-Lime Margarita; $2 off ALL glasses of wine; and $1 off ALL bottled and draft beer. You’ll also want to take advantage of our food specials during Happy Hour such as $7 Mongolian Flatbread and $5 Veggie Rolls.

    Or how about lunch? While cards, flowers, and chocolates are nice, imagine how excited your administrative professional will be when they’re treated to one of our delicious appetizers such as Crab Wontons, Lettuce Wraps, or our Desert Island Poke Bowl? We have plenty of sushi options too along with soups and salads plus fresh items straight from the wok such as Orange Peel, Cashew Stir-Fry, and Kung POW!

    You might be curious about the history of this holiday. It started due to a shortage of administrative professionals during World War II as a result of a declining birth rate after the Depression. The National Secretaries Association was founded in 1942 to recognize these administrative professionals and their contributions to the economy. After several name changes, the organization became the Administrative Professionals Day in 1998.

    At Ling & Louie’s, we’re proud to help all of you hard-working professionals celebrate!
