Applebee’s restaurants in Edison and Woodbridge will commemorate Independence Day by inviting kids and their families to come celebrate in the neighborhood — and they are offering free kids’ meals all day long.

Families who dine at Applebee’s on July 4 will receive up to two free kids’ meals with each adult entrée purchased. The free meals are valid for children age 12 and under, dine-in only, on any Applebee’s kids’ menu entrée.

Fire N Ice Lounge, 583 Ford Ave., Fords section of Woodbridge, will offer free salsa lessons from dance master Benji 8-9 p.m. every Saturday. Fire N Ice is a Moroccan themed restaurant and lounge that features flavored hookahs, along with dinner and dance shows every Friday and Saturday with traditional belly dancers and Bollywood performers.
