MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A nightclub in Alabama's capital city has come up with a unique theme night involving food support for needy families.

The Rose Supper Club in Montgomery will start "Food Stamp Friday" theme nights in April.

Manager Harman Wilson says the night is meant to complement the club's other theme nights, such as Fat Tuesday, Karaoke Wednesday or Thirsty Thursday.

Wilson says patrons will not be able to use their food stamps to buy alcoholic beverages. He says he hopes the novel approach will draw people to the club.

Human Resources Department spokesman Barry Sparks says the department does not approve of the promotion. He says food assistance benefits are meant to provide nourishment for hungry families.
