National Mac & Cheese Day is Sunday, July 14 — a holiday with no specific significance other than to encourage people to eat macaroni and cheese (unlike National Donut Day, which is in fact to celebrate the role donuts played as a comfort food during World War I). 

Thankfully, requesting that people eat macaroni and cheese is not a hard ask. And Keystone Bar & Grill and the Mac Shack are offering some super special one-day-only cheesy creations to celebrate. 

All three Keystone locations — Covington (313 Greenup St.), Hyde Park (3384 Erie Ave.) and Clifton (249 Calhoun St.) — will be serving mac and cheese chicken and waffles. That is waffles made of macaroni and cheese with a chunk of breaded chicken, covered in a sweet and spicy syrup. If you aren't ready for that monster, they will also have chili mac and cheese fries. Both items are just available for Mac & Cheese Day and are not available on the normal Keystone menu.

But if you want to go traditional and still honor the dairy noodles, every Keystone menu mac is only $7.14 all day long.

Head to Keystone's offshoot the Mac Shack in Clifton (249 Calhoun St.) or Green Township (5655 Harrison Ave.) to grab their Cheeseburger in Paradise mac: burger meat plopped on top of a pile of Lovin’ Spoonful macaroni and cheese, and then topped with lettuce, tomato, Heinz 57 sauce, french fries and a pickle spear.

They will also be serving all menu macs for just $7.14 all day long.

As a bonus, all Keystone and Mac Shack locations (except Mac Shack Clifton) will be hiding a golden ticket under a skillet of mac and cheese to award one lucky customer a free year of macaroni and cheese.
