Tyler business gives out free appetizers, daiquiri samples to fully vaccinated customers

To qualify for the free appetizer or free sample of a daiquiri, you must be fully vaccinated. A photo ID and vaccination card are required to redeem the free treats.

Esteen, owner of Flavors Daiquiri Cafe in Tyler, was inspired by this issue and decided to do something to help.
