Hundreds (or thousands?) of chicken wings for free?

To what level must a restaurant honor its coupons?

A restaurant has published a coupon in a weekly paper here for ten free chicken wings for Monday. It does not say one coupon per person or table, nor that the offer can't be combined with any other offers (the restaurant offers two-for-one wing orders from 4-8 pm.) It doesn't even require a purchase on the coupon. Could I conceivably with my compatriots go in there and clean the restaurant out of its chicken wings, paying just for tax and tip? Or can a restaurant dictate the coupon terms after we arrive?

The only problem being if we do it, they may not let us come back...though they should, because it is pretty silly not to dictate the coupon terms.
