A friend of mine went to Chick-Fil-A appreciation day yesterday.
He was not alone:
Holy Buckets! What a day. I had been to the University to scout out the location on Tuesday. There was no line for any of the food places on Tuesday including Chick-fil-a. There were not a lot of people there yesterday but as I looked around the tables there were Chick-fil-a packaging on about 20% of them. That was representative of the number of food outlets in Coffmann Union.
But it was a different story today! We arrived shortly before 11:30 at the UofMN. Spent $3 on parking. We got down to the lunch place where you have the choice of Panda Express, Chick-fil-a, Baja sol, Topio’s, Cranberry Farms, Greens to go, maybe some others.
There was a small line in front of Chick-fil-a when we got there. Fellow freedom-lovers were apparent in the crowd so we struck up conversations with them. One of them will hopefully send me his picture of me in front of the Chick-fil-a sign. We sat down with our DELICIOUS sandwich and waffle fries (outstanding). I watched the cashiers. There were 4 today compared to 2 yesterday. They were very busy with bag after bag of Chick-fil-a product going out the door. We left about noon and the line was out the door and around the corner. We headed for the exit and there was a swarm of freedom lovers (I recognized a couple of them in the group) coming in. We got to the elevators that led to the parking garage and a family of about 7 was getting off, saw our cups with the Chick-fil-a emblem and asked, “How do I get to that place?” pointing at our cups.
[An unnamed fellow diner] and I kept talking about the warm feeling we had along with happy taste buds and a full tummy.
Maybe I should bring Chick-Fil-A to the polls this November.
