Hot on the heels of the latest tainted-beef scare comes free chicken. Like Hands on a Hard Body with a large Coke and fries, dozens of people lined up and slept out in front of a new Chick-fil-A in Phoenix.
According to the Arizona Republic, the restaurant promised 52 combo meals each to its first 100 customers—an opening-day tradition the company started in 2003. Line numbers were taken the day before, but would-be chicken sammie winners were barred from leaving the parking lot, meaning there was a whole lotta friendship-bracelet-making going on.
Presumably, customers didn’t have to eat all 52 meals in one go, especially not at 6:30 a.m. when the doors were opened.
