Nellies: freaky chickens and a party

uh ... art | Sep 9, 2005 04:07 AM

Went to Nellies again. Had the fried chicken again. Third time.
Love the chicken. But here's the thing: the menu says "half chicken".
Now, that description does leave some interpretive leeway, but
conventionally, I'd expect it to be left half or a right half. Assuming
that's what I got, then my chicken was hopping around the barnyard
with four backs, two thirds of a breast, and no thighs.

Here's the other thing: signs posted announcing that they'll be closing
at 3pm on Tuesday the 13th, reopening at 5:30 for a party celebrating
their one-year at-this-particular-location anniversary. "Customer
appreciation." Also, in big caps: FREE FOOD!, NO HOST BAR!

I'm thinking this could be a really fun time.
