Got in line at 12:40, and I’m just finishing up my meal (@1:35). About 8 protesters are on the sidewalk behind the entrance. Fries were not, chicken sandwich was cold, but I’m sure that’s due to the crazy nature of the day.

I’ve never been to Chick-Fil-A before so did not have chance to try everything. Ordered the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. I was good. No fries, trying to lose another 10lb by mid-Sept. Already lost 10lb. and fast food is not generally helpful. Wanted to support the cause.

I got there @ 12:15. Line was out the door along the building to the patio - about 75’. The drive up line snaked thru the parking lot and out to First St. Chick-Fil-A employees were out in the parking lot directing traffic. Folks in line were local employees from the near by semiconductor/Hi-tech companies.

I happen to be walking up just as 5 Rainbow Men showed up with a pro level video camera and mike. One guy was wearing a hat with a plastic trout. WTH? The first thing I hear from these clowns, " O.K. who wants a xxxxmeat sandwich".

Obviously, mentally disturbed individuals. They milled around a few minutes then left to get reinforcements, I guess.

I'll come back for food when the lines go down.

They had a lot of coverage on the local news last night showing all the folks camped out there, they had a special for the first 100 customers, they get a free sandwich a week for one year.. If I’d only known.. wifey told me about the free thingy.. we’re going to go on a recon mission there soon if we can make it by the wendy’s and arby’s. ;-). The online menu looks good,,

Thanks for your suggestions. I’ll try some of them when Chick Fil A re-opens in New York City after the summer.

In this part of the country, there is ONLY ONE Chick Fil A and they happen to be located in New York University’s public cafeteria, which is closed during the summer.

The speaker of the NYC legislature, Christine Quinn ( who is gay and recently “married” to her partner), is trying to force NYU to evict them for what the CEO said.

Thus far, NYU has not capitulated ( hopefully they won’t, otherwise, I will have to drive to NJ just to be able to savor your recommendations ).

I've loved Chick fil A since the 70’s! Long before they became news. On their website they sell a small book called, “It's easier to raise boys than mend men” and it will really tell you what kind folks the Cathy's are.

I love their classic sandwich and their nuggets with their BBQ sauce. The Polynesian sauce is good too. Fruit cups instead of waffle fries if you are so inclined and great lemonade and peach shakes.
