The August 1st,2012 FR Chick-Fil-A Posts and Pics Thread
self | Aug 1st | self

Posted on 08/01/2012 5:45:01 AM PDT by musicman

IMHO, since this is a very important day of activism to show support for Chick-Fil-A and traditional marriage, I thought this thread could be used for FReeper reports and pics from their visits to Chick-Fil-A's around the country since there probably won't be much "positive" coverage from the LSM.

FReepers could post their experiences and pics and maybe even "counter protest" pics. Folks should maybe remember to bring a camera (cell phone) to take pics with just in case something confrontational happens.

Go FR and Chick-Fil-A!!

My daughter has been using up a bunch of gas driving to her summer job at Chick-fil-A (20 minutes away). So I needed to get gas this morning & decided to hit CFA first thing.

This was my first CFA breakfast. Spicy chicken and biscuit w/ hash browns. Excellent biscuit & the juicy, spicy chicken was almost to hot to eat right away. Kinda wish I had bought 2 sandwiches.

My wife & I are planning to go there for lunch around 1pm.

I’m planning to pick up dinner for my kids in the 4:30-ish timeframe. I’ll have my camera, in case Monroe’s handful of homogoofballs show up, and I’m prepared to engage in Mockery.

78 miles one way to the nearest Chik-Fil-a. Maybe I’ll buy a t-shirt online.

I saw pictures on another site which showed McDonalds, Wendy’s, and KFC were supporting Chick-fil- A. Does anyone know if this is nationally?

Same here, an hour away. But did stop in Friday when I had to go into the city. It was crowded and 4 of 5 customers said they were there out of support.

Woohoo, Cruz served up CF for a victory bash yesterday!

I’m in the same boat as you, at least for the next couple weeks. There is a CFA opening near me on the 16th.

But I did stop at CFA for dinner last Friday. It was my first time, but it won’t be my last.

The online store has some neat stuff for sale for those who want to show their support for Chick-Fil-A but due to dietary or distance problems can not participate.

If possible, a few things:

1) Please try to bring a camera for crowd pictures.

2) If you know any elderly or disabled veterans who can’t come, offer to bring them take-out, if their diets permit. (Of course this applies to other elderly or disabled as well. A good chance they will love the treat.)

3) Patriotic and Tea Party accessories are a fashion plus.

4) Bring a smile, and a cheery and patient frame of mind. The Chick-fil-A workers have been putting in a LOT of overtime for two weeks now, and are pretty tired and stressed, so be kind.

5) Remember that while there might be protestors today, they are planning their major protest on the 3rd (Friday), so if you want to support Chick-fil-A against them, it would be good to show up then as well.

We're too busy tonight -- daughter is performing in a concert -- but as a matter of principle we did go to the local Chick-fil-A for dinner last night!

It might be interesting. The restaurant is 1/2 mile from Columbia's Best Kept Secret: a proctology clinic that specializes in repairing homos' busted butts.

But I suspect CFA will merely be insanely crowded like it always is. ;-)

Good post!! Here is the menu link with food choices and nutritional info. The nutritional info page is one of the best I’ve ever seen as it calculates a “running total” of multiple meal items so you can quickly know how many calories, carbs, fat etc, that you would be eating for your meal.

The menu:

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Food/Menu

...and after you have chosen you food selections..

The Nutritional counter (Meal Calculator):

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Food/Meal

Slide your mouse over the left side food choices and pick your food and the right side calculator will total it up!!

I’m in Connecticut with the closest CFA in Paramus, NJ which I cannot get to.

Someone eat an extra sandwich for me, please. Maybe some waffle fries too.

Thanks

I went there for breakfast this morning and told the manager why. He was appreciative.

I have to tell this story: About twelve years ago, the top partner in the internaltional consulting firm I worked for in Atlanta, an obviously liberal man from South Africa, launched into a tirade in a management meeting about how "Christian companies" were hypocrits... "except for Chik-Fil-A: that's that one company that lives what it preaches." That impressed me that even he could see that the CF-A corporate culture was real.

Not long after, I was out of work due to a nationwide RIF of many of us new employees. Finding a job was difficult in the aftermath of the dotcom economy bubble, and I was feeling a little down. On a whim I decided to send CF-A a resume and letter describing that incident and explaining why I would like to be considered if there were any openings. Truett Cathy personally responded to me with a nice note and a signed autobiography and had a very nice manager call me and almost apologize that they had a small department did not have any positions available.

I've been in big business a long time. I've been a general counsel and CAO for a prospreous company and have been in several others. I have advised and counselled successful and wealthy people. And I can say positively that no other CEO of a major company would display that type of kindness to a total stranger. Nobody.

According to Obama, the Cathey’s didn’t build that business. Someone else did that.
That someone else might be gay.
So if someone is refusing to eat at Chick-Fil-A, it’s because they hate gay people.

We had opportunities to meet Truett Cathy in FL when he had a condo in NSB. He is a genuine, caring person who is the same whether he is on TV/presentation platform or out in the community where no one (previously) knew who he was.

Don't have a restaurant within easy reach, but I just spent three times as many dollars online for Chick-fil-A merchandise as I would have spent for food.

20 people in alternating, merging drive-thru lanes at the CFA in indigo Reston, Virginia this a.m. at 7:55. Lobby lines went to the door. Server said business was heavier than usual.

Those of you on facebook: remember to visit their page and ‘like’ it and indicate on Huckabee’s page that you’re attending his CFA appreciation day event.
