Awesometown Loves Chick-fil-A
The sunsets are sure pretty in Awesometown, but we're not sure how awesome Valencia really is. Considering that people actually are camping out waiting for the opening of a Chick-fil-A, these people seem awesomely bored. Or maybe they are the smartest people around -- depends on how you look at it. The first 100 people in line get 52 free sandwiches. No, no, not all at once. They get a free sandwich each week for a year.
"It was bananas," exclaimed Juliet Mothershed who snapped these photos while going for a run this morning. She seemed perplexed, even with the free sandwich deal in play. "It's just chicken and pickles!"
The Chick-fil-A opens tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. It can be found on Magic Mountain.
