I live in a town where the the biggest thing is always eating at the newest restaurant. For weeks after a new eatery opens, it is thronged with excited customers. It makes sense when the crowd surges towards the new Olive Garden or Mama Lucia's. However, it's a little more confusing when you watch people wait in a line around the building for the Checkers. From the Opinion page in yesterday's Newnan Times-Herald:
DINING CHOICES: We must be starving for something new. A Checkers opens in Newnan and the lines are 30 minutes long. Don't you think we need new dining choices in Newnan?
According the the Coweta County Convention and Visitor's Bureau, there are 168 eateries in this county. You could eat out at a different location every night for almost 6 months and never visit the same restaurant twice! (Granted, you would be eating at a Waffle House once a month, but at least they would be different Waffle Houses!) But, no, we'd rather stand in line for Checkers' Baconzilla® and then write into the paper to complain about the wait.
Checkers, enjoy it while it lasts. In 2 months you won't be the new greasy spoon on the block, and Newnan will abandon you like we did Carabba's, Chili's, and China Garden. Yum. Tastes like closing.
