Well. According to the Long Beach Press-Telegram, more Chick-fil-A restaurants will be making a foray into Los Angeles County. Hallelujah!
You have no idea how much I love these sandwiches. On Monday, I told Trinity that my craving for the day was for these lovely, tangy, wonderfully simple sandwiches, but unfortunately, we were heading in the exact opposite direction of any Chick-fil-A restaurant. So I’ve been talking about them ever since at work.
It’s odd though. I remember Chick-fil-A used to have a presence in Southern California back when I was in high school, circa 1993 I think. And I remember because my high school used to have a Chick-fil-A cart every Tuesday (or something, I don’t think it was everyday). And on those days, I used to bum dollars from every person I could bum off of so I could buy a sandwich. One of those bumming opportunities helped lead me to my very first boyfriend, actually, but that wasn’t the best thing. Heh. Anyway, it seemed after that one year of having such easy access to Chick-fil-A, I didn’t have another one till I went to New Orleans – then discovered that both the Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos and the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance had Chick-fil-A in their food courts. Thus began day trips simply for the chicken sandwich.
Well, I’m long overdue for a Chick-fil-A fix – last time I had some was sometime earlier this summer, when my girl Sam (who happens to work at the PT) and I set off on a Harold-and-Kumar-like quest for the yummy sandwiches. It wasn’t at midnight though – it just took forever to get to the Long Beach Chick-fil-A from her downtown Long Beach apartment.
And, on the off-chance that some Chick-fil-A executive reads this, when considering new locations, please strongly consider the San Fernando Valley, Hollywood and Thousand Oaks (which will likely be my new shopping/dining digs when we move). Thank you!
