Recently the Mr. and I decided to try something new. Everyone raves about Franklin Barbecue, a popular restaurant on the East side, but we had never tried it. The problem is that they sell out quickly so if you want to actually get food you have to arrive early and wait in line. This has always seemed absurd to me but when we were discussing it, it suddenly seemed like a fun idea.
So we both dropped the boys off at school and headed down to stand in line. We got there around 8:30am and there was already one man in line ahead of us. C and G hung out with him while I did some work from my iPad. The place opens at 11am so we had some waiting to do.
It went by pretty quickly, once people started showing up we made some friends in line. Unbeknownst to me one of my friends works there so I got to catch up with him a little bit too. Once we got inside we decided to have the full experience so we got t-shirts, beer coozies (we have a collection) and a huge pile of food. We ate ourselves silly then headed home to sleep it off. We had a great time and loved the food, but I think it’s an experience we only need to have once.
