From the inbox: Aurora's Chick-fil-A franchise, which, all due respect to NBC Feast, is actually the Chicagoland area's second location*, is set to open September 16 at 4435 Fox Valley Center Dr..

To mark the occasion, Chick-fil-A will continue its tradition at these openings of giving away a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals to the first 100 adults in line with proper identification. as you can see from the photo above of folks waiting for a Chick-fil-A to open in Fort Collins, CO (and here's a guess that they have Coors in those tents instead of New Belgium), these become events.

The line for the opening will form 6 a.m. September 15. The meting out of the free meals is more skull crushing frustrating than the Bowl Championship series ranking system. suffice it to say that more than 100 folks will likely be on hand to eat chicken sandwiches. So if you're looking for a chance to score free meals, you might want to pack up your tents and bedrolls now. If there's a gust of wind coming from the north, that's Marcus cutting his vacation short to get in line.

*The other Chicagoland Chick-fil-A location is in Racine, Wi at Regency Mall (5812 Durand Ave.).
