Being surprised in NYC is usually not good. Being surprised at a tourist hub is usually even worse. Not this week, Chick-fil-A fans.
The fried chicken chain’s first proper location in the city won’t be open until Oct. 3, but they pulled up a food truck in front of Madison Square Garden on Seventh Avenue early this afternoon and are still giving out original fried chicken sandwiches.
Also free is a small trademark cow plush toy wearing a tiny sandwich board announcing the arrival of Chick-fil-A in lolspeak. (Internet cats learned it from the cows.)
Spray-painted signs on the sidewalks nearby announced the promotion this morning, and the truck will be out again tomorrow beginning at 2 p.m. until, presumably, the cows have to go home.
