I have had numerous requests to find out what it feels and/or looks like to be out on the road visiting so many cinemas and taking so many photos.

Okay, so I only had one request from a close friend. But I'm going to tell you anyway! [Big Grin]

This is what Scott looks like when he overdoses on Chick-fil-A while Adam prepares the trip maps:
 -

That was a platter of 50 nuggets.

This is what Adam looks like when Scott is driving like a maniac, making U-turns in places where he ought not to because Adam can't read the maps:
 -

So there you have it. Life on the road with Cinematour!

Oh my -- 2-for day?!?! They don't have such a thing out here in California to my knowledge. Out here Chick-fil-A is still a delicacy. Besides... the sandwiches are overrated. It's all about the nuggets baby.

Chick-Fil-A: well-known fast food joint famous for their chicken sandwiches. Closed on Sundays.

OK, I get it now. We don't have those here in Fresno! Oh, my gosh! A CHAIN STORE that doesn't exist in Fresno?!?! There will be civil unrest once this gets out! (To borrow Scott Neff's phrase, Fresno is "Shopping Center Fantastic". People here ADORE chain restaurants/stores for some reason)

Aren't I a silly! Now I see Adam has provided a link to the Chick-Fil-A website in his post! So that's what that blue text is for!! [Big Grin]

Most Chick-Fil-As are in the south, IE Georgia.

Using the handy restaurant locator, I see the nearest Chick-Fil-A is in San Luis Obispo! (Or as they say on ABC's Dragnet, SAINT Louis Obispo) Hm... They DO have a really nice drive-in in SLO...

What kind of fast-food place closes on Sundays?

We don't even have electricity on weekends way up north here and our fast-food places are still open!

Truett Cathy, the owner/founder of Chick-Fil-A, is VERY religious. As a matter of fact, one rumor I've heard is that they do not hire anyone who's not a Southern Baptist. Of course, many religious zealots feel that if they work on Sunday, they'll rot in damnation for life.

Sounds like I'll be eating what the Canadians call "PFK" for me...

We had one in Bakersfield at an indoor mall for a while, but it didnt last long. It was the only mall business not open on Sunday (this is not unprecedented. The Valley Plaza stores were always closed on Sundays back in the 60's. Only the theatre and Wyatt's Cafeteria wewre open Sundays.

PFK (I think I'm wrong, but the letters are right):
(P)rit - Fried
(F)rit - Chicken
(K)entucky - Kentucky

You get the idea. [Big Grin]
