For those that missed my First Taste of Arizona's first Raising Cane's, the Louisiana-based chicken fingers chain which opened in September at 2715 West Peoria Avenue (1-17 & Peoria Ave), you can read all about it here.
For those in the know, the grand opening of a second location of the love child of Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, and T.G.I. Friday's will happen at 10 a.m., this Friday, December 16, at at 4325 East Thomas Road (44th Street and Thomas) in the Arcadia area.
And get this: the first 104 people in line snag a free chicken fingers box combo meal and a chance at winning a year of free chicken fingers. (Which kinda seems like waaaay too many chicken fingers, but hey, maybe you could share.)
For some reason, ASU's Sparky will be on hand as will Santa -- and you can get your pic taken with him (Santa, not Sparky, but probably Sparky, too) if you make a donation to ChildHelp in the form of money or a toy.
