Tonight is the night...

video brought to my attention my BroncoCountry's BroncoBob stand in a line ( pitch a tent, fire up the portable heater) for Buffalo Wild Wings Grand Opening tomorrow. What is at stake? Free Wings for a year according to the promotion, and one free Miller beer, when the Bar/Grill opens tomorrow. I know the temperatures might detract some from the "Black Friday"-like gathering, however I am sure in today's economy, there will be some who would love free wings for a year and are willing to stick around all night. Today at 3:30pm, I stopped by and asked the manager what time he was expecting people to start lining up and he just dismissed the question, arrogantly, like I was fly buzzing around his soup. He must have been busy, which is completely understandable with the opening tomorrow. He briefly mentioned 1)that some might show up during the night & 2)and that it is the first 100 people that show up- but he answered as he typed away on his laptop in one of the booths. I decided not to interrupt his day further and left. I guess I expected a standard answer like, "Well in other states, the openings have had some guests start to queue up about 12 hours before the door opens". Some kind of answer symbolizing that he realized how many people would be coming over to BWW. No such of the two front door hostess was cute and it appeared there were some testers there attempting to see how the food/beers/service was going over. Decent size bar/eating area.

My big question is the location? The patio faces Eagle Road, the busiest road in all of the state of Idaho and while the location might be prime for visibility, the patio stares out at traffic ( same question for the bar down the road called Cheerleaders).

It is being advertised that Red Bull will be helping with those that stand in line by dishing out free Red Bull, while coffee or hot chocolate might be more appropriate since the weather is supposed to dip lower than 20 degrees over night.

Why do I even care about this opening? It is the future home of the unofficial Boise State Letter of Intent Signing Day party being hosted by KTIK 1350 AM. Clink linky to see their advertising for the event. See you folks there.....
