Don't these people have 500 channels of shitty cable TV?
It may be that no city gets more excited than Bakersfield when a new chain restaurant opens. A spokesman for Famous Dave’s, Peter DeYoung, said nearly 1,500 guests were on hand Monday, which ranked first or second in the chain’s 165-location history across 35 states.
Kathleen Cisneros was there. She and her husband had been comparing rib joints lately, happened to drive by, remembered Famous Dave’s advertisements and decided to stop in.
“We said, you know, might as well try it,” she said. Because of the crowd, however, they decided to take their orders to go.
Streets of Bakersfield, indeed.
