Across the street, a steady stream of motorists encircled a Chick-fil-A, in a double-lane drive-thru to snag the Georgia-based restaurant’s fried chicken sandwiches and waffle potato fries. “We like both,” said Joe Gonzales of Littleton, who with his wife waited 20 minutes this week to get cheeseburgers and fries from the In-N-Out drive-thru while the Chick-fil-A also did a brisk business. Thus the stage is set in Denver’s south suburbs for a battle royale between two favorites of the fast-food fanatics, each of which regularly deploys a team of workers to take orders and process payment right from customers’ car windows. But it could also spell traffic management problems for this fast-growing city, and the age-old … [Read more...] about In-N-Out and Chick-fil-A poised for drive-thru duel on the streets of Lone Tree
advertisement advertisement advertisement In the first-ever season of Sesame Street , in 1970, cast member Bob McGrath appeared in a memorable sketch where he receives a delivery from his local grocer, a grumpy blue muppet. “Did you get everything I ordered?” McGrath asks. “No,” comes the reply, but he’s helpfully supplemented the delivery with other fresh veggies.

'If policy-makers hold the lives of animals to be more significant than the welfare of a human populace, I can't believe that they're likely to do anything progressive for India.' Almost 17 years ago, Varsha Bhosle took on the anti-beef lobby on these pages. The day after Maharashtra banned the consumption and sale of beef, we repost Varsha's column, which is still being discussed on the Internet all these years later. B hosle is still in Opposition mode, thanks to Bharatiya Janata Party corporator Parag Alvani getting hives over "our children" being lured to non-vegetarianism by Ronald McDonald. Before taking off, let me make one thing clear -- excepting pizza, I detest all Western fast-food. Personally, I'll be glad to see KFC being replaced by a Singh's Tandoori Chicken.
