You might be a restaurant superfan if…
You’ve ever camped out in a parking lot overnight to be among the first customers at a new restaurant opening.
You’ve ever driven hundreds of miles just to eat at your favorite restaurant.
You’ve created and maintain a website dedicated to a favorite restuarant or menu item.
An Associated Press story on Inforum today details the lenghts to which restaurant superfans are willing to go to prove their devotion.
The article reminded me of the October, 2002, Krispy Kreme opening in Fargo when then North Dakota first lady Mikey Hoeven did the “Glaze Craze” dance with Trollwood Performing Arts School students. It was a party in the parking lot. People even camped out for free donuts and T-shirts before the donut shop opened.
Of course, that restaurant closed five years later, so its fans must not have been super enough.
If you think you’re a restaurant superfan, we want to hear about it.
We know from past posts that restuarant fans are vocal and opinionated. But how far would you go for your favorite meal or if say, SONIC Drive-In, finally did decide to open in Fargo?
