I wonder if that offer is transferable, should those who waited outside in winter advisory temperatures develop pneumonia and die. Did we learn nothing from William Henry Harrison?
Germs make you sick not the temperature outside, so I think they will be safe
The article states the 26th person was awarded free burritos for a year twice. Welcome to the department of redundancy department.
Funny, I think I will take the "no" burrito deal for an entire year for staying outside the store for an entire year. Thats a win win offer.
The winner will be the looser if Freebirds goes out of business before the year is out.
But the winner's pants will be tighter if they do stay in business.
Frostbite to the fingers and toes is not worth 10 years of free burritos.
They're nothing to brag about - quality wise. It's just Chipotle, but more expensive. All the employees are clearly KU students, everyone speaks English and they promote binge drinking. Yeah to free burritos!
***Made the mistake of going there yesterday. Did so out of curiosity b/c people won't shut up about it.
P.S: don't hate me b/c I like -quality food- at a reasonable price. Or just good food in general...which would exclude most restaurant chains.
I was indicating differences between FreeBirds and Chipotle. Didn't necessarily mean that one was 'bad'. They intend to give jobs to students, but that doesn't mean their food or service is high in quality. If they start offering hours til 3am, their sole purpose is to provide drunks with food.
They used this PR stunt to attract customers plus give you a discount on beer if you sign up for stuff. Free/ $1 beer + free food does not equal good food.
Oh and if you're vegetarian/vegan and/or gluten-free, don't expect too great of food.
What ever happened ro flag-pole sitting and swallowing gold fish???
The younger generation is going to the dogs.
I wonder how much Freebirds paid these guys for their publicity stunt? Because this was obviously some staged P.R. B.S.
the husband is a medical student...
Looks to me like a group of folks having some good, clean fun. Good for them!
This event was good practice for the winners. For anyone eating a big burrito every week for the next 12 months, spending one night a week sleeping outdoors is a very neighborly thing to do. If you know what I mean.
They should transfer the prize to someone less fortunate who would really appreciate the food.
