I’ve always gone out of my way for those seasoned fries, light and fluffy biscuits and sweet tea, so I couldn’t miss the opening, either.

“They’re giving away free meals,” I explained.
”And,” said another 20-something guy, with a bit of a drawl, “it’s Bojangles’.”
Quite right. Most of us probably would have paid.
