Fill Up on Free Fil-A

Mmm... waffle fries! And chicken sandwiches with pickles! This Thursday, a new Chick-Fil-A is opening in Lauderhill (8190 W.

Commercial Blvd.), and the company is passing out coupons for free meals to the first 100 adult customers in line at 6 a.m.

At first, we thought this was just a cheap publicity stunt, but then we did the math: Each of those tickets is for a year's worth of food (well, a meal a week). Times 100, that's $26,000 in free food! It's like a bailout package for hungry people.

There's a catch: The lines for these promotions tend to form 24 hours in advance, and you may have to

fight off "The Herd," a group of friends who dress up like cows and

travel to Chick-Fil-A openings around the country.
