Summer Hiroshima Moon
When they announced the demolition of the Bennigans at Riverdale Mall, it surprised me because it felt like the whole mall just arrived a year or so ago. It surprised me, but I wasn’t sad, because the Bennigan’s menu had gone from interesting to boring over the last couple of years.
As a result, the imminent arrival of a Chick-fil-a to replace it intrigued me. I’d never eaten in one of these deep south fried chicken sandwich places, but I looked forward to the opportunity.
Not now. Now I plan to walk in when they open, tell them I live close by, that my wife and I eat out once a week or so, and that they will never get our business, in spite of the fact that I love chicken. Bigotry has no place in our community. None. Just ask the Anoka-Hennepin School Board or the Anoka High School.
