Yeah people are being stabbed and killed over it up outside DC. horns be careful!

PS if you don't feel like waiting in line for one, you could probably go to the grocery store, buy all the ingredients, and then follow these instructions on how to make it before you'd actually get your sandwich:

Funny thing is I was near where that occurred last week. We take our sandwiches serious in Maryland.

Man wtf Hulu. I had Live TV a few months ago, put it on hold while I tried out Sling and YouTube TV. Have been using YouTube TV and decided to stick to that as the price was about the same but it included NBA TV. Wake up this morning and see a $65 charge from Hulu and welcoming me back. Thanks for the heads up a******s. Cancelled it right away as well as put YouTube TV on pause just to at least use the month. Hopefully they have a decent selection of movies or something to make it worth the money. Also had HBO on it so hopefully something decent there as well.

So what kind of dipping sauce goes with Ranch Flavored Wings?

Buffalo sauce?
Also, I know this was a joke, but there's a place in Norfolk (which I know you drive from time to time) called Dirty Buffalo that has Buffalo Ranch wings that are unstoppable. Some of the best wings I've ever had at maybe the best wing place I've ever been to.

I've been to some store delis that sell Ranch Wings. They're okay. I don't mean Buffalo Wings with Ranch flavor in them either, just fried with Ranch seasoning.

Hmm.... driving by Roanoke this time. I have a morning delivery in Salem. I'm across the street from a shopping center; I wonder if they'll have restaurants. Or maybe just shop around in the Food Lion.

Also Kerosene31, turns out that there was a franchised restaraunt here in Richmond that lasted all of 8 months in 2017. They put it in the worst location in the region and didn't market it at all, so of course nobody is gonna go there

Let me know if you need a restaurant recommendation.
Who has a really big parking lot?

Actually, I'm not seeing many options to hang out in Richmond or even convenient Walmarts. I might stop short in Emporia. My delivery is tomorrow morning.

At least the Pilot in Emporia has a 5 Guys Burger and Fries.

If that's where you're delivering yeah there's none in the city. Walmart's are in the outskirts of the city, mostly in the burbs. And yeah Emporia is fine, there's a Wendy's and a Five Guys right down the road from each other. May look into Petersburg as well, but I don't know much about them outside of a popular bbq joint

Had 5 Guys Burger and Fries Bacon Cheeseburger for lunch and some Fo Sho buffalo wings with bleu cheese and celery for dinner.

Early morning delivery in Richmond then Ashland. After that I head toward Norfolk for some parts shipping from STIHL near Virginia Beach.

Getting my Home Time load from Jacksonville, FL so I'm looking forward to that. Feels like a long week, I'm just about at 3000 miles.

My Twitter account got suspended for no reason. I don't harass, spam, post inappropriate content or anything close to violating Twitter rules.

Appealed and got hit with the "your account was suspended for multiple or repeat violations of Twitter rules"

Like wtf. My account is damn near family friendly. I don't even know how long accounts get suspended for. Short term? Permanently? Hell if I know.

Tried the Popeyes chicken sandwich yesterday. It was not life altering, was pretty good.

Saw on the news some guy saw a kid working in a Popeyes in Texas. Gotta keep up with that chicken sandwich demand tough out on them streets...

I tried it recently. I thought pickles on a chicken sandwich was kind of weird, but it had an okay cajun flavor in the sauce.

IMO pickles are best had as spears on the side with any sandwich. Pickles are a natural 'Palette Cleanser' or a kind of flavor neutralizer. It over powers the after taste of anything else you've had recently and ideally means whatever you have next can taste as good as possible.

It's a similar principle to having crackers between tasting Wine and Cheese.

So, I think having it on a spicy sandwich just serves to obscure the flavor which is stupid.
