I heard that the line was snaked all the way down Telshor up to Lohman. People said that many were camped out in tents overnight and arrived over 24 hrs before it opened. Come on, people it's an Olive Garden, geez. Only in LC can this kind of thing happen. Haven't you ever driven to El Paso and eaten at Olive Garden?? It's not like it's a thousand miles away. How backwards and embarrassing for this town. What will happen when White Castel finally comes to Las Cruces? I shudder to think about it.

24 hours. Bring your camping equipment.

Soon-to-be permanently retired Kent and Anna Mae Evans both attended the first day. Olive Garden had close earlier than expected Thursday when they finished.
The kitchen had no more food and the Evans', of course, each asked for a "to go" box for the table scraps.

Political poll on which parties like what foods in a few standard categories reveals amusing but predictable results.

'Made me laugh' moment at 3:23 when discussion covers how geographical location may influence the perception of how authentic the Italian the food served at the OG is perceived. www.youtube.com/0eFvvYypYcA

Would have bet bagels to donuts that they would have referenced the famed Grand Forks over LC after the national web sensation caused by this review

Wouldn't want anyone to miss out knowing we were in the spotlight. TYT is nearing 1 billion views online.
