    Really a sin that Popeye’s doesn’t have a liquor license- think of the tie-ins!

      That’s a good thing in my case. I don’t really eat fast food, other than a pizza on a hungover sunday, but I do love Popeyes. If they served Beer, I’d have another reason to go there and I don’t need one

    Ahhh, I always love marketing like this. It reminds of when the OJ Simpson case was going full bore. Driving by a local Doughnut shop I spied a big banner much like you see above. It read, “FREE OJ, with the purchase of 2 or more doughnuts.” Brilliant.

      Shoulda went with the “4 out of 5 pitchers prefer our chicken, you guys”.

    They ought to have a strip mall with a bar, popeye’s, PED dispensary, walk in medical clinic, video camera store, KKK regional office and a hair salon for one stop shopping.

      Pot, kettle. That sounds like the Yankee Stadium neighborhood. Well, maybe not the KKK, they wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the Bronx.

        Leave the Bronx out of it.

    I have only had Popeye’s once in my life (about two months ago) and now I wanna go back. Damn this picture!
