Winner, winner, chicken dinner
Snow and sub-freezing temperatures on Feb. 2 did not stop a loyal contingent from camping outdoors at the new Chick-fil-A in Des Peres.
Whenever Chick-fil-A opens a new restaurant, the first 100 people in line when the store opens win a free meal a week for a year. The Des Peres restaurant was scheduled to open at 6 a.m. on Feb. 3.
While some accepted the offer to wait indoors, many opted to brave the cold.
Dozens of tents dotted the parking lot, and one group of friends (pictured in the foreground) built themselves an igloo.
