What happens when you’re enough obsessed with a food item that you talk about it to your new friends for months on end without stopping?
Well – you might just convince them that hopping in the car after work one night and driving for two and a half hours to try this ‘incredible thing’ is the way to go.
Which is exactly what I did.
I kept reading and coveting all of the Facebook posts about the amazing Temperature Tuesday (buy a sandwich for the price – in cents – of the temperature at 6am) and I realized this was my in. I just threw it out there. And people agreed. Crazy friends. Man I like them.
So on Tuesday evening, we piled into the car and drove through Denver rush hour traffic (it’s terrible, it’ll make you want to cry, I don’t recommend it) for 2 1/2 hours to Loveland. Oh wonderful Loveland. Why are you so fantastic?
And that’s where this happened:
I was really unsure of how it would be received. But they loved it! The ranch! the cinnamon rolls! The fact that there was Dr. Pepper. All of it. It was all well received.
And on full stomachs and after lots of laughs and disturbing other patrons during the meal time… we climbed back in the car for the return drive.
Don’t worry, this trip only took 2 hours. And it may or may not have been a dance party. We pulled back into town about 11pm.
Oh the adventures of the young and fun.
The next day was a little rough on all of us. But the trip? Totally worth the drive. Plus, there was a huge takeaway:
I’m not crazy. Chili and cinnamon rolls is a THING.
Ah validation. So sweet.
