Discussion: Mall Food
On Friday, countless bargain hunters around these here United States will camp out outside of
balmy freezing mall parking lots in hopes of being the first to snag the best deals on electronics, clothes, and any manner of “stuff.” You know the drill — it’s Black Friday, and while you’ll still be a good five or six hours away from digesting Thanksgiving dinner, the summons of saving cash and scoring gifts won’t keep you down.
I, fortunately, will not be amongst you. And while I’m not exactly heartbroken for missing the official kickoff to the holiday shopping bonanza, I will miss those pesky yet iconic mall food court scenes we’ve all run across. Whether it be the tempting stare and seducing aroma of an 800 calorie plus Cinnabon, or the jabbering “SAMPLE” pleas from orange chicken wielding workers at the Ruby Thai Kitchen, there seems to be fast food moments reserved only for malls. Where else, pray tell, can the dichotomy of the pretzel weaving Auntie Anne’s employee be paired next to the oily sheen atop a Sbarro pizza?
What are your favorite mall food court stops, and will you be heading out to hunt the deals on Black Friday?
