Straight from the beaked mouth of the Chick-fil-A press room, comes news that the Atlanta-based fast food chain will be adding a San Francisco Bay Area branch in the fall. Based on our knowledge of the brewing "Jesus chicken" controversy and suspected anti-gay sentiment swirling around the brand, it's a bit shocking they'd dare come anywhere near us. As of now, further details are a little hazy as to exactly where and when the outpost will surface, but interested parties may officially start planning witty picket sign phrases. For the record, Chick-fil-A has been quite spry with some marketing tactics of its own. Said picketers can consider this fair warning.
