Social media filled my belly
A recent tweet (noun~A message posted via Twitter containing 140 characters or fewer),
from a local restaurant that I follow caught my attention. Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles mentioned that they were looking for for a graphic designer to help them with a project and as I happen to know a few, I recommended Maureen Pasley of Pasley Design. Within minutes, Maureen (@immodiggity on twitter), had spoken to Lo-Lo’s, gotten a general idea of what they were looking for and got to work on a draft. A few short hours later she had a preliminary design which Lo-Lo’s liked, social media success!
The story could easily have ended there but WAIT (as they say), there’s MORE! Lo-Lo’s was quite happy with the outcome of their twitter request and to thank me for the recommendation, offered me a plate of their delicious chicken & waffles on the house! (which I graciously accepted).
On to what you really care about…the FOOD!! I ordered ‘Sheedah’s Special,’ A fried chicken breast and wing served with a waffle.
My favorite part of eating fried chicken is the crispy skin and Lo-Lo’s doesn’t disappoint. The skin was perfectly crispy and well seasoned, the meat itself was plump and juicy (many people and restaurants seem to dry out their birds, a tragedy). The waffle was sweet with a hint of cinnamon and a great compliment to the savory chicken.
I must say, if you want a bit of ‘soul’ in your food, Lo-Lo’s is a great place to get it, if you’re an avid ‘tweep,’ follow some of your favorite restaurants on twitter and social media might just fill YOUR belly.
I’m not a ‘professional‘ writer (meaning I don’t get paid to write about my meals), and since said meal was gratis, this piece is less a ‘review‘ than a charming story in which I happen to voice my opinion about what/where I ate.
