Last Thursday, on Veteran's Day, I had the privilege of attending the grand opening ceremonies for the 94th Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers restaurant. The event occurred at 8899 Florida Blvd., marking the 18th Raising Cane's in the Greater Baton Rouge area. The kickoff event for the restaurant included a Veteran's Day tribute complete with the LSU Pershing Rifles, multiple Cane's crew member Veterans, and country music recording artist David St. Romain, a Veteran himself, singing the National Anthem.
Also in attendance were Raising Cane's Founder, CEO, Fry Cook, and Cashier Todd Graves, Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden, the Broadmoor High School cheerleaders, and the best fast-food mascot around, Raising Cane II! Raising Cane's also presented a $1,000 check to the American Cancer Society and donated 15% of all proceeds from the day to the American Legion. I teamed up with TOMMYStv to capture the ribbon cutting and grand opening on video. Enjoy, and eat some chicken fingers!
Oh, and one more thing. My friends at Raising Cane's left me with this gift basket to give away to a lucky reader of Bite and Booze! Just post a comment below telling me how you order at Cane's. For example, I go for the #1 Box Combo no slaw extra toast, as seen in the above video. Also, make sure I know how to get in touch with you. One winner will be chosen at random. You have until the end of November to enter so I can get this puppy to somebody's home for the Holidays. What is your One Love?
