Dick’s Drive-In Edmonds: the wait is over! Not.

Nate and I needed a little sustenance tonight after his school concert. “Hey, Mom! Did you hear Dick’s opened today?” Why, yes. Yes I did. “Let’s go!” he said. Good idea, I figured, seeing as it was after 9 p.m., we hadn’t had dinner yet and we live only blocks from the much-anticipated new Dick’s. Our jaws dropped when we saw the the traffic cops, the cars crowding the TOP Food parking lot and a sea of people waiting, and waiting, for their chance to say, “I ate at the new Dick’s the day it opened!”

While Nate chatted up a classmate, I made my way through the crowd, garnering a few nasty stares as I cut in line to see what was going on up front. After chatting up a handful of folks who were far harder-core than we were, the kid and I left and went to Demitris Woodstone Taverna where we enjoyed a late-night happy hour menu. That said, we’ve still got the jones for a Deluxe. Ah, there’s always tomorrow. Not that I think the lines at Dick’s will be any less crowded then. Meanwhile, here’s what was going down off the corner of Highway 99 and 220th in Edmonds tonight.
