Who knew playing dress-up could lead to such a delicious outcome?

In honor of its 11th annual Cow Appreciation Day, which falls on Tuesday, July 14, Chick-fil-A is offering customers one free meal (an entrée, side and drink)—but there’s a catch.

You must be dressed like a cow.

“Cow Appreciation Day is the one day where it’s okay to dress ‘udderly’ crazy and get rewarded for it,” said Jon Bridges, Chick-fil-A’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

If you’re not keen on the idea of dressing in head-to-toe garb, the company will also reward those in partial attire (cow-spotted accessories are acceptable) with one entrée. So, it’s a win-win, no matter your preference.

Last year, the restaurant chain saw 1 million cow-clad customers nationwide, proving once again that people are either super die-hard chicken nugget fans or genuinely look forward to dressing in their best cow-themed ensembles.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I’m sure half the people that go there don’t have to dress up, they just have to walk in.

Hmm on

I would rather starve.
