the day [white castle] came to town
hollywood has its movie premiers, new york has its gallery openings, england has its royal weddings. wichita has its restaurants...
wichitans love food. in fact our little city has the 2nd most restaurants per capita in the nation, right behind dalllas. not only does that give us endless options to pick from on a friday night, but it creates a competitive food market and a breeding ground for new restaurants. several national chains have started here, one of them being white castle. even though white castle packed up their sliders and headed east back in the 30's, today they came back to celebrate their 90th birthday. to celebrate, white castle set up a temporary tent in a dillons parking lot, and invited people to pick up a pair of sliders for 90 cents.
and wichita couldn't have been more excited.
