An Elegy For Free State's Fries / Tuesday Scenester Pick: Labretta Suede and the Motel 6

If there's one thing LFK is good at, it's getting riled up over abrupt changes to long-standing local traditions.

So, if you're like us, you were probably fucking STARTLED to find out that Free State Brewery has suddenly changed their legendary fries to something that...pretty much resembles the fries at Chili's or any other chain.  We cried when our fish and chips came out on Friday because it looked like a Long John Silver's meal (luckily, the fish was still the same ol' delicious Free State fish).

Chip was ultimately so outraged that he left and headed to Top City's Blind Tiger where he can reliably get a plate-sized chicken-fried steak.

Our ELFK friends:  "This is the most outrageous Free State change since they got rid of the mushroom burger! We're cutting down our Free State patio time from six nights a week to four."

Here's a photo of the glorious former Free State fries:

If you've got any energy left after a long, drunken holiday weekend, make sure to check out New Zealand's Labretta Suede and the Motel 6 at the Replay this evening.  As most of you know from past visits, it's always a rowdy and arousing and debauched good time!  Who's opening for them?  Well, no one seems to be listed on the calendar or flyers.  But we're hoping it's Dean Monkey and the Dropouts!

Eat the Fries at Burgers by Bigg's or for that matter Bigg's Grill and Barbeque! Hand cut fries daily!! Nothing frozen there...
