Chick-fil-A wants to help you celebrate the deep South's oldest rivalry this weekend with free food.
The Atlanta-based chain is opening a one-day-old "Rivalry Restaurant" near the Georgia/Alabama state line Saturday, Nov. 11 for the 125th anniversary of the UGA vs. Auburn University football game (the first game was played at Piedmont Park in 1892). The restaurant will offer free food, customized mini-cows, face painting and a screening of the game.
Former UGA quarterback David Greene and Auburn linebacker Takeo Spikes will also be in attendance.
Half of the restaurant will be painted and decorated in Auburn colors, and the other half in Georgia colors. The pop-up spot will sit atop a makeshift football field, where guests can play a game of pickup before the game begins.
12:30 p.m. Nov. 11. 400 3rd Ave., West Point, Ga.
