Price Rollback at San Francisco’s Cheesecake Factory a Huge Success

Those rumour fighters over at Snopes.com couldn’t believe it at first, but yesterday was National Cheescake Day.

San Francisco celebrated by tempting hundreds to The Cheescake Factory at Union Square Macy’s, where people stood around for hours in hopes of scoring some sweet, sweet cake for just $1.50 a slice.

It was brother against brother. It was insanity.

Waiting room chairs were in short supply last night. Click to enlarge:

Orwell almost had it right:

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face, forever hundreds of people standing around waiting for enormous slabs of heavily-discounted cheesecake, forever.

    I wonder if there were enough of those annoying, hand-held, buzzer things for everyone.

    Didn’t see a one.

    Either they might have run out that night due to the massive crowd or they’ve stopped using the beepers altogether.
