An iconic Houston restaurant, Beaver's, owned by celebrity chef Monica Pope, has responded to Chick-fil-A's anti-gay bigotry in the most appropriate of ways: creating a hot sandwich that stands for equality:

Chick-on-Chick Filet - two loving chicken breasts married on toasty buns with a honey mustard witness and joined in celebration with tolerant fries.

Delicious. I'm tempted to travel to Houston just to place an order. If you live in Houston, I suggest you do just that.

In fact, perhaps now is the time to declare tomorrow in Houston "Eat Chick-on-Chick" day to support equality and gay marriage in Texas and beyond.

Folks lining up around the block, waiting to support Pope's values and establishment, would be a fine counter to the lines of hate we witnessed last week wrapping around Chick-fil-A stores.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
