90 Minute Meals

Posted by admin On August - 24 - 2008

~Z.T.~ As Anthony B’s solid set winded down, we decided to get into the Jamaican Jerk Chicken line. If we had to wait 40 minutes until Bunny went on, we might as well make it a productive wait. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. After 20 minutes we could tell we hadn’t moved far, but we were of the “Well, we’ve put in all this time, we can’t stop now” mindset. Then it just dragged.

Eric and I are big JJC fans and the two large Jamaican women behind us insisted it was the best chicken in the festival. As we heard the “One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain” lyrics to “Trenchtown Rock” at around the hour mark, part of me wanted to just say forget this and get closer to Bunny, but how do you wait an hour for food and then not get any?

When we got to the front I saw the hold-up. The operation was three Jamaican dudes working a line so ineffective it would make a German’s head spin. One dude on the grill (which they needed at least two more of) one dude playing with his iPhone and making excessive small talk with every paying customer and one dude kinda floating in between them, chopping the chicken when he felt like it. I wanted to freak out on them and ask if they had any idea how long the line was, but that’s not jahh way to do it at reggae fest. And I’m sure they couldn’t have cared less.

I guess you’re curious if it was worth it. Not at all. The sauce was super strong and I got a nasty case of hiccups for half the meal. It was worth about 12 minutes of waiting, tops.

P.S. if this post felt excessively long and not really worth your time, well, that was the point.
