Brother's was my favorite chicken place. Your favorite restaurant places are the constants in your life as you get older and try to remain cool. I just got over Chip's on Cole being closed.
Some things about Brothers stick out in my mind: The friendly saleslady with the candy-colored car always made sure you had enough seasoning on the fries, and always cooked new chicken for you if there were only a couple of pieces left. The best cherry limeade in the city. The peppers that were ridiculously hot.
Gone are the picnics with Brothers chicken my wife and I used to have at Exall Park. The memories.
Remember the withdrawal we all suffered when they closed for a while when a car drove through the front of the store? I felt your pain. The time they were down to 'wings only' for two weeks when they got a great review in the paper...I was right there with you.
I am depending on Brothers to re-open somewhere else in the future. There's always hope.
All the cool spots are closing one by one.
