One way we’ve found to entertain ourselves on painfully long conference calls is to plan out the combination of sides we’re going to get with our fried chicken dinner at The Colonnade. With more than 30 options ranging from fried okra to black-eyed peas, you’ll have a lot of possibilities to keep you occupied. This family-style dining hall has been around since 1927, so it’s fortunately not going anywhere. Unfortunately, neither are those endless conference calls.
