Cluck, cluck: Business owner finds unwanted ‘rooster’ on her porch

GRAND LAKE – Betty Corbin arrived to work on Sunday, May 29, only to find a man asleep on her restaurant’s porch wearing a chicken suit.

Anyone else might have been perplexed seeing a man dressed like a chicken, but Corbin recognized the suit as belonging to her restaurant, which features fried chicken on the menu. In the past, employees have worn the suit to lure customers into Betty’s Cafe on holiday weekends, she said.

But Corbin had never seen this man before, she said, and she had no recollection of having lent out her chicken suit.

As it turned out, the intoxicated stranger, who Corbin learned was from Littleton, was staying in Grand Lake. Corbin immediately called her husband, who drove the stranger to his rental.

Corbin then learned from clients picking up their catered breakfast that same Sunday at Betty’s Cafe – the day after their wedding at nearby Shadow Mountain Estates – the man had crashed the wedding. Upon leaving the wedding on foot, he presumably happened upon Corbin’s restaurant.

“It’s Grand County, what can I say?” Corbin said.
