I stood in line for an hour and 15 minutes to get my hands on some cheesecake.

Worth it.

Two months ago, Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake opened it’s first North American store in Toronto. There has been an enourmous lineup that goes out the store and up the street every single day since then. Normally I don’t like cheesecake all that much, but I was intrigued and my wife kept saying that she really wanted to try it. Monday night I entered the massive line after work (with my trusty 3DS to keep me sane).

The cheesecake is the lightest, fluffiest, thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. It’s like eating a delicious cloud. I also picked up a few madeleines (like a honey sponge cake), and they’re quite good with a strong tea.

Although I would probably wait for the lines to die down a little before buying another for myself, if I had a friend that hadn’t tried it, I’d be willing to stand in line again to buy it for them to try it out.

My question is: What’s the longest you’ve had to stand in line for something? Was it worth it?
