U2 chows down on some NC ‘cue



RALEIGH — With or without ‘cue?

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Cooper’s BBQ was about to close Saturday when the band’s private jet services coordinator called, asking for enough food for 25 people: barbecue, pork rinds, five fried chickens, pig skins, ribs, cole slaw, hush puppies.

Owners Debbie and Randy Holt said yes. But they don’t take credit cards so the coordinator, known to the Holts only as Maurice, had to verify there was enough cash on the plane to cover the $277 bill.

The Holts prepared the food for the 10:50 p.m. delivery. Debbie Holt and her 14-year-old daughter, Ashley, delivered the food to U2’s private jet at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, receiving $300 cash.
