For generations, it’s been McDonald’s version of the Sphinx’s riddle: You only want McDonald’s late at night when you’ve been drinking, but the only part of the McDonald’s that is open late night is the drive thru. How are you supposed to get McDonald’s?
In the past, we’ve thankfully had to settle with the answer: Hey, why not be sensible and not shove a bunch of greasy fast food in your face at 3 am in the morning? But a McDonald’s in the United Kingdom has a new idea: Try our walk thru lane!
According to The Sun, a Golden Arches location in Llandudno, North Wales – which, lucky for them, happens to be near a nightclub – has tried opening a dedicated late night pedestrian “walk-thru” lane between the hours of 2:30 am and 4 am. After just one weekend, management at the MickeyD’s said the walk-thru lane was so successful they plan to make it a regular weekend fixture. And by successful, I’m guessing that means the number of hamburgers sold was greater than the number of drunken brawls.
