What were you planning on getting your sweetheart for Valentine's Day this year? Candy? Jewelry? Maybe a seven foot tall stuffed animal? Well, if you live in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, cancel all the plans, because now you can get your significant other what he or she REALLY wants: a romantic dinner at McDonalds!
According to The Tampa Bay Times, On Friday, February 14th, one McDonalds in Tampa will convert into a romantic, full service restaurant with waiters, LED candles, flowers on every table and the ability to make phone reservations.
The menu items will be the same as always.
Apparently, the Tampa location is not the only one where diners can experience the Valentine's makeover. A McDonalds in Southport , NC has apparently been undergoing this same holiday transformation for three years now. At that location, in addition to the romantic atmosphere, patrons are also treated to a special Valentine's Day performance by a mysterious singer which the chain will only reveal is named "Ron."
Because what better way to say "I love you'" than by treating your favorite gal to a big box of McNuggets while she's serenaded by a clown?
So make your reservations today - especially, if your goal in the relationship is to be broken up by February 15th.
The White Castle in Dekalb, IL has been doing this for years. White Castle is more romantic anyway.
That’s why I eat at the local taco joint ;)
I happen to like McDonalds. Haven’t cared about Valentines Day for over 20 years.
Dat’s one of the Wost Ideas ever.
With this Clown in office of President of our country,next year reservations at soup lines will be the New Normal.
Not everyone can afford a dinner at a nice restaurant for Valentines Day...
“Not everybody is rich.”
Actually some of the mom & pop restaurants have salad, soup, entre, and dessert for about the price of a meal deal.
McDonald’s in Florida?
Does the shooting start if they get the order wrong?
When our kids were little, we had a romantic Valentine’s dinner for four, at Sizzler ;)
For the same price of McDonalds, I make a good attempt and cook at home with better results. That’s not because I’m a great cook. I’m not.
I would get at least a sock in the jaw for seriously suggesting McD for V-day. I would rather go to 5 Guys or Smashburger instead.
I already got my present for my sweetheart.
An assortment of cleaning supplies and a new toilet brush. She’s gonna love it.
True love at McD’s beats dinner for two at Lutece with someone you don’t love.
Best french fries on the planet!
We have a chee-burger - chee-burger by us, the burgers are very good, it’s all angus beef. The onion rings are excellent, the fries, however, are just eh. Oh yeah, and you can only get pepsi, no coke. They do make shakes, but I’ve never had one. Next time I gotta try one of those.
My favorite French fries come from a local place on the other side of Columbia that appears to be the only one left that makes good fried filet of flounder as well. It’s called Grecian Gardens and typically I get a carryout order or two over the course of a typical weekend.
I esp. like this “romantic McD” idea for the younger set. Who knows, it may open their eyes to new ideas, like... table manners, decorum, and even a skosh of formality.
Particularly since Lutece has been closed for ten years. ;)
Just being cheeky. I understood exactly what you meant, and I agree.
We did this when I was working at the Mickey D’s at Dobie Mall in Austin back in 1975. Nothing original anymore.
Do they go there after blowing $300 on the Valentine’s abortion?
“Not everyone can afford a dinner at a nice restaurant for Valentines Day”
Thats no excuse for being suicidal. Because its suicide for a guy to take his girl to a McDonald’s to celebrate Valentines day. :-)
The girl can do that to the guy, but not the other way around.
I am not much into Mickey-D’s. The nearest one is 2 hours away. I do, however, get a twofer on Feb. 14. It is also wife’s birthday. I guess we will eat out at one of our finer restaurants.
I knew it was Florida...
Knarfster, we are going to Jack’s Ridge in Davao City. Time for you to come.
Well, I think that is better than the soup lines in a re-education camp, but I think that is coming too.
You mean, when they mentioned Tampa Bay? ;)
Cooking up some spaghetti, making a salad, a bottle of wine, some flowers and chocolates, candlelight and music - you can do it all for twenty bucks at home if you're careful.
And it's about ten million times more classy and appropriate for Valentine's Day than freaking McDonalds.
That place looks good!!!
It is a very good small business. I had been there a few times years ago since it was on the far side of the city and kind of forgot about it.
Last year my overseas head director made one of his visits over here and all of us went to GG. It all looked so good and I went with the flounder and fries. It got me hooked. Just about every other seafood place in Columbia that I have gone to has gone completely downhill.
Every time I go and pick up, I half kidding ask to please don’t change a thing. They know me as the guy who picks up double fries, triple tartar, and some flounder. Sometimes I get a gallon of sweet tea.
Why everybody gotta beat up on McD’s?
