  • Plaque will honor historic McDonald's drive-thru

    04/25/2014 7:26:17 AM PDT · by SandRat · 9 replies
    The Sierra Vista Historical Society will dedicate a new historical plaque for its “An Historic Treasure Hunt; Sierra Vista’s Unique Past” at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, April 26, at the McDonald’s Restaurant, 1802 E. Fry Blvd., Sierra Vista. In November 1973, McDonald’s built its first Sierra Vista location adjacent to one of the largest military posts in the United States. While a significant number of its patrons were soldiers stationed at Fort Huachuca, by 1974 a new U.S. Army regulation governing uniform decorum prohibited soldiers from entering local businesses while wearing their fatigues. The fast food chain responded by opening its...

    Just where is he going to put all those chicken nuggets? Drive-thru staff were left running scared when a skeleton ‘driving’ a car pulled up to their window to pick up some takeaway food. While some workers ran away in horror after encountering the hungry bones, one man took snaps to upload to his Instagram account as another burst into laughter. ‘Oh my god, I wanna start crying,’ said one prank victim. While another joked: ‘You want some sauce?’ The takeaway trick is the work of internet prankster known as the Magic of Rahat who was hidden in the back...

    FARMVILLE, Va. (WTVR)—The drive-thru itself was an innovative concept, but at this one, it’s unlikely you can order any fries or a shake. Carl Eggleston of Farmville believes in innovation when it comes to his funeral business. After 30 years in the business, he’s seen some changes and he’s tried to be one who keeps up with the times and needs of families. Next month he’ll have cameras installed in the chapel, so services can be viewed online for family out-of-state.

Cumberland County sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Tanner told The Fayetteville Observer that the woman had her 3-year-old daughter in the car when she became confrontational with the workers before deputies arrived.

    I remember one Saturday afternoon, as I was bending out the window handing a man his venti, quad-shot, half sugar-free-vanilla half sugar-free-hazelnut, six splenda, extra hot, non-fat, no foam latte-with a sprinkle of cinnamon- served in a double cup plus hot sleeve, he said, "I want to buy the drink of whoever is behind me. Is that do-able?" I looked at the car behind and and for some reason the first thing that came out of my mouth was, "Why?" "I want to show them the love of Jesus in a practical way." he said. "Is it do-able?" "Yeah, sure."...

    Idaho town could ban drive-thru windows02:39 PM MDT on Monday, April 13, 2009 SANDPOINT -- Residents in this northern Idaho city might have to start waving bye bye to drive-through businesses. A proposal to prohibit drive-through services recently passed the city's planning and zoning commission and goes before the city council in May. If approved the ordinance would regulate drive-through restaurants, banks, coffee shops, pharmacies, dry cleaners and other businesses that cater to customers in cars. Existing drive-through businesses would be allowed to continue but not rebuild. "Conceivably, as these existing drive-throughs degrade if they're not maintained, this could lead...

Jamae Feddock, a bikini clad barista at Java Girls, said she first thought the man dressed in women’s underwear and exposing himself was a sick joke, until the man came back several times. The first time he came to the window Feddock said he was wearing a white bra and white panties and touching himself inappropriately. Then he came back...

    Deadly Ozone From Drive-Thru ManiaBy Kellie Hastings Edmonton's drive-thrus contribute 750 tons of Green House Gases into the atmosphere in one month alone. In one year that's 9000 tons from one city! Is it possible that the time has come for us to re-evaluate the importance of what we're actually breathing in here?

    FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- A woman shot in her car while waiting in a Taco Bell drive-thru can sue the restaurant on grounds that it had lax security, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled. A Wells County judge originally ruled against Sonya Winchell, but the appeals court found Taco Bell had a duty to ensure her safety and a jury should decide whether it tried to do so.
