Angus burger, anyone?

Mom and Dad really wanted to go to a specific McDonald's in Times Square while they were here. I couldn't help but laugh-- did they want to visit the Applebee's a few blocks away as well? Maybe we could find a Bob Evan's. But if this is what they really wanted to do, who was I to say no?

It was better than I thought. They happened to see this particular restaurant on a Food Channel program and thought it looked interesting. The front looked like a Broadway theater-- in fact, it was next door to Mary Poppins. Inside it was huge. We got there toward the end of the lunch rush and sat on the third floor, where the only seats were available. The inside was very modern, with a lot of metal and musical performances being projected onto the walls.

The food was the same ol' stuff, but for a Mickey D's, it wasn't so bad. I had more McDonald's in the last week than I have in the last year-- we also went to a McDonald's near my work on their last full day here. It's not as nice as the one in Times Square, but it does have a live piano-player!

  1. That is too funny. My parents are obsessed with TGI Friday's, my mom especially, and ALWAYS want to go there no matter where we are. I guarantee if they see one in Mexico, which they won't, they'd insist on going there for dinner.
