    Hi- On a Facebook deals site I post on, somebody mentioned that McDonald's has just come out with three new items on their menu. Cinnamon rolls, apple fritters and blueberry pancakes have just been added to their menu, and for anybody that has the McDonald's app., you can get a free one if you purchase any size premium coffee or iced coffee between now and 11/9, and show your app when you check out.

    Hi,

    I learned this morning as of last week: you can now dine in.

    More importantly: one of my favorite places to visit the restrooms!

    I remember the first time I ventured in to Chicago after shelter-at-home. I stopped at McDonald's for Big Mac and big drink. By the time I reached Chicago, I realized I had no idea where to find a public restroom.

    Fortunately, a Chinese grocery store allowed patrons to use the restrooms.

    This last year, I have gone camel by restricting drink consumption before I leave home or when out-and-about. I just could not always count on finding a friendly restroom.

    Regards,

    I used to go there at least once a month for senior coffee. I wonder if they still have senior coffee or not. I have not been inside a McDonald's since before the pandemic started. I think the last time I was in one was Christmas of 2019 when I stopped at one in Chesterton, Indiana on my way to Michigan. I have no desire to go into a McDonald's right now just for senior coffee. I might go if I can eat outside. I wonder how they limit the number of customers inside?

    They still have senior coffee, because it's what my Mom chooses quite often.

    Fun article, from both a gastronomic and a sociological point of view.

    BTW, it is followed by a link to an article about Arby's that I think many of us would very much enjoy reading. And I would expect some comments, probabalys some even ribald, to follow. If you read the Arby's piece, do go on to read the "Readers' Choice Comments."

    Sooo, you like wine and are looking for something good to read? Maybe *this* will do the trick! :)

    BTW #2: The LA Times food folks rate 5 fast food fish sammies and reach a somewhat
    unsurprising conclusion. Well, unsurprising to me, anyway.

    She usually writes about film and literature and sometimes politics, but this is another food piece:
