Still scratchin' my noggin' over the new Mickey D's across from the Q at Parkside. It looks great, in a kinda 1990s Tokyo kinda way. In fact, I hear they're developing McSushi as I write this. I'm particularly proud of the first pic of the interior, with the school bus out the window. Eerie, right? Is it true they're making school bus seats bigger to handle the obesity epidemic? Or did I just start that rumor? Anyhow, deeply serious interviews were happening and the guys from "corporate" were down to check things out. JUST to be absolutely certain it was a McDonalds, I felt the need, journalistically speaking, to order a small fries (small fry?) I believe they call it due diligence. They were just as McSalty and McTasty as I remember from my youth. Actually, they seemed better somehow, like absence really does make the taste buds grow fonder. Maybe they're using, I dunno, potatoes now? I'm sure the place'll get trashed, but in the meantime, I really like what they've done with the place. And I'm thru hating on McDonalds. It's too easy. The truth be told, the world is so much more ruthless than one multi-national Hamburgler. Just don't expect me to feed that stuff to my kids. They'll have to make do with Wendy's, great protector of the rain forest that she is.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
