I’m lovin’ it, bringing a McDonalds lab to Edgewood Plaza, where Fresh Market is slip sliding away.
The New York Times had a big story Sunday about McDonalds re-tooling itself under the leadership of a youngish, hippish Brit named Easterbrook. Did you know that their customers are the world’s largest consumers of Apples (the ones that grow on tree, were prominent in Milton “Paradise Lost”)? Did you know that they sell more chicken than cow? And they are revolutionist the produce business by swearing off antibiotics?
So why not have hipster Palo Altans as beta-testers for the new Mickey D?
Or, let SAP Labs HAHAhaus (grand opening March 17, 4 p.m to 8 p.m.) have Edgewood Plaza and get Lincoln Center Jazz West with PA-Native Jason Olaine to take over the historic and beloved Varsity Theater? (Stuff of dreams, I know).
I am literally sending this to Peter Pau of Sand Hill Properties. (and Chop Keenen, and Jim Baer, and Elizabeth Wong.And John McNellis)
I ate at McDonalds just last week, on my way to Independence High, to watch St. Francis v. Sacred Heart. If this fries, I will waive any finders fee.
