From what I know they failed once before in Switzerland? So they might be cautious, take it slowly.
Also if they keep it "special", they keep up the interest? ("I'd walk a mile for a Camel", LOL). McDonalds is everywhere. Is there a thead here about it?
Oh didn't know they failed in switzerland before.

I understand someone driving from Baden to Volketswil for it. If it feels like home or brings up memories, one does all kinds of stuff and it's only 40 minutes - I often drive further just to have dinner with friends.
Can't agree more!

Ask any self-respecting 6 year old what the epitome of fine dining is (in their opinion)

Back in the 80s they had a problem called Pat Grace, a very helpful Irishman. So helpful that he helped 'The Colonel' with some receipt changes for free. Now the poor Colonel, did not understand the saying: there is no such thing as a free lunch, until Pat explained it to him.

Most of the 80s were spent in legal battles with Pat, as he got injunctions preventing them for doing this and that... eventually 'The Colonel' realised that the lunch was not so expensive after all and paid up.

Last year, when my youngest was six, his choice was sushi. It still is.

The trouble is, he's only seven and he eats sushi in quantities like he's wolfing down a burger with extra-large fries.

I'm not trying to show off but I really think times have changed.
