McDonald's Formally Launches A "Walk-Thru" For Drunk, Hungry Customers

While I cannot safely say "we've all been there," I can certainly say that I have -- you know, out after a night of bar-hopping, and ready to drop some dollars on whichever fast food establishment is the most convenient.

For some lucky U.K. late-night drunchers (drunk munchers), a particular outlet of McDonald’s in North Wales is now specifically dedicating one drive-thru late to foot traffic between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends. Why? To encourage its clientele to indulge in a McNugget or seven after a big night out, apparently.

Says a McDonald’s spokeswoman to The Sun: “The ‘walk-thru’ was a local initiative by the business manager of the restaurant to invite local residents to come and enjoy a meal at the restaurant after their night out at the newly reopened nightclub Broadway.

“As the restaurant is in the process of securing a 24 hour license, customers can only use the drive-thru to order food at night, so the ‘walk-thru’ is just a play on how customers can come and enjoy a nice meal, later in the evening.”

Officially, McDonald’s stance on drive-thru lanes is that they’re meant for people in motor vehicles only, due to health and safety policies. However, due to the popularity of the U.K. location’s walk-thru (The Sun reports the staff as having said the concept went “extremely well”), the bosses decided to make it a permanent weekend feature.

Have fun and be safe, U.K. fans!
