Cancel Your V-Day Plans: This McDonald’s is Hosting a Romantic Candlelight Dinner with ‘Musical Selections by Ron’

romantic-candlelit-dinner-mcdonalds

There’s the world’s most expensive Valentine’s dinner, then there’s McDonald’s. If your idea of a romantic night involves big macs and being serenaded by “Ron,” a McDonald’s in North Carolina has your back.

Spotted at a redditor’s local joint, the sign below advertises this particular location’s third annual “Candlelight Dinner” complete with “musical selections by Ron.” We hope this means that Ronald McDonald will be strumming a guitar and creepin’ as you look deep into your date’s eyes while leaning over a plate of lukewarm nuggets at the McDonald’s love shack. Tell me that doesn’t make you hot and bothered just thinking about it.

Restaurant Made for Two Is Probably Where Long-Term Relationships Go to Die

21

I’m bitter, guys. I see a headline for a romantic, “two-person” restaurant and immediately imagine an hour of awkward silences, followed by an hour of failed footsie attempts, rounded-out with 20 minutes spent driving home and hoping the kids are already asleep so you won’t have to feed them cough syrup (the bottle’s almost empty).

22

Intimacy is fine. Forced intimacy is slightly stressful. Without distractions, how is someone supposed to stay interesting for an entire night? I’m guessing that’s just one of the dilemmas faced by couples who visit Italy’s Solo Per Due (“Just for Two”) restaurant, the “world’s smallest” two-person restaurant designed to give fancypants middle-aged couples an uber-exclusive, uber-romantic dining experience, all for only $335 a person.

23

The location and decorations look a little like a dustier Macaroni Grill and the menu consists of homemade pasta and bread, wild fruits, mushrooms and “local confections,” according to Design Taxi.

24

After being walking down the candle-lit driveway and being greeted by the owner himself, couples proceed to spend their intimate evening staring at their menus, staring at the décor, staring at their food, completely avoiding eye contact with one another, and then leaving a glowing review in the restaurant’s “Memory Book,” – followed, of course, by a Polaroid of themselves from the 1950s and their phone numbers, just in case.

This Bacon Poem is Actually Super Romantic

baconbroquet

Maybe I’m just a sucker for bumbling crushing boys with hearts of gold (here’s looking at you, Peter Parker.) But something about a guy who might not be the smoothest of cats, but who still puts his whole heart into expressing his love, regardless of how silly it might seem – I dunno, something about all that just screams “OMG GET INSIDE ME.”

Take this poem, posted outside a small butcher shop, for instance. Surface non sequiturs aside, it just makes sense. The color of romance is red, right? Roses are red. And you know what else is red? Bacon.

With that in mind, check out the surprisingly thoughtful chalk poem below:

See? Now isn’t that sweet?

Finally, His and Hers Potato Chips

Enough with this “what’s yours is mine, mi casa es su casa” nonsense. If I want to have an entire bag of potato chips to myself, that’s damn well what I’m going to do. And no amount of ass-kissing or pussy-footing from you is gonna change my mind.
