The McDonalds on Glebe Road at the west-bound onramp to Arlington Boulevard is again open for business, ending a months-long renovation, and bringing one of the newly designed "swishbrow" style restaurants to the location it has held since 1969. Wireless Internet access is a part of the redesign.
The newly renovated McDonalds at the corner of N. Glebe Road and Arlington Boulevard is open. (Click to enlarge the image.)
An explanation of the renovation reported by Arlington Economic Development said the restaurant will include:"The 'linger' zone which, like Starbucks, includes armchairs, sofas, and Wi-Fi connections;
"the 'grab and go' zone offers tall counters with bar stools and plasma TVs...
"the 'flexible' zone, targeted toward families, with fabric cushioned booths."
However, a quick perusal this morning did not find any of that fancy-panted stuff. I'll have more on this next week. --ST.
