Opening Arguments

Breakfast anytime

One sign that the terrorists haven'n won yet:

McDonald’s is opening its eyes to breakfast by moonlight.

The Oak Book-based chain is testing a late-night value menu called “After Midnight” that lets customers mix and match its best-selling breakfast and lunch items like the Egg McMuffin or Big Mac, with hash browns or fries.

Adding to the array are the Egg White Delight, Sausage McMuffin, Chicken Nuggets, the chain’s new Quarter Pounders, with bacon and cheese, habanero ranch, deluxe with all the fixings, and the Double Quarter Pounder.

The balance of the usual Dollar Menu, with items like the Grilled Onion Cheddar Burger and McChicken sandwich, are also available along with the sausage burrito, fruit n’ yogurt parfait, oatmeal and hotcakes with sausage. Desserts and McCafe beverages are also available.

One of the annoyances of fast-food places is that you have to eat breakfast when they say you can instead of whenver you feel like it. One of the things I like about the Halls where I eat frequently is that it has a "breakfast anytime" section on the menu that kicks in after normal breakfast hours are over. Ah, civilization.

(Let's keep this to ourselves, OK? If Michelle finds out about it, she'll try to come up with a way to ruin it for us.)
