There are those of us who remember when McDonald's was all about proving to everybody that their chicken nuggets actually had something in them that was once alive. I'm not sure how that all ended and if there was a test or something but I love the nuggets. I feel like they've gotten crunchier over the past 10 years and it's very satisfying to bite into.

The question is: would you drive all of the way to Sedona, Arizona to have those crispy nuggets if it meant you got to eat them under the neon glow of blue McDonald's arches?

That's right. In Sedona McDonald's is blue.

According to

"Sedona is famous for its stunning red rock landscape and city officials have made it a priority to preserve the natural beauty. When you have as beautiful of a natural skyline as this city does, it makes sense to bend tradition. 'McDonald's was built in the early 1990s, right after the city was incorporated in 1989,' said Cari Meyer, Senior Planner of the Department of Community Development for the City of Sedona. 'Someone suggested it would be interesting if they did something else than golden arches to fit in with the identity that the city decided to establish."' (full article)

I guess the idea is the town of Sedona is so self-important that they feel nothing should distract from their precious red rock vibe not even America's most popular symbol, the golden arches.

What do you think about this? Would you drive to Sedona to see this freak McDonald's?
