The McDonald's on Emu Bank in Belconnen is one of the McDonald's stores where you can try the Chicken Scorcher & Chicken McBites with scorcher seasoning.

I tried the Chicken Scorcher & it is less hot then the KFC Firey Grilled Burger.

Yes, Cityintmac had its McDonald's sign under test earlier this evening. Still fencing up everywhere though when I passed it tonight, but a few people in there that were not construction workers.

Does anyone know if a McCafe is planned to open at the new Masters Hardware at Majura Park?

I ask this as the first Masters in WA is to have a McCafe inside even though a McDonalds & McCafe are in the same shopping complex (so same set up as at Majura Park).

Well Master in Gregory Hills in Sydney has a full McDonalds and McCafe inside it so I presume all stores would, however the only thing I've been thinking is that Majura already has a maccas right next door so it might be a bit pointless...

A few things coming up in the next few months;
The Olympic menu will launch on Wednesday, featuring the McRib (but not at first)

August should also see the opening of two new stores, one at Kippax, another on Flemington Rd in Franklin I believe

Another McDonalds is to go up on the Federal Highway, Kenny/Mitchell along with the Caltex (the one that replaced the Shell) on the edge of EPIC. Expect this one to run 24 hours during Summernats.

Yep this is the store I was previously lead to believe was on Flemington Rd. I think it is the first to open (July 31) with Kippax on August 15, that said, Mitchell could be August 31....I can't remember.

The Lamb Burger is apparently coming out this week, along with Grape Frozen Fanta, Malteser McFlurries and the Mighty Muffin.

Didn't end up getting a Olympic Coke Glass - any time I went to Maccas they had none left. Oh well. Apparently they were cheap and nasty anyway.

Mighty muffin has been an on and off item for the last few years. I bought a coke glass from the self serve registers I think it was $1.25 or something, they also gave me a small cup with it as well, glass does look pretty thin and cheap though!

Yeah I think the Mighty is being made permanent, possibly minus the potato. Not certain though.

The glasses are better than the Coca Cola yoyo's that were given away. You can yo them once & then struggle to wind them up.

But then again, you were given a yoyo if you bought 2x24 can packs from Woolworth's or if you bought 2x600ml bottles from little shops like Quick & Go in the City.

I think they were replicas of the Coca Cola glasses which used to be stocked by milk bars and delis when customers could buy Coke by the glass (for consumption on the premises)....cheaper than buying a bottle to take away, especially in Adelaide, where you had to pay the deposit levy (threepence or sixpence) if you took the bottle away from the shop.

In the junk mail (at my Kambah home), the new McDonalds is called "McDonalds Mitchell" but the address on the same bit of paper is 661 Northbourne Ave, Lyneham.

According to mapi the suburb line is basically right at the edge of the carpark to McDonalds, but does not have a suburb label. Is Kenny next to Harrison with Bimberi Centre and such? If it is, the McDonalds is in Kenny then.

Putting 611 Northbourne into Google Maps gives the address as Kenny

Mapi is the key, and if you use the satellite overlay just to be sure it is certainly in Kenny!

Agreed that it's not within the current boundaries of Lyneham but Kenny is not yet defined in ACT MAPi so technically it's not in any Suburb ATM.

Quite true, I am unsure as to why it is not yet marked on Mapi though considering there are establishments out there (Albeit not housing). I think it is safe to assume though that the boundary marking on mapi would represent Kenny.
