In the final hours of World Vegan Month, Brian Feldman and a group of fellow vegans he found through VegCF congregate at the least likely place for vegans to do so - McDonald’s®.
What will all these vegans be able eat? The answer, of course, is anything they want. Being vegan is a choice, and one they’ve all gladly made. So... dollar salads. And water.
Stop by and be part of, or watch, a bunch of vegans sitting in McDonald’s® eating dollar salads. The moment will stay with you. Forever.
Brian’s chosen McDonald’s® location (one of 31,000+ worldwide) alternately bills itself as “The World’s Largest Entertainment McDonald’s® & Playplace” and “The Most Unique McDonald’s® in the World”. It’s certainly the most bizarre in Orlando, with “gourmet” meal items (ice cream, cakes, pizza, pasta, wraps and paninis), a wishing well, video games (including miniature bowling), McDonald’s® character murals, side-by-side miniature busts of George Washington, Martin Luther King, Jr., George W. Bush, Rudy Giuliani, Abraham Lincoln and a “hula shark”, CNN, Elvises and Monroes, a second floor caged gift shop with the Statue of Liberty, cutouts of Bill Cosby, Clint Eastwood and Tom Cruise, and, according to MANNETRON, one of only four Mac Tonight animatronics in the world (it’s broken).

Public Transportation / Biking and Walking / Vehicle Parking:
LYNX: From Downtown Orlando, take Link 8 to the bus stop across from Panda Express on International Dr. Walk south along International Dr. Turn right on Sand Lake Rd. McDonald’s® will be on your right. From Orlando International Airport, take Link 42; same bus stop. You could also try Link 304 or Link 305, but are on your own. I-Ride (International Drive Resort Area Trolley service): Exit at I-Ride 15. / Biking and walking are both good for you and pleasant modes of transportation on a Monday, and anytime! That stated, depending on where you’re traveling from, this could result in an extremely long travel time. Could be dangerous too. Use good judgement! (There are no dedicated bike racks at the event site.) / Vehicle parking lot is available outside restaurant.
Brian Feldman Projects is Central Florida’s premiere experimental time-based art. Dinners on stage with real life families, leaping off ladders for 24 hours, group tours in Google translated Swedish through IKEA®, dollar salads - this is what we do.
