The McDonald's in Perdido Beach plays an important role in many of the books, and is mentioned in almost all of them. Soon after the creation of the FAYZ wall, Albert took over the McDonald's, serving the normal food on the menu. When the hamburger buns ran out, he switched to waffles and bagels as buns instead. After all of the food in the McDonald's ran out, he turned it into a sort of night club. After the events of Hunger the "McClub" is shutdown due to the power plant shutting down. It has been vacant ever since. Also, Albert got some of the "Berto" currency from here, using old game pieces from an old monopoly promotion.
