Taco Bell Is Going to Stop Having Drive-Thrus . . . and Start Serving Alcohol

I don’t think Taco Bell understands what powers their customers:  We like to get drunk and then have someone take us through their drive-thru.  Now they’re screwing with BOTH sides of that equation.

Because Taco Bell is planning to open about 300 more locations around the country over the next five years.  But those stores WON’T have drive-thrus.  Instead, they’re going to serve ALCOHOL.

It’s all part of Taco Bell’s plan to be more hip and upscale, because those are definitely two words you think of when someone says “Taco Bell.”

7-Eleven Is Now Going to Sell “Restaurant Quality Meals”

If you want hot food at a 7-Eleven, you’re looking at a sad hot dog . . . a taquito . . . or microwaving a burrito.  And you know what?  That’s probably good enough.  No one’s going to 7-Eleven for gourmet food.

But don’t tell THEM that.  7-Eleven just announced they’re going to roll out a bunch of new, quote, “restaurant quality” meals at stores in Dallas, L.A., New York, and D.C. next week . . . including things like chicken parmesan and a chipotle chicken bowl.

And if the fancy new 7-Eleven food sells well, they could start selling it in other stores around the country.

A Starbucks Robber Is Planning to Sue the Customer That Helped Stop Him

 

Back in July, a 30-year-old guy named Ryan Flores went into a Starbucks in Fresno, California wearing an Optimus Prime mask from “Transformers” and tried to rob the place with a knife.

A 58-year-old customer named Cregg Jerri grabbed a chair, slammed it into Ryan, and they wrestled.  They both wound up with stab wounds after the fight, and apparently, once Cregg got a hold of the knife, he landed a LOT of shots on Ryan.

Well . . . Ryan is now in jail, facing charges of second-degree robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

But according to his mom, HE’S really the victim in the end . . . and now, he’s planning on SUING Cregg for stabbing him 17 times during their brawl.

Quote, “The guy, in my opinion, went from a Good Samaritan to a vigilante.  Stabbing somebody that many times, it doesn’t take that many stab wounds to get somebody to succumb to you.”

The chief of the Fresno police says the idea of Ryan suing Cregg is, quote, “ludicrous.”
