29. The first time I ate at a French McDonalds was when I was 14
My French wasn't very good (still isn't) I ordered a Hamburg aux cheval which I thought was the Cheeseberger option. Last time I was in one, I noticed that particular item was no longer on the menu. Almost 40 years later I can safely report that I learned a valuable lesson from that experience and have never ordered "blind" from a menu in another country ever again.

You're right the McDonalds in Europe do serve beer and wine and I don't know if it's just because they are familiar or not but I do pop into them especially when I'm on a long visit and I want something quick, fast and reasonably priced. They are what they are.
