Ever thought about the impacts of eliminating self-serve soda machines, or the vibrant energy of the world’s largest nighttime parade? As your hosts, we tackle these thought-provoking questions and more in episode 26. We explore McDonald’s bold decision to phase out self-serve soda fountains by 2032 and weigh its implications on public health and corporate profits. We also guide you through the bustling, eccentric spectacle of the 50th annual New York Halloween Parade, its unique theme, and the unforgettable experiences one can have at this event.

Now, imagine stepping into a social sports venue – you’re greeted by the diverse sports options and top-notch food and drink offerings. That’s where our discussion heads next, as we compare and contrast the social vibes of shuffleboard and pickleball venues. It’s a complex dance of business operations, creative branding, and the possible addition of a ghost kitchen to entice patrons. But our discourse doesn’t end there; we want to hear your stories about socializing at bowling and shuffleboard venues. So, press play and join us on this lively and exciting exploration!
