It’s hard to say whether she’ll be loving it, but a branch of the Golden Arches in Tampa is offering couples an opportunity to forge their own precious “McMemories” this Valentine’s Day.

The Tampa Bay Times explains:

[T]his location will be transformed on Friday into a sit-down restaurant, complete with LED candles, tabletop flowers and counter employees retrained as waiters offering table service and refills. They are accepting phone reservations, the first 10 of which will receive complimentary roses.

General manager Ernesto Izquierdo credits service manager Liliana Rofario with the idea.

“She came to me and asked me what I thought. She has three kids and she thought it would be a cool thing for them. Maybe for them it’s a first Valentine’s Day, and they can’t afford to go to a lot of places,” Izquierdo said. “There a misconception that it has to be romantic. It’s about showing someone you love them.”

Romance is in the air — even if it is mingling with the odor of reheated cooking oil.
