A Taco Bell closed on this college campus—and students gave it a proper sendoff
RIP, Nacho Fries.
The Taco Bell at the student center on the Georgia Tech campus closed this week, and dozens of students gave the fast food restaurant the burial it deserved.
As the restaurant’s gates closed for the final time, one student played “Taps” in the shadow of a Chick-fil-A as others patted each other on the back to comfort themselves for the loss. It’s a sad scene, but it’s important that you watch anyway. Because you have to face the reality that this could happen on a college campus near you.
As the trumpet rang its last note, students saluted the closed restaurant. It did its duty, giving students cheap food to eat and an inexpensive way to give their digestive systems a quick tuneup. Now, it’ll probably be replaced by a farm-to-table eatery or something—the kind of place that scoffs at Nacho Fries—and soon enough, the smell of Burrito Supremes and Cheesy Gordita Crunches will be lost to the annals of history forever.
It’s a real shame.
