They decided to give a free burrito and drink to anyone with a 5C student id between 2 and 10 pm today. Bad Idea™
Atwood proctors were organizing whole carloads of people to go down there. Friends told friends, neighbors likewise. It brought the community together in a way that only free food can for college students. I heard from several people that around dinnertime, the line was so long it stretched out the door, around the building, and across the parking lot. By the time we got there at 8, the line was down to about 15 people, with another 25 or so in the dining area.
Number of paying customers: 0
They were really moving along, though, because they had lots of extra people working there. When we left, sitting in the car waiting to turn out of the parking lot and back onto the street, we watched a veritable flood of cars turning off of Foothill and onto Mountain, and then into the parking lot. Probably about 12 in the one left turn cycle. As every car went by, I looked in to see four or five smiling collegiate faces.
