The closing of the Wrigleyville Taco Bell-Oak Park, IL blog related

Making news is the closure of the Wrigleyville taco bell, I have been there only once (seriously). The hilarious thing is how this location is being lambasted on yelp.com by other Chicago Cubs fans. Mostly due to the crappy service most people received there, and of course the food. I went there years ago and got sick off the food and never went back. Therefore the idea that this restaurant is getting such hoopla is crazy, if you are screwing up your customer’s orders then you should be closed. I believe what is making headlines is that this “iconic” location is being replaced with something totally different and better.
Having restaurants in Wrigley field already kills the need for exterior restaurants, especially crappy ones. The neighborhood is changing again bringing more traffic woes, more jobs and increases in property values (higher taxes). But Wrigleyville has always been evolving, changing, and not always the way we like, only Wrigley field has basically remained the same sans lights or extra seating. The fact that it is such a big deal, is a mystery to me, I know that in fifty years all of Wrigleyville will be entirely different from what it is today.
That may be negative or pessimistic or some shit, but realistically change is inevitable. we can do now is demand that as cubs fans what replaces this piece of shit restaurant is along the lines of the spirit of the old ballpark. Replace them with Businesses that enhance the experience for the Fan visiting the area, tourist going to the game or the residents living there. The best way we can ensure that these businesses stay in line with the cubs spirit is with our wallets, and save our tears not for this shitty taco bell but for something more important, like when the Cubs lose ūüėĘ

Dreams destroyed: Madison Street is being pimped out in Oak Park, IL

I love how some people are still dreamers here in Oak Park, Il or are selling a dream because to believe that Oak Park, Il wants to connect to the Austin area is just a dream. This article or opinion states they hope that Oak Park, Il will give tax breaks to the small businesses like they do the larger developers however with Taco Bell coming on Madison I do not think that the village representatives are thinking likes this at all. In fact, I believe that the author is well-intentioned is smoking the most powerful shit on the planet to think that Oak park, IL is adhering to the ideals he mentions in this article.

The problem with Oak Park, IL is that you are getting an influx of new characters who want the corporate big names, the convenience and the small village ‚Äúsecurity‚ÄĚ that Oak Park, proposes to have, then oh that name recognition! These new characters want all that but fuck all that historic environmental jazz. Trust me I worked with a new young (under 30) resident who did not care what changes were being made at Harlem and Lake so long as their ‚Äúcondo values go up..‚ÄĚ yeah she said that more than once. Then you have the residents in the northern part of Oak Park who are highly residential and do not have an apartment building or business in sight, so they are not affected so they do NOT give a shit.

Which leaves the rest of us fuckers near Madison Ave having to deal with the reconstruction and redesigning of Oak Park, IL but not for the better. Negating everything this author mentions in this opinion piece I wonder if he even lives near the area he is discussing if he is he is surely not awake for all the shit that is going on. And he and everyone else that thinks the way he explains in his opinion piece needs so wake the fuck up.

Taco Bell in Oak Park, Il

OMG so Oak park, IL is going to get a Taco Bell?? Awesome, for my late night tummy, but not for the historic sensibility of the area or its residents! Right on Madison Street too!

I see by the comments that the residents understand what type of impact that this restaurant chain moving into their area would mean for the village, in fact it destroys the ‚Äúlook‚ÄĚ of Oak Park, Il and the chance for smaller businesses to have an opportunity to come in and grow. But what the hell, since the Mayor and Village board love selling Oak Park away and the residents allow it to happen everything is cool until it brings unwanted streams of traffic, destroys the parking structure in the neighborhood or bring unwanted violence from the people driving through Oak park, Il and wanting that late-night taco fix.

Geez, I have to go all the way to the Forest park, IL Taco bell for grub and those fools look shady in that mother but can fix a mean taco. The resistance to this new Taco bell reminds me of the resistance facing the new Taco Bell being introduced in the Pilsen area. The residents crying about ‚Äúauthentic flavor‚ÄĚ but like the new location in Oak Park, IL the sites for development each have been empty for years. So instead of crying about some chain coming in and ruining the ambiance of the area residents should have worked to get smaller businesses into those spots, so Taco Bell would have no choice but to go elsewhere.

Quit crying this is the new Oak park, IL if you are going to do nothing but cry about it and vote the same idiots who ruin your peaceful little village, then don’t worry about it
