Bodega, the pole-positioned anchor of downtown Auburn nightlife, is no more. This week’s Taco Tuesday was its last.

It was a blowout.

Communication major and aspiring TWER correspondent Alice Fraasa was there.

To see young Fraasa – still in the dawn of her senior year! – forced to deal with the sudden closing of her favorite college hangout brought back the memory of my own suffering when I learned in my final weeks as a freshman that the great Coffee Banque – the short-lived pearl of Tiger bohemia which inhabited the same spot!– was not long for this earth, this realm, this Auburn.

From great suffering comes great art.

Please to enjoy “Bodega Memories,” an Alice Fraasa Film.

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
