Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!
Like many students at UNC, I can proudly state that my father is an alumni of this same university.
However, my dad does not fit the mold of the blue-sweater-vest dad that comes to football games. He says he never went to them when he was here, so why would he go now? And honestly, the way our seasons have been going, I don't really blame him.
What classic thing my dad does love to do is point out everything that is different on our campus since he went here and call himself old by saying that he remembers when the trees in the Pit were planted. By the way, apparently the Pit also used to be an elite frisbee-throwing hangout prior to the trees. The 1970s were wild.
He always says that Franklin street has changed the most, and that the only restaurants left from his days are Spanky's and Carolina Coffee Shop. Sorry, Dad, but that list got shorter. Here is the lowdown on the restaurant that replaced Spanky's and other Chapel Hill business.
