OS Cribs: RIP To The Big Onion

Although we tearfully bid farewell to the glory days of pizza and cheesesteaks at The Big O last May, we just uncovered an important artifact. Stashed away in a dope apartment above Dunkin’ Donuts hangs the beloved Big O sign in all its beauty:

dsc_0274 Ah, what would you give again to enjoy the sweet, sweet taste of a cheese slice from the Big O?

dsc_0273Here’s a side angle of the now-historical landmark.

dsc_0287The freshman year nostalgia continues into the living room where the boys posted an ice cream social sign from Bigler Hall.

dsc_0289And just in case you forgot…here’s a little bit of inspiration for your daily routine.

We miss you, Big O. Rest in paradise you beautiful food palace. At least you’ll live on forever in a College Ave. apartment.
