. . . except this isn’t a joke:
Lathan Crump, 19, rode his horse Hollywood into the fast-Mexican restaurant in Commerce, 67 miles northeast of Dallas, on Saturday night while friends recorded the escapade on video. (“And yes,” the Dallas Morning News reported helpfully, “he was wearing a cowboy hat.”)
Crump posted the video to Instagram, saying: “Well ole Hollywood was a lil hungry after the rodeo so I road him in to grab a bite.”
Since then, the video has spread to YouTube, where it’s been viewed more than 6,600 times.
And it’s not the only video of its kind. There are four more on YouTube showing people riding horses to or through Taco Bell drive-thrus: here and here and here and here.
Developers of the 111 Whiskey Row complex on West Main Street are close to signing the first tenant lease, according to project officials and Mayor Greg Fischer, who gave an update yesterday on progress there. Plans call for four or five lower-level restaurants, 13,000 square feet of second-level offices, and a dozen apartments on the upper floors, The Courier-Journal says. Brown-Forman and the other developers hope to finish work by next summer.
