Magical Mystery Tour: Stop 5

Well we know where we're going
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowing
But we can't say what we've seen

We're on a road to... La Cocina

If the Ming Choy had a special place in the hearts (and stomachs) of the Bungie crew on Ontario Street, then the La Cocina was the very soul of the Bungie crew on Halsted Street. La Cocina, a small Mexican restaurant, served the food that Marathon was built on. It had the disctinction of being the "only eatery in existence", well... within walking distance of the Bungie offices anyway. It's importance is enshrined in the credits list of both the Marathon and Marathon 2 manuals. La Cocina has become something of a mecca for Marathon fans, hundreds come each year to celebrate such events as "Last Polygon Filled Night" and "Pam's Jello Wrestling Night".

La Cocina is located at:

2028 S Halsted St
Chicago, IL 60608

Google Maps will drop you right off...

My God! It's gone... The La Cocina has been wiped out. Phhht! Just like that. Nuked down to bedrock.

Yes folks, another Bungie icon has been erased from existence. Who could be to blame? City planners? Mayor Quinby? The Pfhor? Matt Soell?

But what's this? The Bug Stop? How can it be here?

Well it moved to 2029 South Halsted Street some time ago. This is what it use to look like when it was opposite Bungie's Halsted office.

So the Bug Stop, which was directly opposite the Bungie office, just happens to move directly opposite La Cocina? And now Bungie and La Cocina are both gone? Coincidence or...

Some Bungie fans still believe that The Bug Stop is a front for a clandestine operation to save the world from invading aliens (bugs). Of course, we know this to be just nonsense... right?

My head hurts

Right, back on the bus, we're off to see... the home of the Bungie Webmaster.

OMG !!!
