Now You Can Have The Taco Bell Wedding Of Your Dreams
Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas is cashing in on Valentine’s Day fervor and the area’s reputation as a haven for wild weddings by letting patrons order nuptials right off the menu.
For a measly $600, you and your spouse-to-be can not only be lawfully wed in a Taco Bell chapel, but the chain will throw in a Taco Bell garter, bow tie, sauce-packet wedding bouquet (mmmm), “just married” t-shirts, champagne flutes, and a wedding cake made out of a Cinnabon.
But here’s the best part: It’s catered! For your first meal as a married couple, you get to chow down on the legendary taco 12-pack. Speaking of firsts, this will probably also mark the first night you and your new spouse shit your brains out together. But you’re committed now, in sickness and in health, forever. And you can’t take back those vows, even if they are administered by the Taco Bell chihuahua.
It’s also worth noting that the fast-food chain is hosting a contest for the first couple to have a Taco Bell wedding that includes an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and hotel stay at Planet Hollywood.

Democratic contender Bernie Sanders vows to rebuild the VA and improve healthcare services for veterans
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders promised on Monday to boost healthcare services for military veterans if he is elected, putting a priority on upgrading facilities and hiring more doctors and nurses for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
To mark Monday's Veterans Day holiday honoring those who served in the military, Sanders vowed to fill nearly 50,000 slots for doctors, nurses and other medical professionals at facilities run by Veterans Affairs during his first year in office.
