Day 39:

I’m not one to eat fast food breakfast unless I’m either traveling or just really craving it, but today I was really craving a McMuffin. So that’s where I started.

However, today’s food experience isn’t based around how delicious my McMuffin was or how tasty my cold, leftover pizza was…it’s about dinner. I went out to eat with some girls I work with and we ate at this place called Grad School. I was told how amazing this place was. I was a little skeptical; I won’t lie. This place is definitely an oyster (not attractive on the outside, but a true gem inside). Anyway.

Grad School only seats 45 people plus a few patio seats. We sat at a large table in the back next to some other people. I glanced over at what they were eating and the French fries looked incredible.
One of the girls I was with, Tiffany, leaned over to this girl and asked if she could have a fry. This girl looked shocked and just weirded out. We all laughed. It was pretty funny.

But yes, the fries were amazing and so were the tilapia tacos I ordered. I will definitely be going back there. I like to support local business, when it’s good.

Breakfast: Egg McMuffin minus the Canadian bacon
Lunch: Leftover pizza from Old Chicago
Dinner: Fish Tacos from Grad School
