This weekend, I hosted another dinner at my apartment downtown with the other graduate students from my lab. We did it potluck style again with everyone making a different dish. This time, we started off with some chips and had Korean style beef short ribs made by my friend, Gio, as our main course. For the sides, we had some creamed corn, broccoli, and mashed potatoes! Everything was delicious and it was so fun hanging out outside of our student offices.
Afterwards, we walked to the 7th street area and went to a few of the local spots around there: Seven Grand, Casey’s, and Library Bar. Although I’ve lived in downtown for many months now, I still haven’t gotten a chance to explore more of the other areas. Hopefully I’ll get to discover more restaurants and bars to go to when things settle down after my first year, but I’m sure I’ll be having another dinner in the next few weeks again. Being a host is so addicting!
